Arnesha Green

Program Support Specialist

IHPC welcomed Arnesha to our team in September 2018. She brings a wealth of medical billing & customer service knowledge spending many years at St. Mary's of Michigan in Saginaw. When Arnesha isn't processing IHP claims, she enjoys attending sporting events or cooking & baking. Her dream career would be a massage therapist. I think we should have her test that out on the other staff. Arnesha states "Working for a program that genuinely cares about the well being of their community speaks volumes and motivates me to wake up and come to work. I like working for IHPC because of what it stands for.... Also, the staff is wonderful & are passionate about the work they contribute to in making this program a success."

Treya Dykstra-Swords

Outreach & Enrollment Specialist

tswords@ihpmi.org

Treya joined IHPC for a one year term as an AmeriCorps VISTA Member to assist the organization with Outreach & Enrollment activities and has stayed on to continue that work. Treya's favorite project has been calling all of the IHP members. She said her Spanish has always been pretty basic, as she lived in Guatemala for a year right after high school and hasn't practiced much since then. She really enjoys talking to people one-on-one and appreciates the patience of Spanish speakers with her learning process! Treya stated "IHPC has been a very nurturing environment for me. I began my AmeriCorps service year during the pandemic and still haven't met most of my coworkers. There are only seven of us and I've seen two in person. The people make any job, even if they aren't physically near you!" Treya is a big fan of mindfulness meditation. She is also a former silversmith and perpetual crafter.
