Elizabeth Douge has extensive hands-on experience in both sides of the Workers’ Compensation industry. She began her career in Workers Compensation initially representing medical providers for the first 3 years, and has spent the last 6 years representing insurance carriers against liens. Her previous experience as a Lien Representative for medical providers, and aggressive defense tactics has shown to produce results pleasing to clients. She is an aggressive negotiator and has spent a significant amount of time dealing with SIU/fraud files. During her time as a Lien Representative she established a positive reputation at the Workers Compensation Appeals Board which laid the ground work for her transition to the Defense side. She has created positive relationships and contacts including Lien Claimant supervisors which are incredibly important when dealing with hard to close files. She is a highly motivated individual in all aspects of life; and extremely passionate about her career. In her spare time Ms. Douge enjoys horseback ridding, snowboarding, and spending time with her family.
Lea’s career at Gilson Daub began as a Staff Assistant to the Lien Department. Little did she know that her 12 years experience in telephone collections and AR management representing a myriad of medical practices, in conjunction with her experience as a hearing representative before the Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board, would be her training in medical and legal terminology that has proven to be advantageous in her current career. In life, her biggest win is her family. Her two sons are her motivation to strive for excellence in all she does, both professionally and personally.
