CEO/President, Connexion Healthcare
CEO/President Susan founded Connexion Healthcare in 1999 based on her commitment to clearly and concisely communicate evidence-based, relevant scientific information to educate healthcare providers, support clinical decision making, and improve patient outcomes. All of her decisions are based on the notion of ultimately furthering patient care while nurturing a culture of scientific discourse among employees.
Susan draws on more than 2 decades of experience to offer invaluable service to her clients. She began her career on the pharmaceutical side of the healthcare industry at Johnson & Johnson then Pfizer, which allows her to instinctively understand client needs. Susan then began her career on the agency side and worked her way to vice president before forming Connexion Healthcare.
In 2010, Susan completed her Master’s degree in Public Health at Drexel University in Philadelphia, where she gained tremendous insight on the healthcare landscape. She continues to foster her passion for knowledge while serving on the prestigious Dean’s Advisory Council at Drexel. Susan’s varied background allows her to partner with clinical experts and clients in a meaningful and effective manner.
Susan’s ability to lead and inspire has received media attention. Her career has been highlighted in various trade journals, including Philadelphia Business Journal and PharmaVoice. Susan is also a repeat interviewee on Executive Leaders Radio.
As a philanthropist, Susan has been active in charity work throughout her life. Because patient care is at the core of Connexion, she formed Connexion Cares™ as a vehicle to support healthcare research and foster patient advocacy. Through this program, a portion of the proceeds from each Connexion project is donated to charities in the areas of oncology and rare disease.
