About the Presenters:


David G. O’Neil, Founder, Story Trust


David helps families, businesses, and organizations tell their remarkable stories in ways that create a lasting legacy. After missing the op­portunity to document his parents’ histories, David started Story Trust to help families honor their loved ones by recording and preserving their life stories—as memoir books, oral-history recordings, and documentary videos. Story Trust offers a range of writing, editing, and audio/video services to family businesses that preserve a company’s history, celebrate its milestones and accomplishments, and honor its leaders. Story Trust business histories are ideal for anniversary or retirement celebrations, marketing, and investor relations.


David has been a high-school English teacher, book editor, and publishing executive. He holds a BA in economics from American University and a master’s degree in theology from Harvard University. A frequent speaker on the topic of personal history, David has been quoted in The New York Times, The Christian Science Monitor, Kiplinger’s Retirement Report, and Reuters on the value of personal legacies. 



Dr Christopher Sidford M.D., CEO and Founder, Black Bag


Highly regarded by peers and patients alike, Dr. Christopher Sidford is a board-certified physician in Emergency Medicine with over twenty years’ experience at leading medical institutions. Before founding Black Bag, he was an attending physician with the world renowned Lahey Clinic. He started his career at Boston City Hospital, where he graduated from the hospital’s "knife and gun club,” the residency program for emergency physicians.


A U.S. Navy officer, Dr. Sidford served as faculty member of the Emergency Medicine Residency training program in San Diego before traveling overseas. The Mojave Desert and the Arctic Circle were just some of the locations that challenged Dr. Sidford to teach and practice emergency medicine in remote and difficult conditions. Later, he helped to open a nuclear, chemical, and biological-proof hospital on the island of Sicily. Upon returning to the United States, he joined the faculty at Brown University, where he taught emergency medicine and served as at- tending physician at Rhode Island Hospital and Hasbro Children’s Hospital.


Joseph Kolchinsky, Founder and Managing Director, OneVision


Joseph Is the founder and Managing Director of OneVision, the fast-growing company redefining high-level service in management of personal technology, smart homes, and now personal health. The Boston-based team of service professionals and knowledge experts provide a members-only service to modern families wherever they are and whenever they need it.


Joey founded OneVision in 2008 after realizing he could combine his curiosity with technology and passion for crafting an excellent service experience. In 2010 the company expanded its responsibilities beyond personal technology management to also include implementation of smart home systems.  


With the recent addition of master electricians to their staff, the OneVision Technology division can now own the entire technology experience. This may encompass everything from managing the day-to-day service of your personal technology needs to designing and creating the ultimate smart home experience. In 2013 OneVision formally launched its Health division, which features a team of health professionals focused exclusively on our members’ health needs. They manage each member’s health proactively, with great attention to detail and a high sense of urgency.


Jennifer Kolchinsky, MSN, ANP-BC, Managing Director, OneVision Health


Jennifer is Managing Director of OneVision Health and began her professional career as a neuroscience nurse at Massachusetts General Hospital, providing bedside care to patients recovering from an injury to or illness of the brain or spine. Her love of these patients and interest in the complexity of their medical challenges led her to become a neuroscience intensive care nurse at Mass General, caring for patients in critical condition.


While working as an ICU nurse, Jennifer obtained an M.S. in nursing with a specialty focus in adult primary care from Simmons College (where she also earned a B.S. in nursing). She then became a nurse practitioner and first assistant in the operating room for a neurosurgical practice at Southcoast Neurosurgery.  As a bedside nurse and clinician, Jennifer saw first-hand the need for a health management service that helps patients navigate our fragmented healthcare system. The experience led her to found EverGen (now OneVision Health) in 2013.  


Jennifer is an active member in the community. In partnership with the Boys and Girls Club of Boston, she initiated Building Bridges in Nursing, which allows high school students to explore nursing programs at area colleges and observe professional nurses in their roles. She also holds two committee roles within the Boys and Girls Club of Boston, is on the board of overseers at Boston Children's Museum, and is a board member of the College Club of Boston.
