About Me

I am a healthcare marketing pro with experience leading initiatives that define new segments, drive brand awareness, and create commercial demand. My consulting engagements help health tech, medical device, and life sciences companies develop breakthrough sales and marketing communication.

Please contact me to discuss collaborating on any sales and marketing projects in the healthcare field!

“Improve care.” “Bend the cost curve.” “Increase efficiency.” These value propositions are pervasive throughout the healthcare industry.  I started HIT Marketing Partners to help health tech, medical device, and life sciences companies break through the noise and drive meaningful engagement with decision makers by more effectively articulating the impact of their solutions. 

HIT Marketing Partners is not an agency.

We have been in your shoes, responsible for increasing mindshare, generating high-quality leads, and building a thriving sales pipeline. We bring a practical perspective to your communication strategy that promotes connecting your key messages to your target audiences’ goals and objectives. We help organizations create their sales and marketing playbook, and produce content that more clearly conveys their unique differentiators. We offer flexible consulting engagements that can range from ad-hoc projects to dedicating time to your organization every week. We have no overhead so you only pay for our time.
