Sylvia is a strategic advisor and health and wellness expert with over 15 years experience designing and implementing innovative health and wellness solutions within health systems for health plans, employers, and the participants. Her motivation to make a difference in health was first realized when she was 27 and lost her mother to ovarian cancer. This generated a lot of questions for her related to getting the right health care, knowing what the right care is, and fumbling through a system that simply is not always built for the average person.
With this perspective, Sylvia is driven to bring health to people in ways that can actually make a difference in their lives and the lives of their families. In working with corporations, she has delivered successful programs that focus on engaging participants in both preventive and chronic condition management so that the positive productivity and cost improvements are realized in addition to having engaged, healthy, and happy participants.
Her experience includes working with:
- Health plan development, pricing, and sales
- Large global corporations within industries including technology, finance, construction, and energy
- Employees from varied work styles including working on-site, at home, and in expatriate assignments
Sylvia is a college professor focused on Corporate Employee Pay and Benefits Strategy, Data Analytics and Performance Metrics and Consulting Skill Development. She strongly believes in good health. She is certified as a Holistic Nutritionist and Group Fitness Instructor and regularly leads spin and exercise classes at her local YMCA. In support of cancer recovery, she also coaches groups who engage with the Stanford University / YMCA program to help those recovering from cancer to gain health through exercise.
