After K-State, I moved to Atlanta, GA and joined Accenture, a global management consulting firm, where I spent six years as a consultant in the Health & Public Service practice. I worked mostly with National and Regional Payer (Health Insurance) clients and have focused mostly on managed care process design, program implementation, change management, communications, and training initiatives. I was able to use my Leadership Studies skills to not only “manage” but to also effectively lead my clients to realize their potential gains and opportunities. What helped me the most in my career was the invaluable experiences I gained from being a part of the Leadership Studies Program (i.e. Class Leader, Leadership Coordinator, Leadership Challenge Leader/ Participant). Since November 2011, I have transitioned my career over to the client-side, and have taken a position with Coventry Health Care as their Senior Project Consultant. Even though I traveled every week for work when I was with Accenture, I still enjoy traveling and exploring new places, so most of my free time is spent on the road. My favorite places so far have been Paris and Italy. Next up on my to do list: to make a trip back to Manhattan so I can visit the new Leadership Studies Building and see all the beloved familiar faces from Leadership Studies! Miss you all!
