JFM was created in part to honor our fallen soldier -  our son, Taylor Camron Veroni.  He was awesome.  And, he would have wanted us to live our full and passionate lives.  So after 30 plus years in corporate America - we decided to quit.  We want to be able to find time to have fun, be with our extended family and still provide for our lives, so we created this consulting company.  We travel extensively and offer our services to every thing from small companies to large corporations most often for short term engagements where we can find value, offer our services and enjoy the life we are called to live.  

  • I am Julie, and I was in executive positions in both provider and health plan organizations.  
  • Scott was a information officer and self taught data guru.  

Together we believe that we can find companies who need assistance during this time of health care reform and provide them with our services.  Contact us if we can help you.
