We’re less than one month into 2017 and the Talix team is already expanding! I’m very excited to welcome Marilyn Garry, our new senior director of risk adjustment & quality. Prior to joining Talix, Marilyn lent her risk adjustment and quality expertise to major health plans, including Anthem, Optum, HealthSpring and Aetna, as well as to Business Process Outsourcing companies, including ArroHealth and Verisk. We’re so happy to have her on board! Read on to discover a few fun facts about her:
What brought you to Talix?
I thought it would be a great opportunity to utilize my coding skill set. I think my knowledge can really help further streamline the production and accuracy of Coding InSight, which will in turn help Talix’s customers.
What would you do (for a career) if you weren’t doing this?
I’m a Registered Nurse, so if I weren’t doing this I see myself going back to patient care.
What’s one thing you couldn’t live without?
My grandchildren and family.
Describe your perfect day off:
A nice summer breeze on the whitest sands possible, with the bluest water and a blue sky that makes relaxation the best time ever.
One fun or surprising fact about you:
I grew up on a large farm and showed horses – I took the state championship for Michigan. I also have raced late model cars on dirt tracks and raced in demolition derbies, taking first place in several races.
