Becca Pearce is a strong-willed executive who spent the majority of her career in strategic and leadership positions within the health insurance arena – working for CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield and Kaiser Permanente before entering the public sector.
In 2011, Becca was chosen by Governor O’Malley to be the CEO of the Maryland Health Benefit Exchange. She served the state of Maryland for two years before returning to the private sector as a Vice President within the University of Maryland Medical System.
In 2016, after surviving and recovering from a brain tumor, she recognized the career she had dedicated her life to was no longer what she wanted, and that both her professional and personal experiences could be used to serve others. She started Extend Coaching & Consulting, an executive coaching firm that helps leaders find their voice. Extend’s clients lead with more confidence, their teams deliver better results and their companies grow faster.
She is an avid runner who lives in Towson with her husband, daughter and 4-legged office-mate.
