Getting Healthcare Right

Karen Badzgon

Karen BadzgonI’ve been a Wellness Coach with Highmark for over 10 years. Prior to Highmark I worked at HEALTHSOUTH Rehabilitation Hospital for 17 years as Clinical Manager, Director of Therapeutic Recreation & Aquatics Department, focusing on health, wellness and fitness programs for people with physical challenges. I graduated from Kent State University with a B.S. in Education, Health and Human Services, with my concentration in Rehabilitation.

It’s rewarding to have an impact on health plan members’ lives by coaching and supporting them with their health and wellness goals and enhancing a healthier lifestyle.

I continue to pursue my passion of aquatic therapy and am active with the Aquatic Therapy and Rehab Institute. I enjoy healthy nutrition, being outdoors, swimming, walking, biking, gardening, yoga, staying active and family time!
