Emily Schlichting, Omaha

Emily was recently diagnosed with an autoimmune disease called Behcet’s Syndrome and regularly sees two rheumatologists, an opthamologist, a dermatologist, an internist and other specialists. She has always wanted to work for non-profit organizations and in public service, but some of these jobs don't offer the health insurance coverage she needs. This has forced her to factor health insurance into her future plans. Now that she can stay on her parents' plan, she has the freedom to pursue the career she wants while maintaining quality coverage.
