Appointee Profile: Jean Wilms


Jean has been appointed to the Advisory Council on Aging, and is in experienced executive with provider and health care expertise.

Jean lives in Johnson County with her husband and four rescue dog and has worked in health care for most of her life. Her background includes work with health insurers, Medicare and Medicaid. But when she became a caregiver for family members, she gained a whole new perspective on the gaps for both seniors and the caregivers. She also discovered that there are services available for seniors but most didn’t know about them.

She hopes that both her work and first-hand experience will be of service to Kansan seniors.
