- Have you had any other roles at Favorite?
I started my career at Favorite 13 years ago as a Coordinator on the Contracts and Rates Administration team. I was eventually promoted to Assistant Manager, then Manager, and now Director.
- What is it like working at Favorite?
It can be fast-paced, but I love being able to learn something new every day.
- What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?
My team! I have the most loyal and reliable team by my side. I can count on them for anything and trust that they get it done right!
- How do you think your role at Favorite makes a difference within the company and the healthcare industry as a whole?
It starts with us. We set up everything that connects with all the departments across the company.
- What lessons have you learned while working in the healthcare industry during COVID19, personally or professionally?
Change is never-ending. Just when you think things are going to slow down, it starts back up again.
- What keeps you motivated when times are tough
I work with a great group of people! We get through challenges together.
- Tell us what makes you unique! What do you enjoy doing outside of work? Any hobbies or interests?
I enjoy concerts and am so excited they are starting again! I like watching all sports, particularly K-State, Chiefs, and Royals games. I play volleyball at least a couple of nights a week, sand volleyball during the summer, and indoor in the winter. I enjoy being crafty and do random art projects when I find the time. I always love spending time with family and friends.
- How would you describe your team?
THE BEST! They are willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done right. They always put in the extra effort.
- What is one of your favorite memories while working at Favorite?
Some of my favorite memories are from when we were all able to get together prior to 2020 – Favorite Friday’s, holiday parties, Royals games, National Sales Meetings, mid-year meetings, our annual Halloween costume contest, and the American Royal. I also loved our all-company meetings where we fit in one room and had a potluck! Those are just some of my favorite memories!
