President & Co-Founder
Hey I'm Alok, also known as Dr. K, and I'm President and co-founder of Healthy Gamer. My personal mental health experiences and gaming addiction nearly forced me to drop out of college; however, having overcome these hurdles to become faculty at Harvard Medical School, I've now dedicated my time to creating Healthy Gamer in order to deliver mental health services to help the internet generation take control of their IRL. I stream over at healthygamer_gg on Twitch.
CEO & Co-Founder
Hi! I’m a startup veteran with a track record of building high-growth media companies and high-impact social enterprises. My specialties include working with niche audiences, emerging digital trends, and digital health. I’m passionate about creating healthcare solutions that put people first. I’m so lucky to lead an incredible team on a mission to redefine mental health.
Hey there! I work on product planning and execution for a lot of projects going on at Healthy Gamer, including managing the engineering design and dev teams. I got involved with Healthy Gamer after recovering from my own bout with gaming addiction (read as: I slid into Alok’s reddit DMs), but really appreciate working somewhere that I feel is doing something impactful. In my free time, I really enjoy playing (MMO)RPGs and traveling for food :)
Director of Coaching Services
Hi! I started with HG as a coach in November 2019, coming from a background of engineering and biomedical research. Now, as the Director of Coaching Services, I oversee operational activities, such as platform and curriculum development, service delivery, policy revision, and new product launches. I advocate for our coaches and clients across the company with the goal of making our services more impactful and accessible. I also want to acknowledge my senior cat, KitCat, who is an S-tier WFH office assistant.
Director of Growth
I’m Ryan. I am a producer and filmmaker from Frisco, TX. I work for HG as the Director of Growth and work on all content and marketing projects across the board. I have a background in esports, working on productions, partnerships, and marketing with the Overwatch League, PUBG, WoW, Fortnite World Cup, CoD League, and many other orgs and games. In my spare time I am a professional GM/DM, write music, and make bomb tacos. twitter.com/ryvivify
Hi! I made the AOE emote for the stream, and the rest is history. You can catch me running the pilot programs, facilitating partnerships, curating resources, and doing a little bit of everything. My background is in healthcare/pharmacy and I love helping things thrive - underserved communities, novel ideas, growing plants. My favorite form of meditation is manga.
I’m Kabir, Community Manager at HG. My role includes developing our discord and reddit communities to create an environment where people can come for growth, connection and support. Working at HG has been super fulfilling, and I am grateful for being exposed to such valuable and diverse perspectives that have allowed me to grow as a person.
I’m Healthy Gamer’s Igor, a small strange man that helps the Doctor experiment on the monster he’s created. I manage Healthy Gamer's research programs. I have a background in medical outcomes research. I am very passionate about finding innovative ways to promote health and science literacy and am very happy to be working to improve our generation's understanding of mental health and wellness.
Hi, I’m Josmary! I’m a grad student who’s passionate about helping people, and the Communications Manager at HG. I had just started my meditation practice when I first came across HG, and it felt like the stars aligned. I’m grateful I get to work around such talented people at a place that’s making a positive impact. I love all things creativity, tech, and anime.
Customer Service Manager
Hi, I’m Renata! I focus on fulfilling requests for all our clients and coaches, while strategizing ways to enhance our performance. I also coordinate and manage incoming communications. I value working for a company that’s creating a positive impact + awareness for mental health. I thrive on being part of a movement that encourages a healthy lifestyle. I’m passionate about:
Petting animals, traveling, shooting COD zombies, binging crime docs, food and fitness.
Coach Scheduling Administrator
Hi, my name is Dragon (no, it's not my gamer tag). I've been with HG since February of 2020 and got involved after going on a whim to invite Dr. K to speak at an event I hosted for Boston University's Gaming Club (Go Terriers!). I do a bunch of things for HG, but am mainly involved in the hiring process for new coaches. I have two cats, Bilbao and Cordoba, my top personal achievements are that I can squat 275, bench 175, and my vertical is 2 inches (not actually...). I’m also currently studying counseling in hopes of becoming a mental health wiz like Dr. K one day.
Hi everyone! I’m the Frontend Dev at at HG and I mainly work on the coaching platform. With the help of the other devs and our super talented designer, we pushed out Dr. K’s Guide to Mental Health, the meditation index, and a ton of other features scattered throughout the platform. I’ve been here for a little over a year now and I’m really excited to release more awesome stuff! Before HG, I used to make websites for large alcohol brands such as Ciroc, Johnnie Walker, and Smirnoff. In my spare time I like to game, lift, listen to music (my library is like that meme where you put all your songs on shuffle), cooking, and make amateur content.
Human Resource Administrator
Hi, my name is Syaidah (pronounced Sigh-ee-duh). I am the HR administrator. Some of the areas I cover are to help recruit and onboard new hires, help to explain policies and procedures, explain benefits and champion employee and coach engagement for Healthy Gamer. I love music, all things fiber related, reading, traveling and making memories with my family. I enjoy working for a company that has a focus on improving mental health and promotes a work/life balance.
Senior Web Designer
Hey, I'm Tristan, Senior Web Designer at Healthy Gamer where I work on the UI and UX of our marketing site and coaching platform. Working at Healthy Gamer combines all the things I love — design, video games and mental health. I'm happy to be apart of a passionate team where we all share the same purpose of helping others and improving the mental health of our generation. After work you can find me playing Overwatch with my Discord group, at the dog park with my pup, exploring Austin, or becoming one with my couch.
