What I’m Up To These Days
I’m currently working as a Senior Art Director at Brighton Agency, an integrated marketing and communications agency in Clayton, MO. My work at Brighton has focused on the Centene Corporation’s family of Healthcare brands, including:
• Ambetter (insurance coverage offered on the Health Insurance Marketplace)
• Allwell (Medicare)
• Envolve (integrated healthcare solutions)
• Over a dozen state Medicaid plans
As the lead visual creative for Ambetter, my team’s work has helped the 5-year-old insurance company reach tremendous levels of success. From its origins as a complete unknown entity, we’ve built the Ambetter brand to its current position as the largest provider on the national Health Insurance Marketplace—with more than a million members nationwide.
