How I can help you

Hello! I volunteer with SCORE because I have had a great career in the corporate world and am now a small-business owner. I worked for UnitedHealthcare as an executive for 20 of my 25 years with them. My focus was in Medicaid Health Plan management, operations and regulatory requirements. My last 5 years were as a COO for their Arizona Medicaid Health Plan, where I mentored many prospective leaders. Now I own a bed and breakfast business in the Verde Valley.
