Purpose Statement: “To lead people and communities to have an indelible impact.”
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I am the Co-Founder and CEO of OncoSec Medical Incorporated, a biotech company pioneering new technologies to stimulate the body’s immune system to target and attack cancer.
I have always been a bit of a serial entrepreneur, and I place great value on helping future leaders overcome challenges through mentorship and education. I am the Co-Founder and Director of the Young Entrepreneurship & Leadership Launchpad (YELL), a program that creates an eco-system for students and future entrepreneurs to learn the skills to have rewarding careers. I was also a mentor for The Young Entrepreneurs program (affiliated with TiE) and led my teams of students to win the 2012 and 2013 global business plan competitions.
While I consider myself a leader in the business realm, I place a high priority on health and lifestyle. In my spare time, I am triathlete and competitor, including two-time Ironman. I was the Co-Founder of InBalance, a lifestyle company focused on helping entrepreneurs and busy executives balance hectic schedules and train for endurance sports.
Having endured the ups and downs of working in the biotech industry for over a decade, I’ve learned that the key to success is to not let the fear of failure stop you from exploring opportunities. A quote I live by: Calculate the risks and don’t be afraid to take them.
