Full bio

Lisa Maki started PokitDok after overcoming a spinal injury discovered while studying Karate. With her mobility compromised, she spent six frustrating months researching and identifying remedial options, through medical experts, her personal networks, trainers, social media and searching the Web. That quest ultimately led Lisa to enroll in a study for experimental treatment; she is now pain free.

With her rich background in technology, Lisa and her co-founder & CTO, Ted Tanner, Jr., created PokitDok to break down the data silos in healthcare through an API platform and bring an interconnected experience to patients. Before starting PokitDok, Lisa co-founded BeliefNetworks with Ted, which applied semantic intelligence and predictive analytics for customers from the Department of Defense to DailyCandy. It was acquired by the health and employee benefits company, Benefitfocus (NASDAQ: BNFT, IPO 2013).

Earlier in her career, while at Microsoft, Lisa was the Director of Program Management for all consumer products, during Bill Gates's tenure. She earned her BA from Stanford University.
