Sensei names Dr Vishal Patel as director of wellness research
By Megan Whitby 07 Oct 2020
Patel has a Doctor of Medicine, a PhD in Genetics and a certificate in Ayurveda from Gujarat Ayurved University in India
Dr Vishal Patel has recently been appointed as new director of wellness research at Sensei, the new wellbeing brand founded by tech mogul Larry Ellison and world-leading physician and scientist, Dr David Agus.

Patel’s new role will involve building the brand’s knowledge base to create, evaluate and disseminate evidence-led content and programming to guests. He will also be responsible for vetting technology and services to ensure they reflect the most up-to-date standards, supported by empirical evidence.

Patel earned his Doctor of Medicine as well as a Ph.D. in Genetics from Case Western Reserve University, and a certificate in Ayurveda from Gujarat Ayurved University in India.

Prior to joining Sensei, he worked with nationally renowned US healthcare systems, including Geisinger, Baylor Scott & White, and Parkland Hospital, on the design, implementation, and analysis of programmes to improve the health of populations.

Sensei has also announced the appointment of Sandra Foyil to SVP of operations and people operations, making her responsible for all operations and people services for Sensei Wellness.

She brings more than 20 years experience in the wellness and hospitality industries to the role, having previously held the positions of COO and CPO for Mynd, formerly Red Door Spas, overseeing 26 facilities and 1,200 employees.

Foyil also worked at Canyon Ranch for 15 years where she was involved in various expansions of the brand including locations in Las Vegas, Miami Beach and the growth of Canyon Ranch At Sea from one location to 22 locations in just five years.

“Sensei is building a team of the best and brightest minds in the wellbeing space,” said Kevin Kelly, CEO of Sensei.

“We’re very excited about the addition of Sandra and Vishal to the Sensei family, as they bring with them a wealth of knowledge in the fields of health, science and wellbeing that aligns directly with our philosophies.”
