Getting Healthcare Right

Jodie Ruediger

My passion for community began when my husband was serving in the military. I was a Department of Defense Civilian employee for Morale, Welfare and Recreation and a military spouse, which meant when I wasn’t working for the military I was volunteering for the military. When we returned home more than a decade ago I knew that I wanted to do something in my new community. I volunteered for our local borough and eventually became an elected official. I went on to work for a nonprofit and that experience led me to Highmark. Now I can share my experience and knowledge to help many charities through my work in Highmark Community Affairs. There is a nonprofit for everything! I get to help these nonprofits grow and I get to connect my community to the resources and services they provide. #bestjobever.
