ABOUT - Rebecca
Rebecca has been working in the medical field for more than six years.
Always fascinated by biology and science she started as an in-office assistant.
She was selected by her graduate school professors for placement into three separate companies in highly competitive jobs. She has held positions at several large medical groups where she was quickly elevated to higher positions well ahead of schedule. As the clinical coordinator for one of the largest specialty groups on the west coast, she tuned the skills she will be using in her position as Keen's chief clinical and governmental compliance officer.

ABOUT - Dr. Allen Lu, MD, Professor, Chief of Surgery (U.C.L.A.)
Dr. Lu is a renowned surgeon with his own sports institute in Orange County CA.
Early in his career, he had to choose between technology and medicine. He chose medicine but it was close. He has lived at the intersection of the two with numerous inventions in the space including surgical tools, devices, and implants, as well as developing leading-edge imaging solutions that were acquired privately.
Dr. Lu was intrigued that a simple medical device such as ICF™ could disrupt a well-established industry like Fertility. He found it interesting that we plan to sell our devices at an ultra-low price compared to the alternatives and he has agreed to join us and provide his expertise in getting to market.

ABOUT - RJ
RJ has had a very successful career with some of the biggest employers in the world. He devised and implemented standard operating procedures at 20,000+ locations and was known as the go-to person if you needed the impossible done. He saved one employer over a hundred billion dollars by inventing a better way to get the work done. Despite that, he felt that he not really contributed all that much to the world or made a very big difference outside of his small pond.
Embarking on his third career he set out to make a difference this time. A lifelong inventor and tinkerer RJ founded Keen Devices Inc to find simple solutions to common problems. When asked to look into Assisted Reproductive Technology he found it a sufficiently interesting and sufficiently difficult problem to spend significant time on. He found a better way and ENI™ was born.
