Perhaps the most decorated athlete out of Fortune's 2012 roster of Most Powerful Women, Boudreaux led her basketball team at Dartmouth to compete in three Ivy League Championships. During her four years at the school, between 1978 and 1982, she scored a whopping 1,933 points and made 1,635 rebounds for her team. As if being a basketball star didn't take up enough of the student-athlete's time, Boudreaux also managed to make it as an all-American shot-putter.

Boudreaux held her own off court as well. She received an MBA from Columbia Business School, and then climbed the corporate ladder at various health services companies. Now, she's the CEO of United HealthCare, a division of the larger UnitedHealth Group. Boudreaux belongs to an athletic family. Her husband, Terry Boudreaux was a leading scorer for the University of Georgia lacrosse team. Her sons, Christopher and Evan, both grew up playing sports.
