An Insider's view of Ro

What does your typical day look like?

My day involves a lot of interactions with different teams to communicate and align on the ‘why’ behind the decisions we make as well as leading the work of the product design team — it’s full of constant decision making and communication throughout the day.

What is your vision for the company?

Ultimately, we aspire to be your first call — to either handle everything you need from beginning to end or to guide you throughout your journey when you’re better served by others. We see a world in which patients are in complete control of their care. A world in which physicians, nurses, and pharmacists are empowered, not replaced by technology.
