Executive Sponsor, Women LEAD

I am proud and honored to serve as the Executive Sponsor for the Women LEAD Affinity Group at Horizon BCBSNJ. With five sisters, I learned early in life how the advice, backing and support of talented women can empower and prepare you for life’s challenges. I believe the investment Horizon BCBSNJ has made in establishing Affinity Groups points to the commitment to fully engage each employee at Horizon BCBSNJ in driving success today and in the future.

Women LEAD and its activities offer many opportunities to grow and develop as professionals, to contribute to Horizon BCBSNJ’s success above and beyond job responsibilities, and probably most importantly, to help develop strong support networks.

I look forward to participating as a member of the Horizon BCBSNJ community as well as providing the executive sponsorship to help shine the light on the accomplishments and successes of this talented group of employees.
