PITTSBURGH, PA--The Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation (SCAF) is proud to announce that Walter Watts has joined its team as Marketing & Communications Associate.
Previously, Walter was a content strategist at VMLY&R's Content Studio, working with brands like Ford and Colgate. After graduating from the College of the Ozarks with a BA in psychology, he has devoted his professional career to emboldening content strategy as the meeting point of data and the human experience.
Walter survived sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) in 2012 at the age of 21. After an idiopathic diagnosis, he dove into self-study to learn everything he could about SCA and was led to SCAF. Since then, Walter has acted as a community ambassador and public speaker for SCAF. His story was also featured in You Can Save A Life on Campus (attached).
Walter currently resides in Kansas City with his cat Defib and a life devoted to volunteerism.
“We are tremendously honored that Walter has joined the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation,” said Mary M. Newman, SCAF President & CEO. “Walter is a long-time volunteer and selfless champion for the cause, and we could not be more excited that he has officially joined our team.”
