She started her Utz career 9 years ago in a newly created role as Health and Wellness Coordinator where she opened the Hanover-based Utz Health and Wellness Center and expanded programs and partnerships throughout the national Utz footprint to improve the health and well-being of associates and find opportunities for them to become better consumers of healthcare. Her role later evolved into that of Health Promotion Manager where she facilitated the opening of the Utz Health and Wellness Center, an onsite primary care clinic in Hanover, PA and continued to innovate ways to improve health while curbing the associates’ and the organization’s healthcare spend.

Ginger has been an integral part of developing a bundled payment program for joint replacements and a direct contract mammogram program with local providers.

In addition to numerous clinical certifications, she is a Certified Lymphedema Therapist and a Certified Ergonomic Assessment Specialist and trained in Neurodevelopmental Techniques. She has been a guest speaker at many state and national events on a variety of health management topics.

Ginger is a member of the National Alliance of Healthcare Purchasers Leadership Council and COVID-19 task force as well as the Harrisburg Area Community College Health and Wellness Promotion Advisory Committee. She is also currently on the Board of the Hanover VNA and the Board Chair of the Central Pennsylvania Business Group on Health. Ginger is involved in various initiatives with the Association for Corporate Health Risk Management and participated in the Exact Sciences Advisory Board for Colorectal Cancer Screenings at Jefferson University.

She had the privilege of helping develop the Utz Women’s Mentoring Group, the first employee resource group in the organization, serving as a past chair on the executive board. She still remains active in philanthropy and mentoring initiatives with this group.

In May of 2022 Ginger was nominated as a “Woman of Influence” by her organization for the Shelby Report, a national trade publication for the grocery industry.
