Before We Finish: Mei Ling Doery, Physician Entrepreneur
One of my favourite things about my work is the interesting people I connect and collaborate with on a daily basis at meetings. Now I’m asking these individuals five quick questions, ‘before we finish’ our meetings. This edition: Dr. Mei Ling Doery, a physician entrepreneur, public health expert, co-founder of MixApp and founder of MDMD (among many other things!)
Who is your last text from? What does it say?
Probably you. “OK great”. I was picking you up to go to the airport.
Do you have a mentor?
Heaps. Multiple. Can’t get enough. I consider them mentors: Patricia O’Donnell, Bill Forwood, John Kirby, Sharon Keeling, and the late Lorraine Elliott since I was 14.
Favourite failure? (your own)
Things I did not finish. Back in 2003 I worked on a project with a good friend Lincoln to create a scaleable open source system for schooling. I think it is still with the US Patents Office. We got busy in the meantime.
What podcast do you never miss?
I am a TED talk girl.
What haven’t you achieved yet?
The art of being.
