ABOUT William Aarsheim
Will Aarsheim is Managing Partner of Q Surgical, Northern California’s largest distributor of neurosurgical instruments and products. Will’s career has been focused on neurosurgical equipment distribution since the year 2000. In 2009, after learning of the admirable work of the many neurosurgeons who dedicate their time and resources to helping patients in areas around the world where neurosurgery care is not widely available, Will founded the Circle of Willis Foundation in an effort to support neurosurgeons engaged in bringing top quality neurosurgical care to overextended health care systems and their patients world-wide. In 2011 he helped launch the MissionBRAIN Foundation, the mission of which is closely aligned to his Circle of Willis Foundation, and since that time he has focused his surgical philanthropic efforts solely with MissionBRAIN.
As a neurosurgical products distributor, Will is able to use his industry connections to obtain donations or lowest cost products in support of MissionBRAIN’s overseas missions. In addition, due to his experience in the neurosurgical instrument/product field, he is in a unique position to use his expertise to understand and fill the equipment needs of the hospitals served by MissionBRAIN. Will also serves as MissionBRAIN’s Treasurer.
Will’s philanthropic interests outside the world of neurosurgery include serving on the Board of Legal Aid of Marin, the mission of which is to provide access to the civil justice system to low income, vulnerable and otherwise underserved residents of Marin County.
In his personal life Will resides in Larkspur, California with his wife and two sons. He enjoys kayaking, sailing, and mountain biking and has run over sixty ultra-marathons.
