Aleah Schutze knew from a young age that she wanted to pursue a career in healthcare and obtained a Master’s Degree in Public Health. Her decision to attend law school was born out of an altruistic desire to help more people by helping healthcare entities fulfill their individual missions. Continuing to build her healthcare acumen, Aleah spent three years as the Associate General Counsel and Deputy General Counsel for Res-Care, Inc. (now BrightSpring Health Services), the largest diversified health and human services provider in the U.S. In that role, she gained experience in providing residential services to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, as well as home care, behavioral health, rehabilitation services, and other health-related support services. As a result, Aleah developed a more in-depth understanding of the issues healthcare entities face from a business, as well as legal, standpoint.
Since joining Steptoe & Johnson, Aleah continues to be inspired as she helps clients navigate ever-changing healthcare regulations, structure and document complex contracts and transactions, and advise on licensure and public and private payor requirements.
Clients appreciate Aleah’s practical, business-like approach as she works with them to evaluate risks, advises them on regulatory requirements, and recommends courses of action.
