Katie Heelis

Few policy areas are as complex as health care. So it’s a good thing Katie’s strong policy background, deep experience in the sector, and talent as an issues manager help clients find their way around. Combining strong relationships with key decision makers and a keen strategic mind, Katie brings a unique lens to our work that health care agencies, not-for-profits, and companies depend on more and more.
