KING OF PRUSSIA, PA (July 31, 2013) — As an invited speaker to the recent Philadelphia SmartCEO’s Brava! awards gala, MedRisk’s CEO Shelley Boyce was prepared to honor this year’s recipients. What she didn’t expect, however, was that she would take home SmartCEO’s highest honor.
Boyce, along with two other CEOs, was inducted into the Brava! Hall of Fame during the ceremony. The Hall of Fame is designed to create a community of female leaders in the Philadelphia region who have made significant strides in mentorship and business development. Hall of Fame induction announcements are kept secret until the Brava! Awards ceremony.
A 2010 Brava! award winner, Boyce was also recently featured in Philadelphia SmartCEO’s July 2013 cover story. The article traces MedRisk’s rise from Boyce’s conceived business idea to a leading managed care company specializing in the physical rehabilitation of injured workers.
Boyce, who earned her bachelor’s degree in nursing from the University of Virginia (UVA) and her MBA from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, fulfills her commitment to educating the next generation of leaders by chairing both UVA’s School of Nursing Advisory Board and Wharton’s Entrepreneurship Advisory Board. She also serves on the boards for the Children’s Scholarship Fund Philadelphia and the Workers’ Compensation Research Institute (WCRI).
