When did you make GC at your company? I was hired as general counsel in 2010, which also marked my return to Cigna.  Prior to my return to Cigna, I served as senior vice president and general counsel for Lincoln Financial.

When did you decide to pursue the GC career path? I joined a law firm after school. After about eight years (which included a brief in-house stint at Johnson & Johnson), I realized I wanted to do something different with my career. That’s when I decided to pursue the in-house law track on a more permanent basis and joined MCI Inc.
