As we get ready for what is sure to be a challenging fall and winter, CCF is buoyed by the addition of two terrific women who joined our team on August 10th. CCF’s work continues to grow, both in our core Finish Line state project that has expanded into a network of 22 states, and our Early Childhood portfolio.

Margaux Johnson-Green has joined our staff as a state health policy analyst. In that role, she will be working with many of our state partners on improving health coverage for low-income children and families. Prior to joining CCF, Margaux served as a Bill Emerson National Hunger Fellow where she worked on anti-hunger and anti-poverty programs at the Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee and the National Women’s Law Center. She has also held several health-focused internships in North Carolina and at national organizations in Washington, D.C. Margaux is a graduate of the Gillings School of Global Public Health at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a BSPH in Health Policy and Management. We are delighted to have Margaux join our Finish Line team!
Our second hire is not a new face to CCF – Alexandra (Allie) Corcoran spent two summers interning with CCF and we are delighted to welcome her back as a Research Associate. During her internships, Allie developed an interest in Section 1115 waivers, enrollment approaches and administrative burdens – many of our favorite topics to tackle. Alexandra earned her MA in Philosophy and Public Affairs on a Fulbright Scholarship at University College Dublin after graduating from Haverford College with a degree in Political Science and Spanish. Her thesis focused on “Mobilizing Medicaid: Understanding Advocacy Group Action at the State Level.” We are delighted to have her back as a “utility research infielder” on the CCF team.
We are also making one more staff change. CCF’s work on Early Childhood has significantly expanded so Maggie Clark, a senior state health policy analyst, will now focus full time on that portfolio alongside of Elisabeth Burak, CCF’s faculty lead.
