Mimi Pappas

"When approaching a communications challenge, I always look for common ground. Where do the objectives of the speaker intersect with the needs of the audience or community? That intersection is where real dialogue and understanding take place – and where we stop talking at one another and start an exchange that changes attitudes and creates partners."

Contact Mimi

Mimi brings nearly 20 years of experience in communications to her work with clients, with particular expertise in working with third-party groups and advocates. She is recognized for her ability to help clients forge and maximize connections with key patient and medical groups and leverage these relationships strategically for mutual benefit.


Whether she’s working with a chief medical officer on the creation of a formal presentation, helping a patient tell her story, or developing a team’s strategic advocacy plan, Mimi’s approach is to first identify the desired qualitative outcomes. This ensures that the work process and product embrace a deep and respectful understanding of the audience, the broader environment, and internal company priorities.


Mimi is a writer and editor at heart and takes great pride in creating crisp, clear editorials that inspire action, and in helping clients develop and nurture community partnerships. Prior to joining 3D Communications, Mimi was the director of communications and outreach at a national medicine trade association. In that capacity, she created and executed national public health education campaigns in English and Spanish alongside medical professional societies, consumer advocates, and government agencies, including the FDA and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Earlier in her career, she exercised her red pen as managing editor for all periodicals and news broadcasts at an international membership association for educators. Mimi holds a bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Pennsylvania.

Special Interests

Mimi believes strongly that we all have a mutual responsibility for one another. Organizations that help veterans or kids and their families, especially as they navigate illness – such as Ronald McDonald House Charities and 3D’s nonprofit Get Stuff Done 4 Kids – are her particular passions. She also supports animal-welfare causes and enjoys the time she spends with her rescue mutt, Henry.
