Through her thought leadership work she has helped establish authority for hospital consultants and suppliers in the marketplace, garnering media coverage in leading industry publications such as Modern Healthcare, HealthLeaders, hfm and Becker’s Hospital Review, and securing editorial opportunities with leading industry influencers and websites.
Prior to joining Lovell, Prichard worked at two global public relations agencies: Rogers & Cowan and Weber Shandwick.
