Vik Patel, Treasurer

Why are you passionate about being a part of LINKS_STRONG?

  • I have spent my entire career working in the healthcare space and now work for an organization focused on earlier cancer detection.  Josh has been a great friend for years and watching him battle and defeating cancer was truly inspiring, so when he approached me to be a part of his organization it was a no brainer for me.  On top of that, I am also passionate about playing golf poorly.

What is something people might not know about you?

  • I am pretty much an open book, but people may not know I was born in Montreal, Canada.

Describe your perfect vacation!

  • These days with a young child at home, any vacation where I can sleep in until 9 am sounds glorious.  Throw in some good food, a beach or pool, refreshing cocktails, and no phone and I am sold.

What is your guilty (or not-so-guilty) pleasure?

  • I can survive on tortilla chips and salsa and also love singing as loud as possible in the car when driving.

Vik is currently a Senior Commercial Operations Manager at Exact Sciences in Madison, WI.
