How I can help you

I am looking forward to assisting SCORE Clients in the area of Medical Products - pharma, biopharma, medical devices, clinical diagnostics, nutriceuticals.  With my extensive experience in commercial aspects of these products (sales, marketing, business development, commercial assessments and pre-launch marketing in both domestic and international environments), I hope to provide clear and concise assistance as a Certified Mentor and Subject Matter Expert.  I have had numerous successes mentoring talented individuals.  In the big company environment, we often have  examples of small groups charged with bringing new products to market.  In addition, consulting has extended my expertise working with inventors and smaller organizations during their formative times of product creation.
