Margie Mathewson

VP of Business Operations

Dr. Mathewson’s career has focused primarily on helping start-ups and small businesses build out robust operations, from internal structures and systems to external partnerships. Prior to joining Ossium, Dr. Mathewson was the 7th team member at Point, a FinTech start-up offering non-traditional options for home equity funding, where she led Business Operations. While there, she drove development of an underwriting process for nontraditional, complicated customers that allowed funding of Point’s initial set of homeowners, including the first to successfully exit the investment. She also communicated complex mathematical concepts to homeowners to educate them on the Point investment model and how their equity sale would work.

Dr. Mathewson also worked as a consultant for McKinsey & Company, where, among other projects, she helped develop a rapid growth strategy for a successful health system, overhauled a sales and supply chain planning process to improve communication and ensure every customer got what they ordered on time, and restructured the international sales team for a major global telecom. Dr. Mathewson completed her PhD at the University of California, San Diego, where she was an NSF Fellow and founded a successful mentorship program for first generation college students in engineering.

I was initially drawn to Ossium by Kevin's vision of changing the way we think about healthcare, and the potential to positively impact so many people. As I got to know the team, my desire to be a part of Ossium only grew! Every day I come to work energized by the passion and knowledge of those around me.

Before joining Ossium, Ms. Gardner established the People team as employee #18 at Turntide Technologies, a cleantech electric motor startup with backing from Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, and Robert Downey Jr. During her tenure, she cemented the People team as the connective tissue for a before-its-time hybrid model of 6 offices and 40% remote staff, and drove 555% headcount growth across the company. At Turntide she rolled out multiple people-focused initiatives including introducing OKRs, creating a recruiting playbook, founding a DEBI (Diversity, Equity, Belonging, & Inclusion) team, and building out the onboarding program Turntide 101. Ms. Gardner also spent 4 years in HR Consulting, working with startups across the nation to implement HR systems and best practices.

Prior to finding her calling in the People space, Ms. Gardner worked in guest operations at San Francisco’s two science museums: The California Academy of Sciences (where she presented public engagement shows underwater as a scuba diver) and the Exploratorium. Ms. Gardner received her BA in Feminist Studies from Stanford University, where she won a national championship as a member of the women’s water polo team and was named to the All-American team all four years. She also spent six months playing professional water polo overseas in Greece.

I love working for a company that consistently sparks passion, cultivates my professional growth, and advances patient care. Each of my teammates plays a vital role and our strength, enthusiasm, and dedication combine in order to improve the business and science as a whole. I am proud and fulfilled to be an Ossie!
