Welcome Shawna Dandridge to the Health Plan Alliance team

Health Plan Alliance


Join us in warmly welcoming Shawna Dandridge, Vice President of Program Services, as the newest Health Plan Alliance (HPA) team member. Shawna brings a wealth of experience to her role, having served most recently as Chief Operating Officer at a behavioral health managed care organization with more than 170 providers and 720K eligible members.  In previous roles, Shawna supported policy and systems design while working within the PolicyLab at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and has consulted nationally on projects of varying scales—from overseeing school health services to funding and policy mechanisms for integrated care.

As Vice President of Program Services, Shawna will play a crucial role in supporting the HPA network by facilitating connections and collaborations for HPA members. Her extensive experience in health plan operations will greatly contribute to maintaining a well-balanced and engaged HPA network.

Shawna holds a Master of Social Work degree from West Chester University of Pennsylvania, is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, and has continued her education at Stanford University’s Graduate School of Business. Outside of work, she resides in Philadelphia, PA, with her husband and their two cats, Mac and Cheese. Shawna enjoys spending time outdoors and cherishing moments with her niece and nephew.

We are thrilled to have Shawna join our team and look forward to the valuable insights and contributions she will bring to the Health Plan Alliance. Please join us in welcoming her aboard!
