Mrs. Anna Starikovsky Nordvig brings a strong background of health care, finance and entrepreneurship to RAD-AID. Mrs. Nordvig served as a Financial Analyst in Fixed Income Advisory at Goldman Sachs (2004-2007) during which time she focused on advising clients and investing in a wide array of financial assets as well as diligencing various micro and macro loan servicing models in the U.S. and abroad. She was subsequently promoted to Associate in the Global Banking Group in Goldman Sachs Bank USA (2007-2009) where she created international commercial banking business plans and creatively structured & raised over $20 billion in funding for the bank during the financial crisis. In 2009 Mrs. Nordvig was selected as the top 10% of her female Associate class to participate in the Goldman Sachs Women’s Career Strategies Initiative training and leadership program.
Prior to joining Goldman Sachs, Mrs. Nordvig spent two years in General Electric’s Capital Market Services group structuring finance solutions for GE Wind Energy and GE Healthcare after working with a Director at the Export-Import Bank of the United States (2001-2004).
As a graduate of Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business, Mrs. Nordvig has always merged her entrepreneurial spirit with her interest in the humanitarian work. She co-founded the Georgetown chapter of the American Red Cross Blood Drive Club and fundraised for and led a group of ten students to the Ukraine to aid the struggling Jewish community.
After a life-changing skiing accident, Mrs. Nordvig decided to apply her business training to the practice of medicine and is currently attending Columbia University’s School of Physicians & Surgeons in NY to receive her MD. In her New York community, she has studied cancer under a basic science fellowship from the National Institutes of Health and has managed a lifestyle modification program funded by the March of Dimes. Mrs. Nordvig strongly believes in "teaching a [wo]man to fish;" to provide long-term care, health care providers have as much of a responsibility to educate patients as they do to diagnose and heal them.
Together with Dr. Everton, Mrs. Nordvig began building RAD-AID's India Program in 2010. She formed the Asha Jyoti ("Light of Hope" in Hindi and Punjabi) program with PGIMER Chandigarh in northern India to innovate a unique outreach service to underserved women. Asha Jyoti offers an innovative comprehensive program to screen women for osteoporosis, breast cancer and cervical cancer in a specially designed mobile van manufactured by Philips HealthCare. This program was offically announced at the Champions of Action Session of the Clinton Global Initiative in 2012. This public-private partnership to offer new health care solutions is a cornerstone of RAD-AID's strategy to integrate economic development, health care advancement, and medical technology.
