Supervisor at Providence Health and Services

I oversee the insurance verification and prior authorization work for 28 hospitals across 5 states.

WHAT SHE DOES FOR LOVE: I spend all my free time with my amazing husband, beautiful baby boy, and our 2 pups!

HER STYLE: Currently, I'm sporting spit-up on the regular! But generally, I'm always wearing a scarf. It's my go-to piece to pull an outfit together.

HER 2015 GOAL: For years, my career has come first. Now, I'm working on putting my family first -- re-prioritizing. The trick will be to do this without sacrificing my career goals.  My goal is to find a balance between personal and professional objectives.

Be sure to take a peek at the incredible things she shared with us about motherhood -- being a new mom, admiration for her mother and mother-in-law and so much love for her grandmother and sister.

A LADY SHE ADMIRES: I've thought a lot about this and I'm not sure if I can pick just one person. I would have to say it is the woman represented when all of our powers are combined -- the career women, and the stay-at-home moms, and the traveling, adventure-seeking women, it takes all kinds. I have an incredible mix of women in my life who are so graceful and beautiful, finding the joys and hilarity in life, and turning challenges into opportunities. Whether it's an almost-impossible deadline at work, or getting three kids under five years old to swimming lessons in one piece, or turning a torn-up house into a beautifully decorated home, I truly thrive off of the variety of women in my life. And I try to soak up every amazing quality about them, like a sponge in water. I'm inspired by their successes and am driven by their resilience. I truly am blessed to have a great foundation of independent, compassionate, committed, and driven women who support and inspire me daily.
