Our newest co-blogger, Patrick Paule. Pat's a long-time commenter, and has penned some terrific guest-posts for us. His latest, about the new Navigators, is here.

When Pat expressed an interest in doing more of those, it just seemed natural to invite him on-board as a co-blogger, and he's accepted that invitation.

Patrick's been an employee benefits professional with Savage & Associates since 1997, where he's  been advocating for employers and individuals on their health insurance and other employee benefit plans.  In addition to serving his clients, Pat also has spent time serving on various community boards and is very active in the National Association of Health Underwriters. His effort as the Legislative Chair for the local chapter of NAHU has placed him in the position of being actively involved in the trenches of the Health Care Reform law.

A self-proclaimed (Iegend in his own mind) health nerd, Patrick has spoken on the impact and challenges of health care reform to various organizations, including several local Chambers of Commerce, many business groups, as well as to the clients of Savage & Associates.  He was featured in a July 2009 CNBC article on the costs and tax ramifications of health care reform and has also advised some of Ohio’s elected officials on different aspects of Obamacare.

Patrick and his wife reside in northwest  Ohio, with their three very active boys. In his spare time, he enjoys serving up some serious barbecue and grilling, watching his kids' sporting events, and playing a little golf.

Within his community he serves as President of the local  Jr. Jacket Basketball program and coaches his boys in their various extracurricular activities. He serves on the Savage Foundation Golf Committee that annually raises roughly $90,000 for local charities. He is an active member of the Advocacy Task force for the local Chamber of Commerce and also serves as a board member for the Bowling Green Community Development Foundation.

Welcome aboard, Pat!
