Motivated by her parents’ struggle with weight loss, Erica Jain set out to create a way for dietitians, health coaches and nutritionists to provide affordable, top-tier care to people like her parents — anywhere in the world. The result is Healthie, an online platform that connects health professionals with their clients and helps foster the kinds of relationships that improve outcomes and change lives. Erica and her team are literally making the world a healthier place.
During a recent road trip to play the Knicks in NYC, I sat down with Erica for the latest episode of Founder Fridays to learn more about Healthie and how she’s built a successful, growing business. Erica talks about using technology to impact as many people in need as possible as well as the importance of embracing chaos and building a great team.
Erica is a friend and classmate of mine from Duke and it has been really exciting to see her transform vision into reality. It was great catching up with her and experiencing Healthie in action.
