In this role, Mickelle will own and will drive best practices across data analytics, underwriting, and actuarial services that bring valuable insights to OneDigital clients for multi-year strategic planning that meet business and benefits goals.

With the rising costs of healthcare, it is increasingly important for our clients to see in a transparent way the underlying data that drive health plan spend. Equally important is the need to leverage these data analytics as the foundation for us to develop with our client's long-term strategic plans to manage risk, to engage employees, and to control costs over time. Mickelle’s expansive knowledge and experience in data analytics, underwriting, and actuarial science strengthens the strategic value we bring to our clients.
