Although it might not look like it, what I was doing exactly a year ago isn’t entirely different from I’m doing right now. I was sitting at a desk, staring at a screen, trying to get a broad sense of what to expect for the New Year.
Sometimes, the biggest life lessons are learned through experiences at work. In the nine years I’ve worked at Borshoff, I’ve retained a number of valuable lessons that have shaped my life.
INDIANAPOLIS – MDwise was recently recognized for its quality health care, service and member satisfaction. The company was rated 4 out of 5 among health insurance plans in the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA)’s Medicaid Health Insurance Plan Ratings 2015-2016. MDwise was the top-rated Medicaid HMO in Indiana.
Before I had kids, I was excited about the things I’d teach my children – tangible things like how to sing the ABC’s, color inside the lines, ride a bike, and life lessons like – how to share with others, be kind, get up and try again and have a servant’s heart. The list goes on. What I didn’t realize, until I became a mother, was how much I’d learn from my kids.
Today is my 30th anniversary at Borshoff. I’m celebrating the big 3-0 exactly one year after the agency turned 30. Yes, I started on the company’s first anniversary. Back when Ronald Reagan was president and Robert Orr was Indiana’s governor. My desk sported a second-hand IBM Selectric typewriter. And the agency didn’t yet offer health insurance.

As the summer concert season is upon us, I’m reminded of my days back in college when I served as a marketing intern at Deer Creek Music Center (it was still Deer Creek back then). That summer, I learned the in’s and out’s of the concert industry. Looking back, little did I know that a meet and greet with the Foo Fighters would stick with me professionally after more than 15 years.
Each year, as the weather begins to warm, the Hoosier Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America presents the Pinnacle Awards. And the show last Wednesday night left us with a spring in our step.
