Why Beeck?

Joining the Beeck Center team is an opportunity to combine my experience in digital service delivery with my passion for social equity and inclusion. Historically, technological innovation has been one of our most impactful tools for combating poverty and inequality. As advances in technology and data availability continue to progress, there is an enormous opportunity to leverage these resources to increase opportunities for historically underserved groups and individuals. I am thrilled to be joining a team seeking cutting edge and creative solutions to some of society’s most important challenges.

What issues are you most passionate about?

I am especially passionate about bringing equity to healthcare and empowering patients and healthcare providers through open and responsible data exchange. At Beeck, I look forward to exploring innovative and scalable digital solutions that connect eligible Americans with public benefits and make the benefits application process simpler and easier.

Who inspires you?

I am inspired by Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha who leveraged the digital and data tools available to her as a pediatrician in Flint, Michigan to detect increases in her patients’ exposure to lead. A tireless advocate for the children of Flint, her story underscores the potential of data-driven solutions for social impact and the power of passionate and resilient advocates for policy reform.
