I’m a knowledge expert and thought catalyst in healthcare design with extensive marketing, speaking, writing, and social media skills.

I’m also a strategic marketing and business development consultant.  Contact me if you’d like to find how I can help you navigate the brave new world of social media and content marketing.

As the former Executive Vice President of the nonprofit Center for Health Design, I oversaw the Evidence‑based Design Assessment and Certification (EDAC) credentialing program, supervised strategic marketing for all programs, and participated in new project development.

Prior to working for The Center, I was president of Sara Marberry Communications, providing marketing and communications services to a diverse group of clients in the healthcare design industry.
