GMHEC Hires Wellbeing Coordinator

The Green Mountain Higher Education Consortium (GMHEC)  is pleased to announce the hiring of Rebecca Schubert as the Coordinator of the GMHEC Employee Wellbeing Program.  In this newly created position, she will coordinate efforts to establish a culture of health and wellbeing under the GMHEC umbrella at each member school and across the Consortium.  This will include identifying promotional needs, recommending, implementing and evaluating wellbeing programs and initiatives, assessing the wellbeing program effectiveness and communicating.

During the last several years, the Human Resources and Benefit teams have made significant progress in cost containment efforts related to health insurance.   Due to our vendor relationship with CIGNA which focuses on health initiatives and the commitment each college has demonstrated to Wellbeing, this position has been fully funded by CIGNA.

We are fortunate to have hired Rebecca with deep experience in health management.  She is a Registered Dietitian and a Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach with a lifelong passion for wellbeing and a commitment to self-actualization.  She holds masters degrees in Nutrition Education and Executive Leadership and has over fifteen years experience working in the health and wellness arena.  She is passionate about supporting others to make their vision of health and wellbeing their reality and has spent the last eight years coaching clients in the primary care setting.  Prior to that she worked for the VT Department of Health where she gained valuable experience in managing population health programs. Her passion, personal commitment to wellbeing, education and work experience will support the work of the Consortium in its aim to support employee wellbeing and engagement and reduce medical spending.  When she’s not working, you will most likely find her spending time with her husband and dog, hiking, snowshoeing, lifting weights or training for an endurance event.
