Part lawyer, part clinician, long time Washington-insider, Gwen is a seasoned thought leader and creative magnet who brings decades of expertise to the discussion with one aim in mind: ensuring patients are heard and their input is valued.
A storyteller at heart, Gwen helps biopharma companies and advocates tell a better story — one that captures the essence of what it means to improve or save a life.

Gwen brings a unique perspective to the advocacy relations team from her career-long accomplishments in public policy and regulatory affairs. She is committed to finding ways to elevate the patient's voice in public policy and bringing energy and respect to the patient's experience in all that Bayer does for patients.
Gwen is a consummate professional, with a great mix of skills to execute on many different fronts. She moves easily from one area of expertise to another, be it writing, health policy or strategic planning. It was a great pleasure working with Gwen. When she gets a goal in her sights, she rarely misses. Above all else, her passion for the important things in life is extremely contagious.
