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 clearly and confidently deliver that information 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 assists clients in analyzing what their audiences need and want to hear – and what they are trying to achieve as speakers. Cindy works with executives to develop persuasive messages on complex and controversial issues, and prepares them to deliver their messages conversationally while confidently handling the 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 Consumer Healthcare Products Association 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.
