What is your role at HR?
As the Business Intelligence & Data Analytics Manager, I am responsible for processing tracing and chargeback data from distributors, submitting GPO sales reports, modifying the CRM for the Sales team, and more recently we have implemented Power BI which will allow us to pull data from our various systems (SASY, CRM, QAD, Thrive, etc.) into a central reporting application that will provide management with better insight into the organization.
How long have you been working at HR?
A little over a year and a half
What is the most challenging part of your job?
I worked for over 16 years in the home remodeling industry, so switching to the health care industry has been a challenge.
Has there been a favorite moment for you while at HR?
Shortly after I started, we had a pumpkin carving contest. I was new, so I assumed everyone took the contest seriously. I painted the pumpkin blue and put glasses on it to represent Vision 2022. It was a pretty cool pumpkin. But apparently, I went overboard, because the judges thought that Colby (our President) made the pumpkin, so it was disqualified! 🙁 To make things worse, Colby actually won, felt bad I was disqualified and ending up giving me the prize! It was awkward at the time, but looking back now it makes me laugh.
Describe HR in three words?

I enjoy spending time with my family, we have two daughters and a son, as well as being outdoors, exercising, reading, and traveling.
