I work primarily with health care clients: independent specialty practices/organizations (orthopedic, gastroenterology, vein care, blood center), community and critical access hospitals, and health care IT leaders. I worked 12 years as a reporter at the Rockford Register Star, where I covered local, entertainment and feature news, and specialized in the health care beat for nearly five years. I worked nearly three years in communications for an addiction/mental health treatment facility before joining Chartwell.
