March 13TH -- UC 312 -- 12-1PM

How does a scientist who only wanted to do research and develop mathematical models end up being a serial entrepreneur? It was an interesting journey, but that's exactly what happened to Dr. Kimberly Brown, CEO, Amethyst Technologies, LLC.
Kimberly started Amethyst Technologies 12 years ago. Amethyst's work includes supporting improved diagnostics and health outcomes for 50,000 HIV/AIDS patients in Kenya, quality improvement for 2,000 facilities in Tanzania that support HIV/AIDS patients, implementing the training program to support FDA compliance for 1,000 scientists at the US Army Medical Research Laboratory, training healthcare workers during the Ebola outbreak in Liberia, and performing assessments of hospitals in Iraq for compliance to international standards.
Amethyst started with one employee and one client in 2007 and now supports five US government agencies, two African governments, and numerous private sector manufacturing and biotechnology companies.
Come join us on March 13 from 12-1PM in the University Center 312 and learn how Kimberly accomplished all of this in such a short period of time.
