Greatest influence: "Joanne Ayoub, director of organizational development at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston. She always has been there to offer advice and counsel and a good laugh when I needed it. I owe much of my success to her wisdom and guidance through the years."


Best professional advice: "Balance intuition and evaluation. Trust your instincts and then back them up with facts. That has been a guiding principal for me through the years."


Early aspirations: "I’ve always known that I wanted to do good and make a difference."
