HealthCare Access to Maryland
Nineteen years ago, Traci Kodeck went to work for HealthCare Access to Maryland, the nonprofit agency that connects Marylanders to health coverage, as an outreach worker.
Fourteen and a half years later, in December 2015, she was named CEO.
It was an impressive rise through the ranks at the agency — and, more important, one she says helps her in her present job.
“I have outreached clients across Baltimore City, connected them to health coverage, assisted them in navigating a complex health care system and focused on providing them with necessary resources,” she said. “This makes me a stronger CEO.”
