About Erin

I'm a bilingual multi-talented, world-traveled healthcare professional with passions for my job, travel, health/fitness, fine arts and fashion. My extensive experience in medicine and research have highlighted my passion for giving to the professional community and spurned my calling to disrupt the healthcare industry from the professional's perspective. My hobbies (including exercise, travelling, dancing, writing, fine arts and fashion design) contain passions that spill into the startup space all on their own, but also help me with creative, collaborative and constructive thinking.

Currently I'm not in a capacity to offer monetary assistance in exchange for equity but I hope to change this within the next 2-5 years; in the meantime, I'm more than willing to work behind the scenes at building an innovative new venture.
