Patience & Dogged Perseverance

I met Richard through my father in the late 1980s. Shortly after meeting, the three of us became part of a high impact healthcare technology startup company. The startup specialized in eligibility verification software and data transmission technologies for State Medicaid Departments.

After a few storied years of working together, Richard and I eventually pursued different business opportunities. As we went our separate ways, our intention was to work together again in the future. While we remained close family friends over the years, it would take almost twenty five years to reconnect for a new venture.
