“Over the years, I’ve heard story after story – but my favorite was the first year I worked here,” she explained. “I was in sales that fall and was enrolling a couple who was turning 65 – they were already retired and had been paying a huge amount for their insurance. She was on oxygen but he had little with regard to health care. When they found out what their new costs would be and how well their new coverage would provide for her, he looked at her and said, ‘well honey, maybe we can start to go out to dinner again.’ As a young person in my 20’s, it just stuck with me so much what a sacrifice these two had made to make sure she had the care she needed.”
O’Neill has served on the Board of the Alzheimer’s Association of Cincinnati since 2019 and is chair of the Walk to End Alzheimer’s ─ Cincinnati Tristate in 2022. In addition, she is a member of the Young Presidents Organization.
