The Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation announces two individuals, Christina Dolan and Michael Robie, have been elected to serve on its Board of Directors. Both have exceptional expertise in consumer and healthcare marketing.

Christina Dolan

Christina Dolan is a 30-year advertising and marketing veteran with experience working on some of the most recognized brands in the world, including The Ford Motor Company, The Walt Disney Company, Universal Parks and Resorts, State Farm Insurance, and Arnold Palmer Enterprises. Over the past several years, her marketing focus has shifted to directing healthcare and population health marketing programs for large healthcare systems, clinical trial organizations, and the senior living industry. Today, as the CEO and Chief Marketer of Brand Hum, a marketing consulting firm located in Orlando, Florida, she helps organizations redefine their marketing programs to deliver inspired results. She holds a BA from Purdue University, where she sits on the advisory board for the LAMB School of Communications. She also holds an MBA from Rollins College’s prestigious Crummer Graduate School of Business.

Christina is passionate about working with mission-driven organizations where she can help make “the world a better place.” She became aware of the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation after the husband of a dear friend and former colleague suffered a sudden cardiac arrest and survived. Since then, she has participated in sudden cardiac awareness events and has become CPR-certified.

Michael Robie

Michael Robie has supported organizations of all sizes with customized marketing plans and branding strategies, having 25 years working in the fast-moving consumer goods industry for Fortune 100 brands including Coors Brewing Company and Bacardi. A graduate of Bentley College and Babson College’s MBA program, Michael has most recently been focused on providing online marketing strategies for consumer goods and service-based businesses as a Certified Digital Marketing Consultant. A local to Massachusetts, Michael has supported multiple causes and has been involved as a volunteer for the American Heart Association, The DJ Henry Dreamfund, and has served as a basketball coach for his town’s special needs basketball program. He lives in Natick, MA with his wife Jody and his two teenage daughters, Jordan and Addison.

Prior to his 30th birthday, Michael suffered a sudden cardiac event while on a cruise ship with his fiancé. Due to newly installed defibrillators on the cruise ship and the lucky occurrence of having expert medical staff a few steps away, Michael is here today. He is excited to support the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation and help raise awareness and understanding so more lives can be saved.

“We are delighted to have Christina and Michael join our Board. In speaking with them, I could not help but be impressed by their enthusiasm and dedication to our mission,” said Henry Jampel, MD, Chair of the Board of Directors, who is a sudden cardiac arrest survivor. “I truly think that with their addition to our already strong team, we will be equipped to take our cause to the next level.”
