In her current role as Americas Head of Digital Health Partnerships for Bayer, Priscilla applies her passion for helping people live happier, healthier lives to identifying, establishing and growing digital health partnerships with startups, entrepreneurs, VCs and the innovation ecosystem at-large. Her passion and contributions to Digital Health were recently recognized by CB Insights, who named Priscilla one of “15 Smart People in Healthcare” (Nov 2018). In addition to helping Bayer Consumer and Pharmaceutical Health divisions deliver new products, solutions and experiences to the patient/consumer, Priscilla is dedicated to the development of team members and colleagues. She joined Bayer in 2014 and quickly earned increasing responsibility in the organization’s Innovation initiatives. Prior to Bayer, she spent 10 years managing the digital projects and strategies of several Marketing Agencies’ clients, where her focus was on customer centricity and delighting people with usable, engaging and beautiful digital experiences.
Priscilla’s appreciation for experience and penchant for the visual stems from her Master of Arts in Art History, earned at Richmond American University in London (2003) and Bachelor of Arts in History from the University of California at Santa Barbara (2000). Through her personal and professional experiences—as an educator, parent, innovator, woman, strategist, life-long student—Priscilla enables opportunities to exchange ideas, (re)imagine products and technologies, and inspire employees and partners to innovate, both in the office and without. Every day. She practices what she preaches at home, cooking, reading, pining away for the last season of Game of Thrones and raising her three children, CJ (13), Rory (8) and Molly (6) with her Husband, John Leuch.
