Rita Johnson-Mills is the speaker at the Good Leadership Breakfast – she’s a fire ball of contagious energy.
Passion, positive energy and the spirit of abundance radiate from Rita Johnson-Mills – she’s the President and CEO of United Healthcare Community Plan of Tennessee. “I grew up in poverty in Missouri, with eleven siblings, raised by a single mother,” she shared with a smile. “I’m someone who grew up on Medicaid, and now I am someone who has administered Medicaid at the local, state and federal level. I’m living proof goodness pays!”
Meet Rita for breakfast
Rita Johnson-Mills is the speaker at the Good Leadership Breakfast on Friday, October 21. If you want to meet her, please join us – but you will have to show up early, or move quickly afterward. She will be dashing off to fly home to see her son play high school football. In the uber-intense corporate world of healthcare, Rita is a shining example of the “blending the Seven Fs” concept we celebrate at the breakfast. “One of the things I’ve learned as a senior executive woman leader is that I have to protect time to be present with my husband and son,” she said emphatically. “If your ‘breakfast’ was a ‘luncheon’ instead, you’d have to find another speaker, because this mom has to get home to watch football!”
Promoting fairness is the message
