Andy Mendelson

Vice President, Sales

Andy leads our incredibly passionate, mission-focused business development team who serve diverse clients with health simulation solutions that empower individuals to lead real-life conversations that measurably improve social, emotional, and physical health.
Prior to joining Kognito, Andy served as Vice President of Sales for Kaplan Nursing where he led an institutional team to serve nursing schools with SaaS solutions for integrated benchmark testing and NCLEX preparation programs.  Andy also led teams at Kaplan to develop institutional partnerships with medical schools, physician assistant programs, and pharmacy schools, and served students preparing for college and graduate school entrance exams.   Earlier in his career, and with the inspiration from his daughters while practicing 'baseball math', Andy co-founded a sports-themed educational start-up to develop an innovative math program to encourage kids to strengthen critical math skills by leveraging their passion for baseball.  Officially licensed by Major League Baseball Properties and the MLB Players Association, these math cards engaged students to learn by challenging them to solve "real world" math word problems with cards featuring their favorite MLB Players, MLB Teams, and player statistics.  Andy earned a BBA from the University of Massachusetts, MBA from Rutgers University, and MS in Higher Education from Drexel University.  As a passionate advocate of e-learning, Andy recently returned to the virtual classroom to earn a post-baccalaureate certificate in Neuroscience, Learning, and Online Instruction from Drexel University.
