Who I Am

WHO I AM

I have lived in Oldham County for over twenty years with my husband Gordon and our three rescue dogs: Maddie, Bear and Ruby.

 

I grew up in a middle-class family in New Jersey, and spent my summers working on a local farm, picking blueberries alongside migrant farmworkers. My family moved to Kentucky for my father’s job when I was a junior in high school. I graduated from Oldham County High School, and then went on to attend the University of Louisville with degrees in art and mathematics.  After college, I married and followed my husband to Indiana where he was attending graduate school, but always knew I would come back to Kentucky.   

 

My actuarial career began in Indianapolis with a life insurance company, but I eventually settled into health insurance with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Indiana, which grew into Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield. I spent 26 years in various positions at Anthem, and eventually became Senior Vice President, Chief Actuary & Chief Risk Officer. In that role, I oversaw actuarial activities in all of Anthem’s markets across the United States, with employees in over 25 states.

 

But there is more to me than business. I have a passion for helping children, and have been active in Big Brothers Big Sisters since 1990. Over the years, I have mentored three Little Sisters, served on the Oldham County Advisory Council, and am currently the Vice Chair of the Board of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Kentuckiana. In fact, I remain active in the life of my most recent Little Sister, who is now 27 years old.
