Jamie LeRoy ’06, a UW-Eau Claire English graduate, and Julie Gau ’96, a marketing graduate, both work in the e-commerce division of Assurant Health. Together they drive millions of dollars in sales by continually enhancing Assurant Health’s website.
Jamie’s position as a digital content planner allows her to help clients understand their health insurance options and navigate the often confusing landscape of health care reform.
Julie works directly with clients as the company’s digital customer conversion manager, ensuring that they find the products they need and understand their options throughout the purchasing process.
The two recently combined their expertise to overhaul the Assurant Health website. This resulted in a newly designed website that is well-organized and tailored to their customers’ needs, making it easier to find and purchase plans online.
Both Jamie and Julie said their time spent at UW-Eau Claire gave them a strong foundation for their professional successes.
“It’s clear that we both have a very strong work ethic and are easy to get along with — a core trait of many UW-Eau Claire alumni — and we both carry our lessons of perseverance in climbing ‘the hill’ over into our everyday lives to make sure we get the job done,” Julie said.
“We both cherish our time at UW-Eau Claire and wonder why anyone would choose to go anywhere else,” Jamie said. “We make sure to show our Blugold pride even in our wardrobes.”
Jamie referenced the photo to the left, in which she and Julie wear T-shirts that read, “All women are created equal, but only the finest become UW-Eau Claire graduates.”
