Health and medical marketing is a unique practice.

how ostler met rose

Would you believe it all started with a lasagna?

After just moving into the neighbourhood and becoming a mother for the first time,  Katie Ostler saw an opportunity to meet the neighbours when she learned that the family two-doors down also just had a baby.

So she whipped up her grandma’s special recipe and knocked on the door to say hello. That’s when Ostler met Rose. Over the years the two neighbours became friends and pillars of support, together navigating the perils of motherhood and antics of raising sons.

But that’s not all they had in common; they shared a love of all things marketing and communications–Tara as a marketing whiz growing health and medical service practices from the ground up, and Katie as a media and communications expert who cut her teeth working for health charities and medical specialists. It was a perfect pairing.

The next step was obvious. Katie and Tara joined forces, along with their roster of hand-picked associates and top-notch specialists to create Ostler & Rose: a one-stop marketing agency for health and medical services.
