With our MyStory video series, we’re sharing an inside look at the lives, experiences and passions of people who are part of the Highmark Health community. These videos were created by the talented members of the Highmark Health video team: Richard “Zoot” Dwyer, Tanner Rose, Rachael Hower and Josh Elsass.

More than 43,000 people work at Highmark Health, and many more work with us through vendors and other partnerships. But no one is defined solely by their job title. From the challenges they’ve faced to the dreams they’ve chased, the members of the Highmark Health family all have a story to tell.

Meet Don: Health Care on the Go Mobile Unit

“I see some people that carry the weight of the world when they come on the mobile unit. If we can make that a better day, we’ve done a great thing and provided a service you couldn’t buy. I’m a helper.”


Meet John: Senior Security Coordinator

Six years in the military, including 10 months in Afghanistan, taught John a lot about leadership and teamwork. Now he helps keep the company and its employees safe as part of the “911 center for Highmark.”


Meet Kate: Prehospital Care Coordinator

From creating an award-winning health and wellness program for her fellow EMS providers, to serving as a paramedic, to her job at Allegheny Health Network, Kate lives her childhood dream of being a care provider every day in every way.
