Mehochko began her professional career in the insurance industry as an accomplished sales representative at Metropolitan. She quickly transitioned to the financial services industry working at a wholly owned subsidiary of NCR, the world’s leader in consumer transaction technology. While there, Mehochko began to develop the connection between finance and corporate operations, ultimately developing and structuring large, complex financing alternatives for the business environment.
In 2001, Mehochko solidified her advancement into operations with her promotion to COO of the nation’s largest bankcard processor, Chase Merchant Services.

Over her eight years of leadership, Mehochko successfully transformed a division of First National Bank of Omaha into a highly successful and profitable business with increases in earnings (600 percent), revenue (127 percent), and gross margins (53 percent); all while overseeing FNMS’ evolution into a jointly owned independent company, and finally its sale to TSYS in 2011.
Going into business for herself as President of DMM Consulting in 2011, Mehochko used her advanced marketplace and business intelligence to provide her clients critical expertise, counsel, and strategic leadership.
Ultimately transitioning to StrategicHealthSolutions, LLC in April of 2015, Mehochko is using her vast experience in internal operations, business development, financial management and consulting services to oversee the company’s operating activities.
