Director, Reimbursement & Policy Insights


As a Director within the Reimbursement Strategy and Tactics team, I devise and execute reimbursement strategies for pharmaceutical and biotech clients in order to enhance patient access to critical therapies. Coupled with experience in health policy analysis and data analytics, I work to ensure our manufacturer partners receive comprehensive and actionable guidance to maximize access to their products.

I also have a wide range of experience in implementing health reform strategies with a specific focus on the health insurance exchange market to the Medicare Advantage and Part D programs. I strive to help clients understand the relevant market trends related to the exchange and Medicare marketplaces as well as help them decipher the impact to product and pipeline portfolios.

Prior to joining Xcenda, I worked as consultant for manufacturer government affairs and managed market teams, acting as a resource on health reform and Medicare Part D issues. My experience also extends to managed care industry, specifically for an Aetna subsidiary.

I received my Bachelor's degree in Political Science from the University of South Carolina and a Master in Healthcare Administration from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

“My role allows me to marry my love of health policy with my passion for patient access. In such a dynamic healthcare landscape, it is paramount for programs to fully understand how external forces are affecting their patients’ access to critical medications.”

Join our team.

Come be a part of something special.
