May 16, 2019
Manchester, NH – Geneia, a healthcare analytic solutions and services company that is simplifying the evolution to value-based care, announced today its president, Heather Lavoie, will address students, parents and faculty at the University of New Hampshire at Manchester’s 34th annual commencement ceremony. A Manchester, NH native, Lavoie will share her journey from a childhood marked by adverse childhood experiences to a first-generation college graduate, a nationally-recognized speaker and leader of one of New Hampshire’s foremost health information technology companies.
“Growing up on Manchester’s West Side, I never envisioned a life where I would lead a health technology company just a few miles from where I was born, never mind be so honored as to deliver a commencement address,” said Lavoie. “My journey is one of tireless pursuit of doing the right next thing, committing to continuous growth, and saying yes to professional opportunities even when I feared I lacked all of the necessary skills and experience.”
Lavoie has led start-ups, health plans and provider organizations during her 30-year tenure in healthcare. She has directed initiatives for private and public organizations on strategy, transparency, diversification, product innovation, operations and analytics. Prior to Geneia, Lavoie co-founded and served as vice president of product development, delivery and engineering for Choicelinx Corp., through its successful exit to CIGNA Health Care. Lavoie is a graduate of Notre Dame College and received a Masters of Business Administration from Southern New Hampshire University. Lavoie is the board chair of the Granite United Way, is a member of the NH Tech Alliance Board, and Advisory Board for UNH Manchester, and is an investor in the NH Impact Fund.
UNH Manchester’s commencement is May 16, 2019 at 6:00 pm at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Manchester. For more information, visit: https://manchester.unh.edu/commencement.
