I feel that being a military spouse has made me, if nothing else, resilient. We have moved several times, all over the country, with little to no notice. I had to several times change my career path and rebuild my support system, often on my own as my husband’s job had him away a lot. I feel that the Veteran Business Resource Group at Highmark has given me the opportunity to help support veterans in a new and exciting way, especially with the organizations commitment hiring our veterans. I appreciate working for an organization that feels as passionately about this community as I do.

I love working at Highmark because this company really cares about the community it serves.  As a manager for customer service, I get to hear firsthand the issues our members face on a daily basis and it is truly gratifying to be part of a team that services their needs. My time on active duty really taught me to be adaptable and flexible, enabling me to focus on the critical the issues we face.  It allows me to quickly see the problem, review options, and then work towards a common sense solution. I am most excited about the VETS BRG assisting with veteran recruiting.  Helping our veteran community transition to civilian life and possibly to a job at Highmark is a wonderful thing.
