Getting Healthcare Right

Lily Kendall

I’m a woman, a wife, and a mom – occasionally spastic, usually silly, stretched by stress, and trying to balance work and life in a way that meets all of my obligations, allows me to be personally fulfilled, and makes everyone happy. I’ve worked in a variety of areas at Highmark for the past eight years, but still haven’t fully discovered what I want to be when I ‘grow-up’.

Coincidentally, it wasn’t until becoming a mom that I realized how not ‘grown- up’ I actually am – but my main goal is to be the kind of parent who can point my child in the direction of confidence, strength of character, balance, cautious extremism, compassion, and expressed emotion – sometimes leading by example, and sometimes by projection. I plan the heck out of everything, revise on the fly, and try to laugh more than groan.
