HBA Los Angeles would like to recognize Aleesa Haro as the volunteer of the quarter.
Aleesa graduated from the University of Michigan and started out with a career in the NYC art world before moving to Santa Monica to pursue filmmaking. She worked in production for seven years with a focus on directing and in post-production for five years as an editor before returning to school to study the pre-med life sciences. At 35 she transitioned to a career in healthcare marketing and communications, which led to her current role. Aleesa is currently the oncology business unit contract foundation analyst in the strategic pricing and contracts group within U.S. value and access at Amgen.
Aleesa joined the HBA to gain broader knowledge about the healthcare industry and build strong relationships with like-minded women. Throughout her engagement, Aleesa is quick to identify areas where she can help. She is proactive and sharp, setting a quick pace of business for our team. Aleesa has a diverse set of professional experiences, giving her a rich network and knowledge base to draw on in her contributions to the HBA.
Together with the smart, hardworking and inspired women she is meeting through the HBA, she is excited to be part of the solution to bringing better healthcare and better treatments to patients around the world.
