BIOGRAPHY

Roxane Battle

As Vice President of Advocacy and Community at Sanvello Health, a UnitedHealth Group Ventures tele-health company, I tell stories that help people feel better.

Sanvello provides covered mental health services for 40 million people and has the #1 app for stress, anxiety and depression with 3.7+million subscribers.

“Checking in with Roxane Battle”, a recurring video feature appears though the  Sanvello app.

As a speaker, I present to groups all over the country,  including Apple Inc. employees,, COVID-19 front line responders, human resource managers, faith-based and networking groups.

I focus on helping people develop a personal plan to build resiliency and find joy in life, especially during times of transition.

Before coming to Sanvello, I spent 20+ years pursing my passion as a journalist and writer, including work as an Emmy-nominated television news anchor and reporter for NBC Minneapolis, CBS and FOX.
I was named an Architect of Change on mariashriver.com and have been featured in Working Mother and Ebony national magazines, and have made numerous podcast, television and radio guest appearances.

A Minnesota native, I earned my undergraduate degree in journalism from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities, and completed my master’s degree in journalism at the University of Missouri-Columbia. I wrote and sold my first manuscript, a self-help memoir; Pockets of Joy: Deciding to Be Happy, Choosing to Be Free (Whitaker House 2017), which became a Top 100 Amazon best seller in multiple categories.

I call the Minneapolis Chain of Lakes home, have an adult son, own a pair of roller skates and make a mean mac and cheese, apple crisp and seafood gumbo.
