Rachel Trevizo earns spot on the Corridor Business Journal's impressive 2020 list
Coralville, IA – Sept. 16 – MediRevv, a leading Iowa-based revenue cycle management company, is thrilled to announce Vice President of Revenue Cycle Services Rachel Trevizo earned a spot on the Corridor Business Journal’s Forty Under 40. This award recognizes just forty leaders under the age of 40 who have made a significant impact in their business and community early in their careers. In its sixteenth year, honorees were selected by a committee composed of last year’s Forty Under 40.
"From her first day at MediRevv, Rachel has truly exemplified strong leadership,” says MediRevv CEO Chris Klitgaard. “Rachel has been instrumental in MediRevv's growth, as we've gone from a 200-employee to an over 900-employee organization. She’s always one step ahead, as we scale to ensure we don't skip a beat, and she always puts our clients and their patients in the forefront of everything we do—finding solutions that fit the best interests of all."
Rachel joined MediRevv in 2008 as a graduate assistant while completing dual graduate degrees at the University of Iowa in Health Administration (MHA) and Business Administration (MBA). Aligning well with MediRevv’s culture and values from the onset, she was always seeking to comprehensively understand the organization, its clients, and most importantly, its people.
Following her graduation from both the MHA and MBA programs, she completed a prestigious administrative fellowship at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC), and she also served as UPMC’s administrative director for its internationally recognized transplant center. Rachel was not gone from Iowa long before returning in 2014 to pursue career opportunities closer to home.
Upon her return, MediRevv welcomed the familiar face with open arms, knowing what a tenacious learner and leader Rachel is. Initially, she served as MediRevv's operations manager, but transitioned into the role of director of extended business office operations and then, into her current position, vice president of revenue cycle services.
As vice president of revenue cycle services, Rachel oversees 350 employees in the Iowa City area, and she’s played a critical role in supporting and increasing MediRevv’s employee engagement score to 80% with her people-first approach to leadership. In her position as vice president, she’s also responsible for MediRevv’s client services and operations teams—who are both focused on delivering exceptional results to the business' clients and their patients. She continues to be a key driver of organizational success by fostering an environment of ongoing development and both personal and professional growth of MediRevv‘s people.
Amidst a demanding career, Rachel still finds time to actively give back to the local community. She serves as a board member for both Junior Achievement of Eastern Iowa and the Iowa City Chapter of the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women campaign. She also supports the next generation of healthcare leaders, serving on the Iowa MHA Quality Initiatives Committee and as an executive mentor for current MHA students.
Though Rachel did venture to Pennsylvania for a short stent, she now calls her native state, Iowa, home—where she and her husband, Israel, are raising their two young boys, Oliver and Sullivan.
