Arden Hammel

Chief Business Development Officer

Arden Hammel joined LBS in 2010.  She was looking to work from home after a battle with breast cancer.  She quickly moved up in the company and joined our leadership team in 2011.  Arden has a BA in Finance from the University of Iowa (Go Hawkeyes) and over 20 years of experience in Finance, Marketing and Business Development.  She brings valuable expertise from competitive, profit-driven industries.  That expertise helps support the development of profitable healthcare models for providers in private practice. 

Arden lives on an acreage near Maquoketa, Iowa with her husband, Jon and son, Dillon.  She loves working in her gardens (flower and vegetable), fishing in their pond, and sitting by the campfire.  In the late summer/early fall, you will find her canning fruits and vegetables so that her family can enjoy their garden all year.  In addition to this, Arden has recently discovered a love for her Peloton Bike. Most mornings you will find her riding her bike that goes nowhere, while taking a class with her favorite instructor, Coach Little. 

As a survivor of breast, ovarian and cervical cancer, Arden enjoys educating women and volunteering.  She volunteers for the Susan G. Komen Foundation, the Normaleah Ovarian Cancer Institute, the VA Outreach Center and her local Domestic Violence Shelter.  Each of these organizations holds a very special place in her heart.

Arden will tell you that her favorite part of her job is business development.  She loves to help providers grow their business just as much as she loves to help LBS grow.  She also loves the relationships that she develops throughout this process.
