I’m inspired by...

People who genuinely strive to make a difference to others and to the society despite the circumstances.

 

I challenge myself by...

TRYING, trying to conquer my fears, trying something new, trying to challenge self-limiting beliefs… there is no failure except in no longer trying.

 

I encourage innovation in the organization by...

Celebrating failure.

 

When I’m stressed...

I sing :)

 

I live by...

The motto “Try and fail, but never fail to try.”

 

My take on the access to healthcare...

Access to healthcare has to be better than yesterday! Each one of us as individuals in the healthcare industry have to strive towards it. It is our duty and our right! Roche is a committed partner in delivering better outcomes to more patients faster.
