How long have you worked at Ideon?

I was among the first few hires! It’ll be 7 years in January.

Tell us about your day-to-day at Ideon.

Like Ross and his couch I’m pivoting most of the time! (IYKYK.. If you don’t… Friends reference) My main responsibility is acquiring data from insurance carriers and public sources — it’s a collaborative role, working with various teams to get the job done. Additionally, I’m currently partnering with our product team on enhancing internal tooling for our data operations staff. It’s really interesting!

What attracted you to Ideon’s mission?

I liked the idea of transforming the confusing world of health insurance data into something consumers can actually understand. And the work is important, as it helps people make better decisions for themselves and their families.

What excites you about the future of Ideon?

The sky is the limit for Ideon. We have a great product and the right team to make the “what if we…?” and “could we…?” questions a reality.

How have you grown professionally while on our team?

When I first started at Ideon, we didn’t have the robust processes and structure that we have in place today. It’s been an incredible experience to develop those processes, and now, with a much larger team, seeing them really be utilized to create efficiencies and a better customer experience. I’ve learned that communication between colleagues and across departments is essential. And taking pride in what you do makes all the difference!


Favorite activity when you’re not working?

Reading (I know, boring but true)! Harry Potter is still my favorite series to date.

Favorite place you’ve traveled?

Costa Rica. Friendly people, amazing food, and gorgeous waterfalls.

Interesting fact about yourself… Go!

I love a good true crime documentary or podcast. Sword and Scale is one of my favorite podcasts and Dear Zachary: A Letter to a Son About His Father is an amazing documentary.
