About me

I was born/grew up in: Born in Colorado, USA, and grew up in Victoria, BC from 3 years old.

I now live in: Outside Toronto, ON

I completed my training/education at: BA in Pacific and Asian Studies (Japanese language and literature) at University of Victoria, MBA London Business School, UK     

What I do at work

I solve complex business problems creatively through analytical business decision making. I use middle school math extremely well! I seek input from a large number of people and lead a diverse team with different skill sets, backgrounds and perspectives. 

My career path is

This career path is not at all what I expected! I taught English and the martial art Aikido in Japan; this unique skillset in a special environment led to a job in the pharma industry. Then I went on to complete an MBA. I have continued to develop my career in pharmaceutical industry.

I am motivated by

Knowing that patients are able to receive life saving treatments is my main motivation. I enjoy the challenge of a complex business environment. I like solving problems and getting things done – there is satisfaction in resolving different points of view and closing a deal.

How I affect people’s lives

Making Amgen medicines available to patients while navigating an extremely complex and constantly changing political and business environment. My role contributes to patients’ health and this gives me great satisfaction.

Outside of work I

I practice Aikido (martial art). I enjoy skiing, travelling to Japan and sunny retreats, raising my son.

My advice to others

Get a broad range of experiences and learn a different language – these help you to understand and engage with other people. I enjoyed STEM in high school but chose to pursue an arts degree. I have traveled to 30 countries and lived in 5 countries, which gave me broad exposure to a wide range of perspectives and the habit of looking for what people have to offer and appreciating it.

When I was a student, I enjoyed:
  • History
  • Math
  • Physics
When I was a student, I would have described myself as someone who:
  • Organized activities for my friends
  • Liked reading
  • Practiced the martial art Aikido
