She brings with her 20-plus years of successful corporate experience in the health-care and medical-device industries; her impact was most noted by the teams she created and built, and by the results they achieved in the functional areas of learning and development within the employee base and sales organization, as well as within the client base.

Fantastic! High energy, a great sense of humour and she really understood what we were trying to achieve.
