Q. Tell us about a job you did not get or take. How did this shape your career path?
A. My original intent was to go be a physician and I completed most of the pre-med classes at Amherst. It
wasn’t until after my three years of research at the NIH and a year into graduate school that I realized that I
didn’t want to pursue that type of a career in medicine. However, my interest in healthcare remained and I
parlayed my science background into a job as an associate in Equity Research on Wall Street analyzing
healthcare companies. After a decade, I went into corporate lending and determining which companies to
finance and help grow.
