Getting Healthcare Right

Krista Lardieri

Krista Lardieri

I have been at Highmark Health for over five years. I previously worked in diversity and inclusion, and began my career in HR analytics prior to graduating college. I’ve been very fortunate to have had so many different experiences early in my career which have led me to my current role in corporate communications.

I define myself by my love of learning and am constantly reading or teaching myself how to do something when I’m not at work. Over the years, some of the things I’ve picked up include instruments, dances, languages, drawing, photography, and creative writing, just to name a few. Among my favorite pastimes are watching movies or binge-worthy television series, music, reading, and travel. My favorite authors are Tolkien, Wilde, and Steinbeck, and my absolute favorite place on earth is Ireland.

I have two dogs named after movie and book characters, Eggsy and Kili, and one cat, Zorro, who might as well be another dog.

I knew writing was something that I loved to do very early in my life. More specifically,  it started in third grade when my teacher told me a story I wrote had made her cry — and won an award for a national poetry contest that same year. It’s wonderful to be able to share that lifelong passion here on the Highmark Health blog.
