For more than 25 years Wendy Newman has been a leader in creating innovative pathways for healthcare businesses and non-profits.
Today, as Senior Vice President of Marketing for AMN Healthcare, Wendy is responsible for the corporate marketing and communications strategy. Joining the company in 2000, her vision led to the creation of the company’s award-winning marketing department that pioneered the healthcare staffing industry’s online marketing efforts, a comprehensive brand strategy and brand refresh, and now the firm’s leading-edge digital strategy initiative.
Women’s health has also been an important part of Wendy’s life. She began her career at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, leading the implementation of their cancer prevention and detection programs. Later, she held positions at Women First Healthcare, Inc., and at Scripps Health, prior to joining AMN.
Her community involvement includes Vice Chairman of the Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego, and she has served on the board of directors of the American Melanoma Foundation and the National Association for Women’s Health, and the advisory board of the Scripps Breast Care Center. Her career with AMN Healthcare along with her passion for healthcare, particularly women’s health, and community service, has allowed her to contribute both locally and nationally on these issues.
