Simpson Healthcare Executives

Simpson-Angelini is a research scientist by trade, tracing her time in the business back to a Pfizer lab in the 1980s. Early in her career, however, she developed a passion for medical communications — and a penchant for scientific storytelling. In 1998, she founded Simpson Healthcare, which set as its goals the management of therapeutic brands throughout their lifecycles as well as sharing the scientific stories behind medical discoveries and the patients’ lives they help. More recently, the agency pioneered the creation of future health forums, where world experts unite to explore global datasets, shifts, health policies, and patient needs for the coming years. Simpson-Angelini takes an active role in mentoring and coaching women, internally and externally, and in 2016 she was named a Women of Innovation Honoree by the Connecticut Technology Council for her entrepreneurial vision and leadership.
