Singer at Heart Clinical Coordinator
Singer at Heart
Abegail is the kind of person who puts her heart and soul into work – and she also lets it shine on stage. At a young age, she fell in love with music and singing, and she pursued that passion in everything from school activities to pageants. Even today, she's driven to do her best work whether she's singing on stage or entering data as one of our clinical coordinators. It takes significant effort, skill and dedication to work with the numbers that affect a patient's care, and she enjoys her work as much as she enjoys the team around her. As she told us, "When you put your all into something – for the benefit of someone else - it shows just how much you value that person." And that's music to our ears.

Philanthropist & Life-Changer
Director of Strategic Growth and Development
Imagine if you had the opportunity to improve people's lives - not just through your job, but also with endeavors outside of work. Adriana was lucky enough to find herself improving lives in her job at UnitedHealth Group, and even more blessed when she founded Anderi International, a non-profit that assists people with disabilities in Mexico. Using her talents to better lives comes naturally to Adriana – whether she applies her background in international trade or her ability to build teams around a common goal. She's amassed a group of volunteers who assist the foundation in the same way - wholeheartedly, without reservation, and without compensation. Unless you count their tears of joy when they see the foundation at work.
Dragon Boat Racer Utilization Management Nurse
Dragon Boat Racer
Utilization Management Nurse
One thing you can't help noticing at a dragon boat race: the strong, steady drumbeats setting the pace for each team. The rhythmic pounding is critical to synchronizing the paddlers' strokes and guiding them to peak performance. So we're not surprised to hear Anthony make frequent comparisons between his passion for dragon boat racing and his job with UnitedHealth Group. Teamwork is vital to both, he says, and the best part of his job is working with people. Whether he's on the dragon boat or at work, he appreciates being part of a large group where he can also benefit from the experiences of different individuals. For Anthony, happiness isn't about marching to the beat of a different drummer. It's about finding the beat that unites us all.
Army Veteran & Non-Profit Board Member Portfolio Director
Army Veteran & Non-Profit Board Member
Arthur's work as a portfolio director within UnitedHealthcare Military & Veterans is testament to his sense of responsibility and integrity. A veteran himself, he's a natural advocate for active duty military members, veterans and their families. His dedication runs deep, but it's also personal. Outside of work, he devotes significant time and resources to the NAMES foundation, his family's non-profit organization founded to honor his cousin killed while serving in Afghanistan.
Hockey Lover Deputy General Council
Deputy General Council
Relationships are integral to every aspect of Apur's life. As a lawyer with UnitedHealth Group, he nurtures relationships with clients because it makes him better at his job. At home, he finds fulfillment in being the best dad and husband he can be. And whether he's playing hockey with co-workers, coaching his daughter's team, or consulting with colleagues at work, he's following this consistent creed: teamwork is vital to success, and every person is equally important. It's just one of the things we like about him, and it's one of the things that makes us stronger, together.
Claire, Humane Society Customer Service Advocate
Claire, Humane Society
Customer Service Advocate
This is how Claire's heart works: what's better than adopting one shelter dog? Answer: caring for animals as a Humane Society volunteer, and taking the time to match each pet to its perfect adoptive family. She says that being with the dogs keeps her centered and reminds her to be present in the moment. The same empathy and attentiveness complements her work as a customer care advocate, a role in which she really needs to understand where people are coming from. So what’s better than helping one person feel better about their health care options? Helping multiple people do it, every single day. Sounds like we've identified a pattern here, and we're not surprised.

Family Cheerleader & Dog Lover National Medical Director
Family Cheerleader & Dog Lover
National Medical Director
Before joining UnitedHealth Group, Donna was a physician treating her own patients. Today she's one of our national medical directors, which means she's still working for patients but from a different vantage point – one that also works for doctors, clinics and the health care system itself. We're pretty sure Donna has a lifelong passion for taking care of other people, because when she's not at work she's relishing time with her family, which includes four children and two large dogs. She says she loves her job because she wants "to make a difference in a lot of people's lives". We suspect she's already doing just that, every single day.
International Humanitarian Pediatric Nurse Practitioner
Pediatric Nurse Practitioner
As both a pediatrician and international humanitarian, Glenda has come face to face with one of the most humbling truths in life: gratitude transcends language and cultural differences. Whether she's serving patients through UnitedHealth Group or counseling families on an overseas medical mission trip, she's doing work that she loves, for a company that shares her vision. You might say she's one of those lucky people who found their calling in life. We say we're the lucky ones who found her.
