Current Role: Business Project Manager, Sales and Distribution Work Stream Lead
Before attending the Fuqua School of Business at Duke, I began my career as a health care consultant focused on change management. I accepted a summer associate role at Cigna in 2010 and accepted a full-time position with Cigna following my graduation from Duke.
Choosing Cigna and the HLP as the launching point for my career was an easy choice following my internship experience. My summer associate project at Cigna empowered me to make strategic decisions and work with Senior Leadership to develop a marketing strategy for a key market. I was able to leverage my previous health care experience, work consultatively with peers, and add immediate value to Cigna during my ten-week experience.
As a full-time associate, the HLP has continued to prepare me for an executive role at Cigna. I have had exposure to various functional areas and have occupied several roles that have allowed me to develop new skills and work in multiple locations.
Current Role: VP, Client Services (Operations)
I joined Cigna in 2010 after graduating from Brigham Young University because of the HLP, organizational culture, and strong executive team.
HLP has been critical to my personal and professional development. With HLP colleagues across many cities, I have been able to gain perspective and insight through my peer network. Plus, with all the training, off-site meetings, and personalized development, HLP has shaped and helped me accelerate through my career and organizational change more quickly.
I could not have received comparable experiences anywhere else and I am excited for my next career moves. As I look to the future, I am curious about two areas where I have not yet held a role: Network and Provider and Distribution channels. Either of these divisions will give me an opportunity to continue to challenge myself, contribute to our customers’ well-being, improve patient outcomes, and build Cigna's local market presence.
