Our Team

Becca Pearce, MBA

Becca Pearce, MBA

I’ve been a strong-willed, no-nonsense kind of leader within the insurance market the majority of my career. I spent several years at CareFirst, BlueCross BlueShield and Kaiser Permanente before being chosen to run Maryland’s Health Benefit Exchange during the O’Malley administration in 2011. After that, I went on to work at University of Maryland Medical System Health Plans (UMMSHP) as a vice president. I understand insurance, I love defining and implementing strategy, and I excel at working with other leaders.

Then why the change, you ask?  Two reasons.

I often refer to myself as a “recovering lawyer”. After a short stint in private practice, I ran off and joined the circus as Vice President of Legal Affairs for Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey. During that time, I learned as much about business and management as I did about law. Ringling Bros. is a multi-faceted company with a broad array of issues that required nimble balancing and precise execution.

After leaving Ringling Bros., I switched to management consulting before eventually becoming CEO of United Healthcare of the Mid-Atlantic, a $300+ million division of United Health Group.

Marijo Wright

My background is different from most leadership coaches. I was an independent producer and writer of television documentaries and co-owner of a production company. I was passionate about the work and thrilled to receive a National Emmy Award in 2004 for a two-hour PBS special about the Senate Watergate Hearings. Earning an Emmy was a dream I had had since high school.

Nancy Barnes, CPCC

I come to the world of coaching from that of character study. Having grown up a perfectionist in preppy Baltimore with a degree from Princeton in English and Theater, I know what it is to be driven, and to wonder simultaneously if there is something more--something on a soul level. I searched actively for that as I worked as an actor for twelve years, discerning the why for each and every character.

Thank you soooo much. You are an amazing coach. I already put my actions into place and I feel so much better about where this will go with the business. I wish I had you as a coach when I first started! Who knows where my practice would be now.

Small business owner

I have worked with Becca for years. Her strong ability to think strategically and then translate that thinking into cohesive plans have always been spot on. As a coach, she is thoughtful, intuitive and caring. I plan to continue using her services in my current role and organization.
