Areas of Expertise

Professional Experiences

I have experience for over 20 years in the medical device product development industry as a biomedical engineer. Throughout my career, I have utilized trade secrets and intellectual property and have granted 56 US patents, 17 international patents, and have over 50 patent applications pending in the US and abroad. In my multiple roles ranging from entry level medical device design engineer to CEO, I have led the efforts to ensure confidentiality of intellectual property and trade secrets among surgeons, partners, academic institutions, and suppliers through diligent use and enforcement of non-disclosure agreements and development agreements to protect all parties.
In addition to my work in the industry, I have taught as an adjunct professor at a private university in the Executive MBA and Healthcare MBA programs. In both these curriculums, along with other topics, I stress and educate on the importance of intellectual property (patents, trade secrets, copyrights, and trademarks) and maintaining and protecting this confidential information.
