Marketing By Design was created to offer a range of strategic marketing, communications and public relations services. Laura Walsh has worked with a wide range of business types. However, the majority of her work has been with medical group practices, hospitals, and other allied health professionals in many different markets across the country.

Laura works closely with clients to understand their business philosophies and marketing goals, their corporate cultures, and the internal and external audiences they serve. Ultimately, her goal is to help each client's business grow and prosper. 


She sees her role as a resource to either supplement a client's internal capabilities or to provide the expertise or manpower the organization may not have in-house.
