Our resident man of mystery with the radio worthy (and moderating worthy) voice Shawn Wade has been our Healthcare Practice Leader for over a decade.

Q: Describe what you do in five words or less.
A: Engage. Consult. Advise. Recommend.
Q: Your dream research project is…
A: Anything that significantly improves access and cost (price) for healthcare in any form (wellness, health, etc.).
Q: The quality you most admire in others is…
Q: If you could be any fictional character, who would you be, and why?
A: Mighty Dog — because that sounds fun.
Q: What do you like to do in your free time?
A: Bike ride, build things, read, and cook.
Q: What’s your current obsession? Tell us about it.
A: Architecture. It is the only way I can feel art and creativity. Through architecture I can actually feel where humans are creative and express themselves through art. It’s tangible and physical; they put things together and pull them apart. It’s through this that I can really understand how people were feeling to build things not for structure alone but for art.
Q: What question are you dying to answer that we haven’t asked?
A: Who are you really?
Q: What’s the answer?
A: I don’t know. I literally try to think about it every day but I haven’t found the answer. As you get older you realize it’s a lot more complex than you originally thought.
