About Jessica

Since joining in 2008, Jessica has served clients across the healthcare industry, including pharmaceuticals, payors, and providers. Her work has primarily been targeted at creating healthcare value in the payor space, using network strategy to provide access to more affordable care, and in the provider space, building new go-to-market capabilities to transition to more value-based payment models and take on risk.

Jessica’s recent work includes creating a value network strategy and development support for a local payor, starting from the decision to introduce a value network through a go-to-market approach with providers. She also created a long-term healthcare value strategy, working to develop a sustainable model for the payor to partner with major health systems to bend overall healthcare costs. And finally, she created a value-based care strategy, developing organization for a national provider system to identify, develop, and launch required capabilities.

Before joining McKinsey, Jessica conducted laboratory research in nanoparticle hyperthermia for cancer treatment at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center.
