Why I work at VuMedi:

“I started my first entrepreneurial venture in college and it failed miserably. But the thrill I felt of creating, building, and evangelizing something new and potentially groundbreaking was a feeling I wanted to feel the rest of my life. I work at VuMedi because it stimulates my energy, passion, enthusiasm, and relentless desire to solve the world's problems and grow.“

Outside of work:

“I enjoy great food and have eaten at over 30 Michelin Star restaurants. I also collect vintage T-Shirts of Bay Area sports teams. On the weekends my wife Laura and I, while still co-founders, have lost controlling interest at home to a baby daughter Clara, the new CEO.“

Why I work at VuMedi:

“Healthcare has always been near and dear to my heart, and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work at a company providing cutting-edge technology and education to our doctors on the front lines. I am inspired by scaling up high-growth companies. VuMedi is poised to be a catalyst in the transformations sweeping the medical industry today.“

Outside of work:

“My wife and I are usually trying to defuse some type of fight between our 3 boys while concurrently keeping them active and tired. Otherwise, I am training for triathlons by swimming, biking the hills of Marin, or running with our 2 dogs.“


SVP, Head of Sales
Eric Pepper

Eric joined VuMedi after spending time as a member of the company's advisory board. Prior to making the proverbial leap across the chasm, Eric led teams at Everyday Health, Practice Fusion and Epocrates, bringing revenues, increasing valuations, and taking names along the way.

Why I work at VuMedi:

“I've spent my career following the continuum of physician behavior, from the way they learn, to the tools they use. At Epocrates we pioneered mobile. At Practice Fusion we created a better EHR experience. Now as treatments become more complex, doctors need more than banner ads and "awareness" from industry. They need real learning, longer form education, to make informed decisions. VuMedi does that better than anyone."

Outside of work:

“When I'm not wrangling sassy 9 year old soccer players or mouthy "lax bros" on the weekend, you can find me running to the gym. My wife Lia and I love to play tennis and sneak a few hours out to dinner, before the reality of 3 children, Max, Chase, and Paloma comes calling.“


Senior Director, Head of Medical Education
Desirae Hazen

Desirae came to VuMedi from Cardiovascular Systems Inc, where she facilitated peer-to-peer physician education and thought-leader training. During her time there, her father became ill with a complex medical condition that his care team struggled to treat, and Desirae recognized the need for sharing information about treatment strategies at a much larger scale.

Why I work at VuMedi:

“I’m passionate about bringing quality educational videos to physicians, so they can stay up-to-date with the advances of medicine. Being a constant learner and seeker of new experiences, I enjoy that my role at VuMedi provides endless learning opportunities and the ability to wear many hats.”

Outside of work:

“I’m an adventurer, travel enthusiast and animal lover. I enjoy being in nature and spending time with my son and two dogs. I enjoy diversity in experiences and people.”

 


Customer Success Director - Pharma
Lacie Herman

Lacie spent the first half of her career working alongside healthcare providers at the Mayo Clinic, and the second half in Customer Success roles in the healthcare industry. At VuMedi, she’s bridged both worlds, leading a team of Customer Success contributors focused on delivering results and driving value for her clients.

Why I work at VuMedi:

“My passion for healthcare began with my own struggles as a teenager to take control of my own health. After watching a very close relative’s health fail, I set out on a mission to change my own health and the health of those around me. My mission for positively impacting health has never waivered. My choice to come to VuMedi was to further that mission – to teach and educate those working on the frontlines of healthcare. It doesn’t get much more rewarding than that.”

Outside of work:

“When not at work, I like to spend as much time as possible outdoors with my family. We live in the Minneapolis area and enjoy all four seasons. Summers are spent on the lake: swimming, paddle boarding and boating. Winters are spent in the snow: sledding, ice fishing and snowmobiling. Kayaking and hiking fill the time in between.”


Chief technology officer
Bozidar Benko

Bozidar wrote his first line of code when he was 11 and since then he has been writing software, building, leading development teams, teaching software programming, and contributing to open source projects. The biggest joy on a random day for him is a brainstorming session, followed by a quick execution in the form of MVP. After a few iterations and measurements, some end up as failures, some as decent improvements. A few end up as breakthroughs!

Why I work at VuMedi:

“Born as a relatively poor person in a small village in Croatia, then moved to a small town, then the city, then across the ocean, I've experienced how much environment shaped me to become a better person. At VuMedi, we are building the environment, where all doctors of the world can better themselves. One of them, in Croatia, performed ACL reconstruction on my knee, using the technique learned on Vumedi.”

Outside of work:

“I enjoy spending time with my wife and 3 kids. My favorite exercise with them is to find something in nature, in a game or around us and try to explain to them some mathematical or algorithmic concept (finding Pi, Fibonacci numbers, ...). They can tell when it's coming... Every few years I find a new activity for myself. In the past, I did basketball, soccer, electric guitar, online poker. My current obsession is tennis.”

Marilee joined VuMedi with a proven track record in customer success and account management.

Outside of work:

“Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Joel, and our dog, Roscoe. I’m passionate about two hobbies – gardening and crafting a variety of handmade products including soap, lotion, lip balm, bath bombs, and laundry soap. In the spring and summer, the two hobbies intersect, with varying degrees of success, as I try to incorporate flowers, vegetables and herbs from the garden into new soap and lotion concoctions. ”

This is a team that spends time upfront getting aligned on goals, so we know what our wins will look like. It’s fun to work in an environment where we’re all working to steer the ship in the same direction.”

Outside of work:

“I like to pick up a new hobby, discuss it obsessively, train to the point of mediocrity and then move on to the next thing. Feel free to ask me how tennis, piano, rummy and embroidery are going. ”
