Chue Vang Selected for 40 Under 40

Congratulations to WellSpace Health’s Interim Chief Financial Officer, Chue Vang, on being selected by the Sacramento Business Journal as one of the region’s “40 Under 40.”

Chue first joined WellSpace Health in 2006 as an Accounts Payable Coordinator after graduating from California State University, Chico with degrees in business administration and accounting. Her role was typical of a college graduate finding her professional footing. She processed checks, reconciled accounts, and tracked expenditure reports.

But Chue would prove to be anything but typical – she is exceptional and her rise through the ranks demonstrated it in concrete terms. She was soon promoted to Accounting Supervisor and later joined an affordable housing team as a Senior Staff Accountant. She brought her housing experience back to WellSpace Health, rejoining us as a Senior Financial Analyst. In 2016 Chue was promoted to Controller, the Finance Team’s second-highest position, where she led day-to-day accounting and finance operations organization-wide. In 2020, after a nationwide search for a new CFO, Chue was promoted to lead the department she had joined fourteen years earlier.

Since becoming CFO she has helped the organization realign its business model in short order to weather the COVID-19 storm and has positioned the non-profit to EXPAND its community-based mission in the midst of a global pandemic that has wreaked havoc on traditional healthcare business models.

Chue is a consummate professional and the calm calculating financial expert every CEO wants and needs. WellSpace Health is honored to have her on our team.
