About our Speakers:

Emily Wamplfer

Since January 2019, Emily Wampfler has served as the interim Senior Administrator for the Mayo Clinic Platform. In this role she is the administrative partner for both the president and chief medical officer for Mayo Clinic Platform. She is responsible for coordinating cross-functional teams to advancing the platform and the associated businesses, ventures and relationships.

Additionally, Emily holds the role of Senior Director within the Corporate Development division of the Department of Business Development. Within the Department of Business Development, she has served a variety of roles including evaluating business opportunities ranging from partnerships to acquisitions that are of strategic importance to the institution.

Previous to joining the Department of Business Development, she was a research laboratory technologist studying the properties of the beta-amyloid protein involved in Alzheimer's disease. That background has led to her involvement in several partnerships related to the area of genomics and personalized medicine. She is currently working toward her Master of Business Administration degree from the Carlson School of Management.

Her team will create a clear and cohesive digital strategy with support from Mayo leaders and staff, develop and implement a comprehensive digital business plan, and move Mayo Clinic toward a set of digital standards that provide a seamless digital experience aligned with our culture and values.

Ms. Khan was the senior vice president of Consumer Digital at UnitedHealthcare, where she directed enterprise-level digital strategy. She led a team responsible for designing and building digital solutions for providers, employers and members across UnitedHealthcare’s commercial, Medicare and Medicaid businesses. Her application of artificial intelligence focused on predictive experiences and personalization through machine learning.

With more than 20 years of experience in retail and ecommerce, Ms. Khan previously was global vice president of Product at Digital River Inc., a provider of ecommerce, payments and marketing services. She also was director of and director of Best Buy’s direct-to-business channel. She began her career at Target Corporation.
A Minnesota native, Ms. Khan is passionate about travel and learning new things, online and offline. She shared with us that her first retail job was at Neiman Marcus in downtown Minneapolis, where her primary customer base was international women who were “in Minnesota because of Mayo.”
