I strongly believe that great work and great brands are born when culture, sound strategy and timely execution meet. Focusing on these three pillars has led to incredible success. Over the past twenty years in the pharmaceutical industry, I’ve launched and grown three billion dollar brands, won numerous awards for innovative marketing initiatives, and built and led highly engaged teams committed to success but grounded in ethical decision making.

 

I received my MBA from Kenan-Flagler Business School at the University of North Carolina and my B.S. degree in public affairs from Indiana University. I’m married to Morgan (Sykora) Mitcho and have three children: Gray, Mary Wynn and Hayes.

I strongly believe that great work and great brands are born when culture, sound strategy and timely execution meet.

CMO

I’m always grateful for opportunities to break down barriers and help people understand each other.

I’m a storyteller interested in compelling people to build sincere connections with each other and with their own selves. I’ve often found myself serving as a bridge between two cultures. Whether bringing together engineering teams and media agencies at Google or building the connective infrastructure between sales and operations teams at The Honest Company, I’m always grateful for chances to break down barriers and help people understand each other. I also love building and leading teams, something I’ve been fortunate to do as a producer of feature films, television shows and branded entertainment. I'm also an Eagle Scout with a deep affection for the outdoors but a terribly underdeveloped wilderness survival skillset (I should have paid more attention).

I believe in win-win scenarios between patients and the Managed Care Industry.

Fab Headshot BW.png

Successful delivery of healthcare is not a zero-sum game. I believe in win-win scenarios between patients and the Managed Care Industry.

For the past 20 years I’ve provided value-based healthcare solutions for physicians and health plans that emphasize both the clinical benefit for the patient and the economic benefit for the payer. I’ve established contracts that create affordable access to therapies for patients and shift treatment paradigms for both the clinician and the health plan.

I live in San Diego with my beautiful wife, Lindsay. We spend our days hiking or at the beach, as most San Diegans do.     

We live in an increasingly finite world, but that only makes our mission to provide the best, most affordable healthcare more important.

Director of Marketing Operations

My life’s aspiration has been to provide individuals with the opportunity to share their stories.

My life’s aspiration has been to provide individuals with the opportunity to share their stories, their lived experiences, and their perspectives with the world.  As we each find our voice and share our narrative, together, we forge a greater sense of understanding and compassion.  Gemelli’s patient-centered approach to healing truly demonstrates a mindful observance of the experiences and voices of the individuals that it seeks to treat, and I could not be more honored to take part in this shared journey towards greater awareness, empathy, and well-being.

Along with my work at Gemelli, I am the co-owner of Fanbase Press, an Eisner Award-nominated publishing company that seeks to produce new and distinctive works that give voice to the themes, ideals, and people that make “geekdom” so exceptional.

Director of Customer Service

Through all of life’s ups and downs, I’ve learned that listening and being there is one of the great things that you can do for someone.

Through all of life’s ups and downs, I’ve learned that listening and being there is one of the great things that you can do for someone. The briefest of interactions can have such an enormous impact on someone, so I try to make the most out of every one that I have. 
 
In today’s day and age, there are multiple options for everything that you do, and I truly believe that a great customer experience makes your product stand out above the rest. I have spent my career working directly with customers and clients, whether face to face or over the telephone, and know how important it is for both parties to leave the interaction feeling like it was worth it.
 
The frustration of looking for an answer to a medical issue can be extremely upsetting, especially the longer it drags on.  Through personal experience with either myself or caring for the ones closest to me, I know how important it is to find the answer to what is ailing you. With Gemelli, we are able to help patients get the answer they have been searching for.

I appreciate and understand the important role I play in connecting clinicians and patients with novel diagnostic technology that can lead to more informed treatment options and improved patient outcomes.

Being an effective industry consultant to my physician partners means introducing them to innovative technology that broadens patient care options and streamlines business practices.

Business Development Manager

One of my primary motivators is the ability to help others. 

Tina Headshots.jpg

Since a very young age, I have been fascinated by health and medicine. Growing up in a family with multiple chronic illnesses (including myself), I firsthand experienced the enormous impact that medical innovation can have on a patient’s quality of life. Because of this, one of my primary motivators is the ability to help others. 

 

I recently graduated from Duke University with degrees in Biology (B.S.), Markets & Management, and Global Health. While there, I directed a student-led committee that fundraised for the Duke Children’s Hospital by partnering with local businesses. Additionally, I did research on the microbiome as part of an independent study program. Part of my work involved co-drafting a literature review about gut-derived serotonin and its proposed link with obesity, type 2 diabetes, and depression. I also worked for AmeriCorps as an outreach associate for the SFSP (“national summer meals”) program.

 

What I love about working at Gemelli is that I am able to combine my passions for health and helping others. When not working, I enjoy acting, spending time outdoors, and traveling.

Paige Betts

Brand Marketing Manager

I'm excited to apply my diverse experiences to advancing the mission of building a global family of healthy individuals. 

Paige Headshot B&W.jpg

I bring an eclectic background in marketing, education and project management to Gemelli.  My passion for diverse approaches to health and healing, especially related to children, led me to study Biology at Keene State College. An equal love for storytelling brought me to the world of film production, where I honed in my collaboration and project management skills as I assembled teams, managed budgets, and oversaw the production of short films, commercials and music videos.

 

During a complementary tenure in hospitality management at the renowned New York City restaurant, Fish, I helped oversee the end-to-end customer experience as well as the brand's social media marketing. Throughout my career, I've  maintained a connection to children's health by teaching art - usually ballet and theater - to kids in programs across the country. I'm excited to apply my diverse experiences to advancing Gemelli's mission of building a global family of healthy individuals.

I learned early in life that my greatest joy was to deliver positive experiences to as many people as possible.

 

For many years, I worked in the film and television industry to spread those stories as a Producer and Director. However, I found that I was still searching for a way to deliver a bigger, more positive impact - an impact that would help people daily.

 

Ever since, I’ve focused my energy on building products and attaching myself to brands that deliver a greater impact. 

 

At Gemelli, I’m surrounded by like-minded people who share a similar passion. Through Gemelli's series of innovation, we have the opportunity to bring real change to millions of people around the world.
