I started 10 years ago in October 2009 in Outbound CS. Previously, I’d done outside sales for UPS and had worked in a call center back in college, but I had no medical background. I hit the floor and tried to make an impression. I applied for, and was accepted to, a role onsite with Houston Methodist. I worked there for about 2.5 years as an onsite, team lead, and then Project Coordinator, before returning to PFS Corporate. Under Steve’s mentorship, I began to grow into the Project Manager role. In addition to Methodist, I ended up as PM or PC or Adena, SCL, St Lukes, Kootenai, Saint Francis, Centegra, Edward Elmhurst, Boca, and Baptist. I benefitted from learning the back end of CUBS, SQL, and the various processes that make PFS work, and I tended to keep a closer tie to operations in order to be more effective as a PM. In May of 2018, I began working directly with operations, and in August of 2018, I was promoted to Director. Since then, my responsibility has been the 300+ CSRs, leaders, strategy, tactics, and forward thinking. Leadership development has become a major focus of mine over the last 18 months, and we created the IDEAL Training as a vehicle to develop leaders within PFS with the right mindset and skillsets to take PFS Group to the next levels.
