Q: What inspired you to join the MapHabit team?

A: I know and respect Dr. Stuart Zola, one of the co-founders, from our shared past in the field of neuroscience.  Alzheimer’s disease costs the healthcare system tremendously, and with aging baby boomers, cost will only increase 2x-4x over the coming years. Providing a solution to the financial, physical, and emotional challenges posed by dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, and memory impairment overall isn’t just a priority, it’s a necessity.

Q: How do you foresee MapHabit helping people?

A: The MapHabit™ system is broad in that it is a mechanism which meets the patient wherever they are in the spectrum of memory impairment, but focused in that it can be modified as patients’ needs change. For example, MapHabit™ can start with words to aid in memory, but if the patient digresses to lose their literacy, we can change the memory stimulation to images, and then to icons, if needed. The flexibility of the MapHabit™ software to provide the best solution for the ever-changing needs of the patient to aide in their memory of habits is revolutionary.

Q: How does your experience impact MapHabit’s success?

A: I am blessed to have extensive business experience and connections in the health care industry culminated over the past 30+ years of building, running, and selling healthcare-related organizations, in addition to my service as committee chair and member of multiple boards of directors and trustees.

Q: What inspired you to join the MapHabit team?

A: After hearing about the MapHabit™ product, I was inspired by the potential to truly help memory impaired patients and their families / caretakers mitigate the effects of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.

Q: How do you foresee MapHabit helping people? 

A: I am confident the MapHabit™ technology will provide valuable tools to assist patients, families and caregivers in improving the quality of life for all stakeholders. When loved ones struggling with dementia, for example, can become more self-sufficient through the memory-enhancing support of MapHabit™, that not only takes away part of the burden of support for their loved ones, but it also empowers them with dignity and confidence to live their best life.

Q: How does your experience impact MapHabit’s success? 

A: I have spent my career as an executive in complex medical organizations improving the health care experience for patients and families. I am excited to apply this perspective in helping MapHabit do the same for all those impacted by the effects of memory impairment.

We are so excited to have such a strong team of experts at MapHabit™ assisting us in helping people with dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, and memory impairment live better. Stay tuned to meet more of the MapHabit™ team, and thanks for joining us in our journey.
