As an Account Management Executive for Major Accounts for Anthem, Dre joins us with over a decade of experience in the employee benefits industry – starting as an analyst and eventually moving to sales. “I enjoy strategizing with brokers and clients about benefits like digging into the weeds of their trend and utilization. I am big into numbers and getting to the root of the cause so we can come up with a solution to make the population healthier. It is also great to meet with the client and get to know their workforce, understand their needs and provide the best options that fit them,” shares Dre. In her free time she enjoys spending it with her family and friends, watching sports, listening to live music, and painting.
