Director HR Operations; Meruelo Group, LLC

Tammy Valle is thrilled to join in the discussion of benefits technology and is looking forward to sharing her success story and providing her distinctive point of view. 
A native of Houston, TX, Tammy has called Southern California home for nearly two decades. 
She graduated from California State University, Long Beach with a Bachelor of Arts in Interpersonal and Organizational Communication Studies with a minor in English Literature. 
Directly out of school Tammy began her career with a brokerage firm where she managed small group employer health plans, 401k retirement plans and Medicare individual supplement plans. 
Her proudest achievement to date is the 10 years she served as Corporate Director of Employee Benefits for Prime Healthcare. In that time she was instrumental in launching the self-funded plan into a robust plan insuring 50,000 members and representing 48 Prime owned Hospitals in 14 states.  Under Tammy’s oversight Prime saved nearly $100 million over her tenure.  
Her goals at Meruelo are just as bold, starting with improving the benefit plans for all Team Members, making coverage more expansive and costs more affordable. 
When she’s not busy saving the world, Tammy enjoys gardening, Massage Envy appointments and raising her two sons with her husband of 20 years.
