Cindy has built a reputation as a leading healthcare communications consultant by working with top executives at some of the world’s largest companies. Her strength is helping companies translate complex scientific and health economics information into interesting and relevant messages – and then coaching executives to deliver that information clearly and confidently in the face of objections.
Cindy’s approach to communication training is rooted in the belief that everyone learns differently and has unique talents to bring to their conversations and presentations. Before she helps them communicate, she draws from them what they’re trying to achieve as speakers and analyzes what their audiences need and want to hear. Cindy works with executives to focus their thinking and transform their content into persuasive messages. She then prepares them to deliver their messages conversationally while confidently handling their audience’s toughest objections.
Cindy began turning complicated information into clear, engaging stories as a broadcast reporter in the United States and Europe. Her reporting jobs have ranged from medical reporter for the CBS affiliate in Washington, DC, to correspondent for CBS radio in Paris, where she covered business, culture, and breaking news. Cindy serves on the Board of Directors for the Washington DC History Center and is on the Advisory Council of World Vision's Strong Women, Strong World. She holds a master’s degree in international relations from Boston University in Paris and a bachelor’s degree in communications from Marywood University.
Cindy supports World Vision, one of the world’s largest NGOs, which works to overcome poverty and injustice across the globe. She has seen firsthand the work World Vision does with refugees and poverty-stricken communities – and has helped the organization improve its communications with donors, media, and the people it serves. When she is not busy working or volunteering, Cindy enjoys working out, discovering new worlds through travel, and collecting art from unknown artists.
