He recently held positions of Director of Performance Improvement & Strategic Analytics for a co-op healthcare insurance company and Director of Planning & Analytics for a community health program. David’s educational background includes Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in aeronautical engineering (yes – he was a rocket scientist), and early in his career he realized he desired to concentrate his professional efforts in an industry focused on helping people more than his fondness for space exploration.
