Claudia provides employee benefit consulting support and services to large group clients and brokers that work with Benecon. She is responsible for the development of benefit strategies, funding alternatives, and cost containment initiatives which meet the needs of prospective and existing clients.
“In the last few years, it’s been my privilege to focus on launching new private sector consortiums and growing Benecon’s existing programs. That work has allowed me to provide creative solutions to my clients and competitive advantages to my partners.”
Claudia has over twenty years of sales, marketing and management experience. Prior to joining Benecon, she spent ten years with Aetna, holding positions in sales management, national accounts and broker relations.
University of Pittsburgh is her alma mater where she graduated with a dual major in business and economics. Claudia is also a Certified Worksite Wellness Specialist (C.W.W.S) by the National Wellness Institute. She puts that to good use by chairing our in-house wellness committee as well as volunteering with Lighten Up Lancaster County, a coalition focused on reducing obesity in Lancaster County, and has served as a member of The Hempfield School District Wellness Council.
