SARALYNN LEHNER

Senior Account Executive

Our farm girl from Montana who’s been with us for years decided that teaching wasn’t her calling but self-funding seems to have captured her attention.  She has over two decades of diverse experience in the employee benefit/health insurance industry.  Saralynn assists brokers, consultants, and TPA in all phases of successful implementation. She continues to operate as the lead point of contact for any and all matters specific to our customers.  She has visited all 50 states with her husband Dave, and now their bucket list has grown to include visiting National Parks and State Monuments. Thus far, their count is well over 100.
