Vanessa’s Story
The Pioneer
Vanessa is unfazed by the “impossible.” While studying at Princeton as a pre-med, she became the youngest European woman to climb Mount Everest. She was working on expanding one of China’s largest private healthcare companies in Beijing when she heard about HealthTap. Using digital tools to increase healthcare access and reduce costs for millions of people was exactly what Vanessa believed the world needed. She's been making milestones—like launching the platform in Chinese and Spanish—ever since.
