Tim Busche, MBA, and Kelley Smith, RN, MPH, founded Envision Health with the simple idea to combine the science of healthcare marketing with the art of communication resulting in a uniquely positive and impactful marketing and PR consulting firm. Dissatisfied with the negative and ineffective culture of corporate America, they combined their expertise and a vision for a supportive, work-life balanced environment with just $2,000 in cash.

With insights and guidance from former colleagues, academia, early clients and the Michigan SBDC, Envision Health quickly expanded from a boutique firm to a nationally recognized brand. Over the past decade, they’ve earned the National Healthcare Agency of the Year Award from Swaay.Health as well as awards from the National Digital Health Awards and a spot on the State of Michigan’s Top 50 Companies to Watch.

Envision Health’s deep understanding of the healthcare landscape has driven their success, delivering innovative marketing and public relations initiatives for clients across various healthcare sectors. Their commitment extends beyond business, supporting local charities and non-profits in Ann Arbor.
