Brains Behind It- Mary Ray- MyHealthTeams

Mary Ray is the COO, co-founder and visionary behind the MyHealthTeams’ platform. Her deep understanding of consumers has contributed to her success in growing innovative companies from incubated new ventures at public companies to ‘traditional’ start-ups.

She personally lost a family member to a three-decade battle with multiple sclerosis, has had friends who’ve battled cancer, who won, and lost. She’s seen her colleagues juggle work schedules to be caregivers to spouses, parents or their children facing a chronic condition. Through the experiences of her friends and family, she’s come to empathize with the loneliness they have experienced, while managing life with a chronic illness. This is what drove her and Eric Peacock to co-found MyHealthTeams. Together they are causing a tectonic shift in healthcare from a physician- and pharmaceutical-driven industry, to a consumer-driven one.

Mary is a graduate of the College of William & Mary School of Business and George Mason University. She lives in San Francisco, CA with her husband and son, and is a proud fan of the three-time World Series Champions, the San Francisco Giants.

MyHealthTeams is an independent, venture-capital backed startup based in San Francisco that creates social networks for communities of people facing chronic conditions (everything from Lupus and multiple sclerosis, to autism, breast cancer, and COPD).  MyHealthTeams has set the gold standard for patient engagement with over 1.6MM members across 29 social networks and it has become the fastest growing and most engaging set of social networks for web and mobile apps in healthcare.
