He currently works at Optum in Boston, MA as a Technology Project Manager building out the data analytics capabilities for the Employer & Individual business segment. Before moving to Boston, Ryan worked for Optum out of their Hartford office where he completed three rotations in the Technology Development Program throughout his first 2 years.

“Being a mentor allows me to ‘pay it forward’, so to speak. During my time at UConn, I was fortunate enough to have great connections with the leaders of the BCLC. They helped me develop and reach my full potential. I hope that I can help some current students discover the starting point for their career the way my mentors helped me back at UConn.”
