Executive Vice President & Chief Operating Officer, Blue Shield of California
A BFA holder from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Sarah sought to find her way in the world first through Art History, Print-Making and Photography. However, moving to Boston following her education, a chance meeting with a family friend led to her first healthcare role as part of an internship. It was her volunteer experience with the Boston Visiting Nurse Associates that led to her passion for healthcare and healthcare policy. Sarah felt healthcare had a problem to fix: She saw healthcare as incredibly complicated, expensive and quite often did not serve people well and most often failed people in their most fragile and vulnerable moments in life.
