As someone who lived with a sleep disorder for nearly a decade before its eventual diagnosis and treatment, Will has a passion for helping others to become aware of and better their health. This passion has driven Will to pursue a career developing technology that accelerates diagnosis and improves outcomes for those with chronic conditions. Having witnessed first-hand the impact of healthy sleep, Will regards sleep hygiene highly. His healthy sleep habits start with exercising and maintaining a consistent schedule and are followed by night-time relaxation techniques that include trading the cell phone or laptop for meditative breathing exercises, a warm bath, and a fiction book.
In addition to his role with the AAHS, Will is an active member of the AASM and has an extensive history of volunteer and advocacy work with patient-centered nonprofits, including the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and the Rare Genomics Institute. Will believes that the individuals and organizations that comprise the Sleep Community have unique perspectives and contributions that can come together to improve the lives of all patients with sleep disorders. He is excited to work with the AAHS towards achieving this goal.
Will currently lives and works in the San Francisco Bay Area, where he works as a Product Manager for Somnoware, a software company focused on healthcare interoperability for patients and providers within the sleep and respiratory domains. He holds Biomedical Engineering and MBA degrees from Washington University in St. Louis.
