Healthcare Marketer Living with MS

Canton, GA


My experience spans nearly 20 years as a healthcare marketing professional. My MS diagnosis in 2014 has widened my understanding and helped me see how and why the patient perspective should be leveraged to affect marketing in healthcare, everything from fitness trackers to pharmaceuticals. I am willing to consider any request but I feel my most meaningful contributions would include elements of the following:

- Voice of a career-minded MS patient balancing parenthood while trying not to stumble over the sidewalk crack. I fit the healthcare target demographics - employed (and insured) female, early 40s with young children. Using my unique marketing insight, I can help create compelling messages that resonate with the intended audience.

-My MS workarounds - From fashionable footwear to blow drying my hair to managing the most out of my health plan, hacks healthy people would never imagine.

- Healthcare Marketing Today: From print ads to storytelling. A new art is emerging.
