In our Meet the Care Coordinators series, you’ll get to meet one of our Care Coordinators on the LGBTQ+ Health team at least once a month. Our team is queer and trans-led, and most of our care coordinators are in the LGBTQ+ community ourselves.
Our Care Coordinators deeply understand and share many of the unique challenges, joys, and experiences that our members have. We hope that getting to know a little more about us and seeing our faces will inspire you to reach out and use our services, knowing exactly who is guiding you through your healthcare experience.
Roslyn, Care Coordinator
Pronouns: She / Her
Where do you live and/or where are you from? Where do you consider home?
“I currently live in Aurora, Colorado.”
What are your hobbies and interests, things you like to spend time doing, outside of work?
“When I’m not working I like to spend quality time with my partner and cat. I really like to focus on self care when I have free time. I also really like to do my nails and makeup even when I have no plans or reason to. When I’m not painting my face or nails you can usually find me curled up on the couch with a good video game.”
Can you tell me about why you do this work, why you care, and what inspired you to join Included Health?
“I’ve had jobs in the past that I’ve been successful at but never really found something I was really passionate about. I joined Included Health because I saw a space where my experience as a queer trans woman would not only be celebrated and acknowledged but also treated as an asset. My favorite part of this job is probably the member interactions. I really like making each interaction personalized.”
What is an LGBTQ+ or trans organization, project or who is an LGBTQ+ or trans artist, singer, or leader who inspires you or has taught you something?
“One of my biggest inspirations is probably Trixie Mattel from Rupaul’s Drag Race. She grew up poor and marginalized and was able to become one of the most successful queens from the franchise. She also works hard to raise money for different charities on multiple platforms. I think the main reason I identify with Trixie is that we both come from poor conservative backgrounds and we’re both successful queens regardless.”
What’s your favorite movie, show, or book? Why?
“I can’t pick just one. I really like the show Shrill. It shows plus size women being beautiful and successful, and what that feels like stepping into that space as a plus size woman who doesn’t feel beautiful or successful. I also love Star Trek Discovery, the current season has two queer couples and a nonbinary character. They also have a lot of strong female characters and I honestly end up crying at least once an episode.”
