Prior to that role, she worked in sales at both national and local carriers.

“Courtney possesses both deep knowledge of our market and industry but also the skill to develop innovative solutions for employers,” said Claire Verity, president of Regence BlueShield. “Her record of successful and trusted relationships will be an advantage for our state’s large employers.”
