What are your current responsibilities?   
As the Director of Endocrinology Business Operations, I lead several initiatives aimed to positively impact the business results of our therapeutic area, ranging from resource deployment to performance tracking and longer-term strategic planning.

What do you enjoy most about your work?    
The variety – I get to work across all four of our promoted Endocrinology brands on a range of topics, from month-to-month business performance to longer-term initiatives. I also get to work regularly with many great people across our organization – global marketing, multiple cross-functional stakeholders in the US, our brand marketing teams and our 85+ member Endocrinology field-based team.

What makes our company attractive as an employer?
It’s a strong global company with a great employee culture. Every day our work involves providing treatments and solutions for patients in need.

Which of your childhood hobbies are now covered in your job?
Most of my childhood hobbies were team sports (basketball, football, rowing). All require collaborative teamwork and to some extent critical thinking – which are also the two most important elements of my job today.

Publication of Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany.
There are two different, unaffiliated companies that use the name MERCK. Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany, which operates this website, uses the firm name “Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany,” in the United States and Canada, and also uses “EMD Serono” in biopharma, “MilliporeSigma” in life science and “EMD Performance Materials” in materials business. The other company, Merck & Co., Inc. holds the rights in the trademark MERCK in the United States and Canada. Merck & Co. is not affiliated with or related to Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany, which owns the MERCK trademark in all other countries of the world.   To reflect such fact and to avoid any confusion, certain logos, terms and business descriptions of the publications on this website have been substituted or modified, such as by referring to “Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany” instead of “Merck” standing alone.  Publications on this webpage, therefore, slightly deviate from the otherwise identical versions accessible outside the United States and Canada.
