Raise your hand if you loved shopping for “back to school” when you were a kid?  I LOVED it!  Not so much the going back to school part, but I loved planning and organizing to start a new year.  I kind of get that feeling when I go to a conference and meet new people and get to learn new ways to do things.  This month, many of us were in California for the BenefitPRO Broker Expo and the show didn’t disappoint.  I’m thrilled to say that a new Broker of the Year was crowned (Congrats, Edwige Ligonde!) and I also got some great new ideas from our Fast & Furious session and met some new vendors and made some new friends along the way.  Which leads me to our next three features, who are all great women I met while attending this year!  Always so great to meet some new women in our industry, whether they are just starting out on their career path or transitioning from another one.  These three ladies bring so much energy and life to the table. I’m pleased to introduce Eileen, Jamie and Stephanie!

Elaine Horton, Consultant

“Two months ago, I left my job to pursue a career in employee benefits consulting.

The accomplishment is not the resignation; instead, it is the intentionality I put toward my professional development. I read books and scoured LinkedIn to learn more about health care. Dating back to 2017, I was fascinated by the Health Rosetta principles as a rare place where health care innovation worked – it wasn’t just a buzz word or an app.  With benefits consulting as a possible horizon, I took calculated risks to gain experience, including leading marketing at a women’s health medical device startup. We successfully exited through an acquisition by a public company. The new company chose me to lead, scaling a new procedure internationally across thousands of physicians and millions of patients. I helped change a standard of care in women’s health. Now it’s time to do the same in the employee benefits industry.”
