If you're looking for a Mighty Mouth, look no further.
In an attempt to recover from two decades working in network news, Casey Quinlan decided to put her storytelling skills to work on behalf of business clients rather than assignment editors. Her own story includes navigating the healthcare system as an advocate for her parents, and then on her own behalf when she got cancer for Christmas in 2007. She wrote "Cancer for Christmas: Making the Most of a Daunting Gift" as a call to action for patients to become full participants in their health, and health care, and is one of the Disruptive Women in Health Care.
She even talked her way out of police custody in Saudi Arabia. Yes, she's that good.
