Key Takeaways

  • The healthcare industry was not Cori’s first choice; however, she was living in Hoboken, NJ when 9/11 occurred. She saw the best and worst of NYC but saw firsthand how important healthcare is.
  • In a position that required a lot of crisis communication, she realized the intensity of crisis communications.
  • To stand out at one of the largest medical meetings, they hired a seamstress to make plush antibodies. They took the antibodies and took pictures with the plush toys around Chicago in different popular spots.
  • Scenario planning or constant overthinking situations can be bad for your personal health but great for your career. Clients love a professional that can think through a situation and all its possible outcomes.
  • Look for opportunities in the unexpected. A situation that feels frustrating may be a blessing in disguise.
