I am an entrepreneur, author, speaker and advocate with a passion for helping people thrive. As Co-Founder and CEO of Diabetes Daily, a leading diabetes online community, I strive to help everyone touched by diabetes achieve a healthier, happier and more hope-filled life.
The thread that connects my work is a belief that we can use technology to connect and empower people to flourish. The heart of my skill-set is bringing people together around a shared vision of the future. I believe that open communication, recognition of personal interests, and a willingness to find the third way that helps all involved is key to developing long-term partnerships that snowball into transformational change. I love working with smart people to tackle big problems.
My other passions include promoting entrepreneurship and economic development in Northeast Ohio. I am past President of the Hebrew Free Loan Association, a non-profit organization that has been providing interest-free loans to responsible individuals since 1904. We have helped over 25,000 families with over $8.5 million dollars in loans.
I’ve been known to sit at a piano and lead a late night singalongs at conferences and Burning Man, though my beagle, Charlie, has the superior singing voice.
