Kim Barron

Q: Where did you grow up?

Warrensburg, NY – it is a small town within the Adirondack Park in Upstate New York.  Just five miles northwest of beautiful Lake George.  It is also home of the world’s largest garage sale which takes place in late September.

Q: Where did you go to college?

I earned my Bachelor’s in Business Administration from Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts in North Adams, MA.

Q: What are your favorites?

Food: Classic Italian!

Movie: I don’t often get the time to sit and watch an entire movie but A League of Their Own, Top Gun, and yes Elf – I will watch every time.

Musicians: I am a fan of all genres – but a few of my trending favorites are Ashley McBryde, Old Dominion, and Lake Street Dive.

Destination: Any beach destination will not disappoint me!

Q: What do you like to do outside of work?

Outside of work, I spend most of my time active and on adventures with my kids, family, and friends! We love being outside and all of the activities that our seasons bring. When the snow falls we enjoy skiing, snowmobiling, and snowshoeing. When the weather is warmer we love being on the water, swimming, and riding bikes or taking a hike!

Q: What kind of work does your company do in 340B and what makes it stand out?

Hudson Headwaters 340B is a Third-Party Administrator (TPA) that specializes in supporting FQHCs and Hospitals. Our services also include mock HRSA audits, referral capture and other 340B consulting. As one of the first TPA’s to manage contract pharmacies, we understand how to support our clients and deliver unparalleled service and results. As a wholly owned subsidiary of Hudson Headwaters Health Network, our 340B program management has been trusted by our parent company and our clients across the country for the past 20 years!

Q: Why did you choose to work in the 340B space?

I have now been in the 340B space for over 11 years, all with Hudson Headwaters 340B. The first position that I took was based on a recommendation from a family friend. I believed in the organization, the opportunity, and the program and the rest is history. The 340B program is so important to covered entities and the patients they serve within their communities. Working for an organization that has remained committed to helping to preserve and protect the program is why I continue to stay in the 340B space.

Q: What advice do you have for a young professional who has recently launched a career in the 340B space?

Always be willing to learn and grow your network!! The 340B program is complex and every changing – there is always something new to learn or someone new to meet within 340B!
