What is your favorite part about working at CHG? Wow. Where do I start? The people! I know that many people say that they work with the best people, but I truly do! I have the rare opportunity to serve and work beside the best of the best! Let me explain, starting with LT payroll. Almost every holiday falls on a payroll week, so this translates to no one being able to take time off during Thanksgiving or Christmas. Yes, that's right ‚Äî no time off. This amazing group of women never bats an eye or complains about this. Next, on to housing. When the company decided to stop paying out security deposits, this fabulous group only requested four checks in the first month. In less than five months, they reduced the total dollar amount of CompHealth's outstanding security deposits by¬†more than¬†$80,000. Yahoo! Last, but not least, licensing. This awesome group added $46,200¬†in one¬†month alone in GM by working to get licenses sooner, allowing the teams to book more days! This, on top of the passion and excitement that each person brings to the table each and every day, is why I say I truly work with the best of the best!
What is your most memorable experience at CHG? In July 2010, one of my dear friends and co-workers, Karrie Latturner, received the devastating news that her breast cancer was now in her brain, and she was given just weeks to live. Within a few days a huge party was planned in her honor. The day of the party, our entire building was decorated in pink! The food (for the most part) was pink, and everyone was wearing pink. Karrie loved every minute of it. She was overwhelmed that a company would put on such a major party for her and that so many people participated. This was only one of many things that CHG and CompHealth did for her. Most were done behind-the-scenes and only a few people knew about them. Our sweet Karrie lost her battle with cancer on her birthday in 2011, but her legacy will live on. A "Karrie (cherry) tree" was planted on the south side of our building in her name as well as for other employees who have lost their battles with cancer.
If someone asked you what you do, how would you answer them? I have the opportunity to make a difference in someone's life and to help provide the best care to people all over the United States!
Why did you choose to work at CHG? I had an employee who left to come to work for CompHealth. After a few months, she called me and told me I should really consider coming to work for them. A few months after that, she called me again and said that I really, really needed to put in my application and come to work for this company. So I did my research and put in my application. Best business decision I have ever made. I love the creative freedoms that I'm afforded. I love, love, love my job! Thank you, CompHealth, for believing in me!
What is your favorite core value at CHG? Putting People First! I have worked for two other large corporations that said this, but didn't do this. CHG walks the walk and talks the talk. It is a very unique culture for new people to grasp. I have heard new people say, "I was waiting for people to drop the act." But that never happens. This culture starts from Mike (CHG's CEO) and runs throughout our entire organization!
How do you know your work at CHG matters? I hear it, see it and feel it with our amazing leadership team ‚Äî they are very open, honest and transparent. This allows me the same privilege for my direct reports.
What do you like to do when you aren't at work? Anything with my family. I do love that I have the opportunity to work with my daughter and soon to be daughter-in-law (I have a nephew who also works here that I'm pretty fond of as well). It's like coming home each day.
What is your hidden talent? I can tie a maraschino cherry stem in a knot with my tongue. Now that's talent!
If you could choose your last meal, what would it be? OK, not caring about my arteries (like I do anyway): Crab, lobster (dripping in butter) and all kinds of shrimp (pasta, scampi, coconut, etc.), with garlic potatoes (no veggies) and a diet Dr. Pepper (Duh, I work at CompHealth). For dessert, cheesecake or licorice (black or red).
What five things would you take to a deserted island? My family, Diet Dr. Pepper (again, I work at CompHealth), a laptop so I can look at KSL.com for all the best deals, a fishing net to catch crab, lobster and shrimp and a cruise ship to take us on vacation and back home!
In a movie about your life, who would you choose to star as you? It's a toss-up between Lucille Ball and Bette Midler. OK, you can stop laughing now!
