“My views on diversity began forming at an early age. As a teenager, I taught children with physical challenges to ride horses. In my college years, I was involved in philanthropic projects related to diseases of the eye and blindness. During graduate school at Columbia University in New York City, I was immersed in a community of learners from all over the globe.
For more than 20 years, I have had the opportunity to work in a variety of analytical roles. It is interesting to see that no matter how my role has been aligned or what Blue Plan I’m working with, we have more things in common than one might realize initially.
In addition to my cultural beliefs, these experiences and many more have led me to feel strongly that we are better as analysts, people, and employees of Horizon BCBSNJ for having diverse perspectives. Our thoughts, decisions and actions are improved by this rich diversity. I am deeply honored to be a part of Horizon BCBSNJ’s Diversity Council.”
