Brandi is based in Pennsylvania and is responsible for growing MAP’s payer-driven partnerships with addiction treatment providers and other organizations primarily in the northeastern region of the United States. MAP has made significant progress contracting with health insurance plans throughout the country to deliver its tech-enabled and scalable peer recovery support services and outcomes tracking for individuals and families seeking long-term recovery from addiction.
With 18 years of experience as a leader in behavioral healthcare, Brandi has worked in many facets of the healthcare including sales, sales team management, and creating dynamic marketing/brand strategies that engage clients in order to provide the best treatment options – while maintaining integrity - in a challenging industry.
