Hello! I am exploring a career “pivot” into product. I have a life science and healthcare background, turned growth strategist; venture capital, strategic partnerships, and business & corporate development. I realize there is much overlap with my growth strategy expertise on the product side. I would appreciate other “Fisher’s” thoughts and welcome a chance to chat. Thank you in advance!
