This week we’re talking with Brandy Burch, a co-founder and the CEO of Benefitbay, a company that works with other companies and ICHRA — Individual Coverage Health Reimbursement Arrangement, which is a health insurance solution for a company to offer its employees.
Brandy started her professional career in the Kansas City area, including two years with Visit KC. But she’s had an interesting journey — at least certainly not a straight line. She graduated from Emporia State with a degree in accounting before working for various companies. But then about 10 years after graduating, she went back to school for another undergrad degree before getting a Masters of Business Administration. In 2021 she was part of a group that started what became Benefitbay in Omaha, Nebraska. A year later, in April 2022, she was selected as the company's CEO. After securing a second round of funding, Brandy moved the company's headquarters to the Kansas City area earlier this year. She did all of this — ALL of this — as a mother.
So, we chat about Brandy's background, the "long and winding road," her persistence to overcome adversity, and the COURAGE it's taken to do all of this.
