I am the Health Matters Program Manager for State of Idaho Employees. I enjoyed the challenge of designing the Health Matters Wellness Program from the ground up. I keep worksite wellness visible, relevant, and accessible to over 18,000 employees via the Health Matters website and blog, bi-monthly wellness e-newsletters, and over 115 agency-based Wellness Contacts. I believe in the impact wellness initiatives can have on organizational success and on employee effectiveness. My background is in medical social work, human resources, management training and consultation, and instructional design. My Masters is in Instructional and Performance Technology. I am a Certified Wellcoach.
