Name: Carolyn McClanahan
Role with JCCI: Happy to be a resource to JCCI on all things about health care reform & Guest for March 2013 Mystery Guest Lunch
JCCI: What do you do from 9-5?
CM: My primary job is as a financial life planner helping people who need help aligning their finances and their life so they can be on a happy path. My second job is educating physicians and financial planners around the country on the content of the Affordable Care Act.
JCCI: What do you do outside of work?
CM: My life outside of “real” work consists of writing for Forbes on health care reform and end of life planning, volunteering as a physician at Sulzbacher Center for the Homeless and We Care, exercising to mitigate how much time I spend sitting on my rear-end, and spending precious time with my wonderful husband and cats. My brain loves to think about the possibilities for making the world a better place.
JCCI: How & when did you get involved with JCCI, JAX2025 or JCCI Forward?
CM: I have kept up with the great work of JCCI for years. I was invited to share the vision of health care reform so JCCI can help Jacksonville realize it’s incredible potential in the realm of health care.
JCCI: What is your favorite hidden gem in Jacksonville?
CM: KYV Farm – I have been a member of their community supported agriculture group since exception. Locally grown food is a key to personal and environmental health for our city. We should all eat local as much as possible.
JCCI: What community issue is on your radar that doesn’t get enough attention right now?
CM: It gets attention but not the resources – we truly need a pedestrian and bike friendly city if we are going to realize our vision of a healthy city.
JCCI: Why is JCCI important to you and Jacksonville?
CM: Politicians and administrations come and go. JCCI does a great job providing clear ideas and direction for our city on a consistent basis.
