Catherine Bouthillier, Senior Manager, Healthcare Corporate Partnerships, PracticePoint, WPI

Having a brother who was born prematurely, Catherine saw firsthand the importance of research and innovation on quality of life and outcomes. That exposure, paired with an interest in helping others, set her down the path of pursuing a career as a pediatrician. When her father was diagnosed with progressive supranuclear palsy, she changed her course of study to communication in order to finish earlier to help at home. With that degree she entered corporate America but after many successful but demanding years, she found herself burnt out and sought a more rewarding opportunity. Marrying her love for research with her natural relationship skills, today she is thankful to make a meaningful impact on a daily basis in the medtech industry.
