Chief Development Officer
Since 2018, Dena has been instrumental in developing impactful initiatives for Verida, including our Quality Management Program and its governing Quality Management Committee; and our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Program. Her work and leadership have been instrumental in positioning Verida for growth while assuring that our mission remains member focused.
Dena’s philosophy is very simple, “Our industry is quickly evolving, with technology being front and center. While this is a good thing, we are careful to remain member focused and use our cutting edge technology in a way that first and foremost serves the member. They are why we do what we do.”
Dena leads our business development and marketing teams, with the goal of positioning Verida as the best choice for non-emergency medical transportation services in the Medicaid and Medicare space. As the Chief Development Officer, Dena leverages the broad and comprehensive knowledge she has gained to drive business growth, while continuing to support our member focused services, and an inclusive corporate culture. She is a graduate of Belmont University, where she earned degrees in Journalism and Political Science. She also holds an Executive Master’s of Business Administration from Georgia State University.
