This month, we meet Kristina Veinotte (she/her), Certified Application Counselor and Navigator.
Finding health coverage options can be confusing and a challenge. Kristina, a Certified Application Counselor and Navigator, helps patients at Lamprey Health Care complete eligibility and enrollment forms for health coverage options through the Marketplace. She works to explain the benefits, differences and eligibilities of insurance plans to help patients select a qualified health plan.
Tell us a little about yourself. Where did you grow up? How did you get here?
I grew up in Winthrop MA. I had family in New Hampshire that loved the relaxed rural feel. I decided to leave traffic and city life in 2007 and made the move to NH.
What do you like most about working at Lamprey Health Care?
I love that Lamprey Health Care empowers our team to put the patients first. There is a genuine feeling of care and concern for our patients, which sets us apart from lots of other providers. Lamprey also embraces a family like environment for its employees and invests in us to grow within the organization.
Did you always want to work in healthcare?
When I was in my early twenties, I made a decision to pursue healthcare as a career, it was something about being able to help people that inspired me to follow this path.
What would you do if you weren’t doing this?
Prior to joining Lamprey. I had the awesome experience of being a Stay at Home Mom, which I loved. It was great to spend time with our 3 kids and volunteer on various town and school committees. I would probably still be doing that if I wasn’t hired at Lamprey!
What are some of your favorite things to do outside of work?
I love spending time with my husband and 3 kids, we love anything outdoors from our Lake Trips to Ossipee, or Beach Weeks in Maine.
What advice would you give to others to be healthy?
I think walking is critical, I make sure I am active every day and moving.
