At Pfizer, our Purpose is clear – breakthroughs that change patients’ lives.

In the face of unprecedented challenges like COVID-19, growing social and health disparities, and climate change, science-driven biopharmaceutical companies like Pfizer have an opportunity and obligation to be part of the solutions.

That’s why, together with our partners, Pfizer colleagues are working every day to apply science to help solve some of society’s greatest challenges so that we can make a meaningful difference in people’s lives.

As Pfizer’s Chief Sustainability Officer, Senior Vice President of Global Health & Social Impact, and as President of The Pfizer Foundation*, I oversee Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) and global health work across Pfizer to help build a healthier, more prosperous, more sustainable world for all.

Together with my global team, we are leveraging the full scope of our resources and partnerships to advance environmental, social and governance issues to ensure better health for everyone everywhere– ranging from redefining how we fight infectious disease to efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to expanding affordable access to our breakthrough medicines and vaccines. I also lead Pfizer’s patient advocacy team, which works in close collaboration with a range of external stakeholders in the research, development, and delivery of our medicines and vaccines to help address patients’ needs.

Prior to joining Pfizer, I worked on the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Community Health Team, which focused on promoting individual and community health by increasing social support and connection. I also served as Associate Director of the Center for Interdisciplinary Research on AIDS (CIRA) at Yale University’s Department of Epidemiology and Public Health.
