Director of Health Insurance Reimbursement Strategy and Contract Development
Why do you want to be on the Outpost Natural Foods Board of Directors?
I am committed to the collective success of the Milwaukee community as a whole and in particular, the Bay View community, where I have lived and worked for more than twenty years. I believe that Outpost plays a vital role in each of the neighborhoods in which it thrives, providing an anchor of sustenance for the body and the opportunity for collective fellowship experiences with like-minded neighbors.
What professional skills do you bring to a Board position of a $50 million business?
I have a BS from UW-Madison and a MHS from Cardinal Stritch University. I have served in several positions that have afforded me opportunities for public speaking and much of my work history has been about educating and training various entities about the health insurance industry. I am a highly skilled professional and will focus on Relationship building and Collaboration as a member of the board.
Describe your prior involvement with community organizations and/or cooperatives.
I belong to a local chapter of the American Association of American Women. In addition to that, my wife and I are committed to various organizations, including the BVNA and the Friends of Humboldt Park. For the last twelve years we have organized the Herman Street Food Drive for the Bay View Community Center and have donated more than $15K in food donations. Both my wife and I believe in the power of community and that the power of many is greater than the power of the individual.
