Heather Trilles

Director, Global Marketing

On her role…

“I love science. And I enjoy translating complex scientific or medical information to make it more accessible. We know that with serious rare diseases, like FCS and FPL, the journey can be long and challenging. My goal is to shepherd understanding to improve the experience of these communities.”

On what it means to be an innovator and an advocate…

“It’s easy in a marketing role to get wrapped up in what’s new or trendy. My goal is to provide quality and value to patients through information. As innovators, and advocates, we are always seeking to truly meet the needs of patients – by listening to, understanding and involving the community.”

On her message for patients…

“We think about you all the time – you are never far from our hearts and minds. And when we think things are tough, we think about the challenges you face, and it reinvigorates us. We are always working for you.”

On Akcea…

“Every company thinks their culture is unique. But at Akcea, all levels of the organization are genuinely invested in aligning around and promoting a positive culture. We all wear many hats, we all contribute and we lift each other up.”
