Vice President, Operations
Fort Mill, SC
At Lash Group, I lead a portfolio of business units that provide patient services, including reimbursement support, patient assistance programs, copay assistance and adherence services for a range of specialty products. I work closely with pharmaceutical manufacturers to identify strategies and implement tactics to support patient access to therapy. I’ve led the design, development, and implementation of programs that service both patients and providers, supporting access to and coverage for high-cost pharmaceutical and biotech products.
I focus on quality assurance and process improvement, which has led to innovative work processes and system solutions to facilitate a portfolio of services addressing complex reimbursement issues across payer types. My experience spans across many disease states and specialties, including oncology, rheumatology, dermatology, immunology, ophthalmology, hematology, mental health, cardiology, endocrinology, pediatrics and primary care. I have supported over 25 program launches for over 50 products, including 14 newly FDA approved products.
Before joining Lash Group, I completed a hospital internship program assisting with preparations for a survey by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations. I gained additional regulatory and compliance experience by working in a manufacturer's environmental health and safety department. I received a B.S. in biology with a concentration in public health and medical microbiology from Virginia Tech.
