Recorded July 13, 2017 in Minneapolis, MN  | Subscribe

Nancy Feldman led UCare, a health plan covering low income and senior persons, for 20 years. During her tenure, UCare grew from a small demonstration project to a plan covering more than 400,000 individuals.

Nancy came to be the CEO of UCare after working in various government positions related to health care and then at a major private health plan. Each of these jobs was a little bigger than the last, and the sometimes-scary transitions taugt her many things. Including that you should never predict what’s going to happen next in your career based on what’s happening in the present. She says, just do your best work and there will always be a next thing.

Kerry found Nancy in Minneapolis, Minnesota. They talked about leadership, learning to fill bigger and bigger positions, and the importance of humor.
