Executive Vice President
Rebecca’s 20 year career has focused on building more effective, person centered technology enabled care models. She uses her unique background in product development, medicine, and public policy as both an Investor at Vive Collective and to go deep with companies on product, go to market, and scaling up the organization from early stage through growth.
Rebecca began her career in global health as an academic researcher and Fulbright Fellow in maternal health, and as Co-Founder of a not for profit that supports local social entrepreneurs across Sub Saharan Africa. She received her Medical Degree from the University of CA San Francisco, where she focused on primary care innovation and the burgeoning role of technology in medicine. Rebecca then served as the Medical Officer for Innovation at Health and Human Services, working on early policy and standards development to improve patient access to health data and interoperability. She then returned to Silicon Valley and spent the last decade in product leadership at startup, growth stage, and public companies including leading one of the earliest remote monitoring products for chronic conditions at Validic, and as an early product leader at Livongo and then Teladoc post acquisition. She most recently helped the Homeward Health team launch a new care model for older adults living in rural America before joining the Vive Collective. Out of recognition that health requires far more than a better healthcare system, she also personally invests in increasing quality, affordable housing for community members living with medical disabilities.
In her personal life, Rebecca is matriarch to a blended family of 5 kids, 4 chickens, and one enormous cat on their urban farm in the San Francisco Bay Area.
