The healthcare leadership team.
Healthcare Marketing Strategist
Anne has spent most of her 30+ year career in agencies offering expertise in advertising, marketing, public relations and client services. Healthcare became her focus, spending ten years as the director of marketing and corporate communications for a health system in Indiana. Being on the “client side” gave her a new perspective, which became a great asset after she rejoined the agency side of the business. The love of the business, the creative process and solving problems for clients never gets old for her. She also loves golf and scuba diving…which are best experienced in exotic places!
Healthcare Creative Director
David has helped clients find and express their voice for over 25 years. David’s blend of creative and strategic thinking has provided a unique perspective for a wide variety of clients and industries on both the regional and national level. His dedication to his craft and the creative process has earned many awards over the years along with the countless brands who are telling a more compelling story. As one of the early contributors to the BrandIGNITION™ process, David is a key participant in the discovery phase, creatively turning insights into a compelling and distinctive brand platform.
Noel Rettig, Ed.D.
VP, Organizational Effectiveness
Noel strongly believes that people are an organizational best, and in the end, only differential advantage. She has spent more than four decades working with organizations and their teams in strengthening culture, building high performance teams, strategic planning, and aligning strategy and objectives with vision and mission. She is an experienced facilitator who often jokes her favorite “F” word is “Focus”. She will tell you that Emotional Intelligence is the key to successful leadership and is certified to deliver the Emotional and Social Competency Inventory (ESCI). In addition, she leads Fire & Rain’s BrandIGNITION™, assisting corporations in clearly defining their brand and space in the marketplace. She practices the idea that learning should be a profoundly inspiring and transforming endeavor. She has tracked the mountain gorilla in Uganda, hiked the Himalayas, white water rafted in Nepal and climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro. Each adventure broadens her perspective and brings clarity to what’s really important.

She loves beach vacations, family time, party planning, cheesecake, and her 2 adorable puggles—who get away with everything.
Chief Operations Officer
Amanda has over 10 years of experience coordinating marketing programs, the last 6 of these in the healthcare industry. Her principal responsibilities include project management, coordinating all agency activities relating to healthcare projects and day-to-day client interactions. Amanda loves barrel racing (around them, not in them), team roping (not going to elaborate on that one) and also likes to run, golf and snow ski. She owns horses, dogs, cats and a couple miniature donkeys. It’s no wonder she’s comfortable with the zoo-like environment at Fire & Rain.
