Previously she served as director of Communications, overseeing work in media relations and digital communications. Ms. MacIver works closely with PATH’s partner organizations—such as the World Health Organization; Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance; and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation—to raise awareness of health innovations and challenges in developing countries.

Before joining PATH, she served as media relations specialist at Seattle Children’s Hospital, where she produced documentaries on child health issues, developed a weekly “ask the doctor” segment on KING TV, and provided media training to Seattle’s top doctors and health care leaders.
