I couldn't be more excited to share the news that I've officially joined the incredible team at DigitalOwl as a Sales Director. It's an honor to be part of a company that's transforming the way we review and understand medical records through groundbreaking AI technology.

For those of you who don’t know me, let me introduce myself. With over 20 years in the Life Insurance Risk Assessment Industry, I've gained invaluable insights along the way. My journey started by selling paramed exams with ExamOne in vibrant markets like Portland, Oregon, and Washington, DC. Later, I returned to my hometown of Kansas City and ventured into offering oral fluid testing solutions to Insurance Carriers with OraSure Technologies.

My recent roles with MIB involved spearheading data solutions to combat fraud and working with members to access EHR records that speed up the underwriting process. Then, at Milliman, I was forging relationships with new data sources to offer more efficient underwriting solutions to the market I've come to love. Now, as Sales Director at DigitalOwl, I'm taking on a new challenge—revolutionizing the way underwriters and claims analysts review and understand medical records.

Apart from my work at DigitalOwl, I'm actively involved in industry organizations like AHOU, where I serve as the VP of the Program Committee. I'm also a Co-Membership Chair on the SEHOUA board and Secretary for the KC Risk Selectors board. These roles keep me at the forefront of industry trends and connected with visionary leaders.

Now, let's talk about DigitalOwl—a company that's reshaping the landscape. Our AI-powered platform is revolutionizing the review and understanding of medical records. Through cutting-edge technology and a user-friendly interface, we transform dense medical data into insightful, human-readable summaries in hours, not days.

What sets us apart is our advanced proprietary Generative Text model. It doesn't just recognize entities within the text; it delivers contextually relevant, easy-to-understand summaries. This empowers underwriters to efficiently assess risk and make informed decisions. We're not just delivering summaries; we're delivering game-changing insights.

When I first saw DigitalOwl's demo, I was blown away. Our ability to dive into the full medical record, capture every crucial detail needed to underwrite a case, and present it clearly and concisely—it's a game changer for the market.

My new role at DigitalOwl feels like the perfect fit for me given my years of experience in the industry. The opportunity to contribute to the transformation of the medical data review process is truly exciting. Working with a company that combines innovation, efficiency, and AI-powered technology to transform the medical data review process feels like a natural next step for me. I am honored to collaborate with the talented team at DigitalOwl, united in a commitment to driving positive change in the industry.

Let's connect soon! Schedule some time with me to learn more about DigitalOwl and how our solutions can empower your underwriters to work smarter and faster.

Thank you for the warm welcome, and I can't wait to connect with all of you.
