10 Years in Pharmaceutical Sales Management


I have been a top ranked district manager, and I do mean the tippy top of the leader board, year after year!

I have experience in the fields of GI, Cardiology, Diabetes, CNS, Neuroscience, Lipid Lowering agents, and Pain.

I have significant experience in reimbursement. Helping our accounts understand how to get a product approved and then providing the support they need, by phone, or many follow-up visits.

I am known for having a clinically top ranked team, motivating, a teacher to my people, a strong developer of their raw talents.
