An Interview with Jeff Pfohl, Senior Director of Strategic Solutions
Great companies are made up of great people. Here at Jumo Health, our most valuable resource is our team. We are a collective of medical folk, product people, designers, and storytellers that share a common goal to change health care today. Through our We Are Jumo Health series, we will introduce you to the dedicated people who are the heartbeat of Jumo Health.
This month, we’d like you to meet Jeff Pfohl, who has been at Jumo Health since February 2019. Jeff lives in Warwick, New York.
What led you to Jumo Health?
Rick Scorzetti and I worked together in the past. I saw that he joined a company called Jumo Health and I sent him a congratulations note. He replied back and let me know he is looking for a few good people. It did not take long after that. I met with Sindy, Kevin, Columba and the team and saw the wonderful passionate work Jumo health was doing, especially with kids.
What do you like most about working in health care?
It is not often your work can truly make a difference in someone’s life. We have so many stories here of our collective ability to impact families in a positive way. The story of Damon, a little boy with bone cancer really hit home.
What is the most important thing you’ve learned in the last five years?
As I move on to middle age:) I can’t but help to appreciate a quote by Abraham Lincoln: In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.
Finish this sentence “I am happiest when…”
We live in the country. Our home has large windows in the family room. On Sunday morning my wife Kristi and I get up early, sit in the family room, and simply talk over a hot cup of coffee.
What are some hobbies or interests you have outside of work?
Exercise is great for both my physical and mental health. I enjoy weight training, boxing, and hiking. We tend to enjoy live concerts, all kinds of music (to include cheesy 70s stuff) and many, many family get togethers. I also do quite a bit of volunteer work. Since 2007, I along with some good friends have run a charity to provide Christmas presents for needy kids in Appalachia.
