I am one of the only marketing health care professionals in the country who has broadened the ability to enhance a brand by adding capabilities in Innovation Management and Experience Design. I have had a very satisfying career in health care communications and marketing and over the past 10 years have become very involved in the value a culture of innovation can have in stregthening an organization for long-term viability. I am also known for being an effective NETWEAVER where I enjoy connecting people with various needs, talents, opportunities to others for mutual benefits... I've been with Memorial since 1990. Prior to this position in Indiana I have held similar positions in Alabama and Pennsylvania. I also own my own consultancy called FreakThink where I assist companies with their marketing/experience design needs on a contract basis. Freak refers to the Tom Peters advice of having someone with a completely fresh perspective take a look at your work, your projects, your planning to enhance the diverse lenses for a better outcome. Freak is a term of endearment in my world! I am the mother of one son, Benjamin who is a senior at Purdue University.
