Ame Wadler

Managing Director, Health

Ame has combined a passion for health and an excitement for engaging with stakeholders where they live, work and play to help inform communities about their options in every aspect of health. Her experience in marketing communications and issues management has been applied to creating awareness and education in virtually every therapeutic area and has helped to turn numerous Rx and OTC medicines into household names. Ame understands the complicated healthcare system and knows how to navigate its nuances to enhance reputation for providers and associations, drive support for health advocacy NGOs and differentiate payments services to ensure each meets its business and reputational objectives. At the heart of it all is her passion for simplifying the science and language of health to make it accessible to all. A cheerleader for health and those that innovate in this space, Ame is also a vocal sideline supporter of youth athletics and can be found most weekends in the bleachers supporting her teenage basketball players, Ryan and Maguire.
