Heather Potter

As a recipient of an implantable device, and with a spouse who relies on the use of a biologic drug, my role as a counselor and educator is founded on a patient perspective. Working with clients in the medical technology industry allows me to use this perspective to provide effective counsel to clients with a shared goal of helping patients live better lives.
