Employee profile

Jessica Jarmin

Cognosante has provided me with a truly robust career path. In the eight years that I have been with the company, I have held several positions that serve our clients directly and contribute to our corporate business development goals. My career at Cognosante began as a manager in a federal call center operation. I transitioned to business development to participate in corporate initiatives to build and expand Cognosante’s quality operations: starting in proposal management, moving into capture and strategy and growth.

Throughout my career, I’ve always been afforded an opportunity to earn progressive responsibility roles. My professional achievements here are my most significant accomplishments. Through Cognosante’s deep involvement in healthcare reform, I have been privileged to be intimately involved in the design, implementation, and execution of various aspects of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). More people than ever now have affordable access to healthcare, which is critical to producing a healthier, happier, and smarter nation. My time here has been transformative professionally, putting my career on a fast-paced trajectory. On a personal level, I have reveled in working in this industry at such a historically significant period for healthcare in the United States.
