Carolyne Kama

Director Healthcare & Life Sciences New York


Carolyne partners with healthcare payers to help them identify improved standard operating procedures, operating models, and business processes that foster institutional change. She performed a cost analysis of a healthcare payer’s existing marketing vendors and was able to identify more than $2 million in cost-savings opportunities.

Carolyne joined West Monroe in 2019 from Cognizant, where she was an associate director. She has a bachelor’s from Columbia University and is a certified Salesforce Administrator.
