Our Team

Compass Healthcare Marketers® (Compass) is a collective of pioneering, insightful, and spirited individuals. Together we have extensive healthcare marketing experience and the passion to create ideas that make a difference in people's lives.

At different points in each of our lives, we have been either a patient or a caregiver—so we know what it’s like. We are motivated by these experiences and by the courage and commitment of patients—they drive our passion.


Our mission is to positively impact the life of every engaged patient.
