On a Personal Note...

Over the last 25 years, I have had the pleasure of working with some amazing TPA's! I have held just about every position within a TPA you can think of. When I made it just about as far as I could go (EVP) I found myself just about as unsatisfied as I could be. I guess I'm somewhat of a rare breed--I enjoy every aspect of the business; operations, account management, sales, vendor relations, plan building... I love being in the mix! So in January of 2018, after a lot of prayer and soul-searching, I decided it was time for a new chapter in my life. I decided I no longer wanted to be tied to one TPA and I didn't want to be limited to work for a brokerage firm, but rather have the ability to work with any or all of them! It is my goal to guide self-funded employers in deciding which TPA is right for them, which vendor can meet their specific needs, and help them determine which benefits are right for them--is their culture a good fit for "out of the box" concepts like referenced-based pricing or the free market? I have the hands-on experience and knowledge and look forward to working with self-funded groups, TPAs, Service Providers, brokers, and vendors... Helping them define their success and helping them build an amazing team of partners that are aligned to meet their needs!

I sincerely I hope I have the privilege of working with you and your team!
