The 2022 TCS New York City Marathon will be my second NYC marathon and I am thrilled to be running as a member of the NAMI-NYC team! I am an investor in the healthcare industry. Over the past 15 years, I have had the privilege to work with several life science companies developing and marketing therapies to address critical unmet needs in neurological, psychiatric, and substance abuse disorders. Working with both scientists and business professionals in these areas has been incredibly rewarding and has strengthened my passion for raising awareness of mental health. Additionally, I have seen how mental health issues impact the lives of family, friends, and colleagues and have developed a deeper appreciation for the importance of prioritizing my own mental health. During the last two years of the COVID pandemic, running has been a critical component of my self-care practice. With both professional and personal inspiration and motivation, I joined the NAMI-NYC team for the 2022 United Airlines New York City Half Marathon in March. I look forward to deepening my commitment to and support for this wonderful organization running as a member of the NAMI-NYC marathon team this November!
