New Horizons on My Healthy Journey

My Healthy Journey: New Horizons

As many of you might remember, I moved to Washington about 2 years ago. What you don’t know, the reason I haven’t been posting much about my journey in 2018, is that I got a new full-time job in the tech community in Seattle last year. I’ve stayed on at Health Alliance part time, working on social media and the blog until now. But it’s finally time for me to fully say goodbye and look to new horizons.

Health Alliance has been a home for me in a lot of ways over the last 5 years. I’m leaving working with my father, my mentor, and many friends behind. Health Alliance gave me one of my best friends in Washington, professional relationships that have helped me build a career, and an amazing set of experiences. But most importantly, Health Alliance gave me a new outlook on life.

Growing a Career

When I came to Health Alliance, I was in a position that will sound familiar to many millennials. I’d just finished college in a recession with a journalism degree and no job prospects.

My boss had faith in me from the beginning, and he gave me the chance to jump into web content with both feet. I’m lucky to have had the opportunity to work with our amazing members and teams across Health Alliance at every turn.

Now, I’ll be moving forward in technology in Seattle with the skills I need to succeed because of those opportunities and the supportive community of our team and department.

My Healthy Journey

My role at Health Alliance has also been a blessing to my health. In your teens and early twenties, your health frequently isn’t your top priority or concern. Transitioning into my late twenties while working at this company has helped me stay incredibly informed about a variety of health and insurance topics.

Since working for Health Alliance, I have:

New Horizons

I turn 30 in a few months, and I’m happy to say that my professional and personal life are on track because of my healthy journey with Health Alliance.

While the portion of my journey that’s been with this company by my side is coming to a close, none of it would’ve been possible without the last 5 years with them. Thank you to so many wonderful people that work here and to our members. It’s been a pleasure.

So long and thanks for all the fish!
