After starting my career as a high school biology teacher in Central Kentucky, I entered into the Employer Group health insurance and wellness industry over 20 years ago. However, I have never felt as if I ever stopped teaching...I just teach a different subject. After 20 years with my former employer (Humana) I joined Grand Rounds - an innovative start-up company in San Francisco. Both organizations were so good to me and I believe in their value, but in August of 2018, I was offered an incredible opportunity to move to Tampa and co-lead a new company called CareValet. This opportunity has allowed me to use all my past skills to lead and develop staff and strategy that is focused on helping our members find the best possible doctor for them and their family, use technology to schedule online appointments, and seek immediate physician advice anytime 24/7 365 days a year within one click in our app or online experience
I have been fortunate enough to work with some of the most prominent organizations in the country including Toyota, RW Baird, UAW Autoworkers, PGA, the Commonwealth of Kentucky in implementing wellness products, clinical programs, behavior change, and cost savings strategies.
