Profession: Healthcare IT- Epic Stork Nursing Informatics Specialist

How many years in the industry? 9 years

1.  What drew you to SquadBuilders? 

Everyone I talked to was super helpful. SquadBuilders has been amazing in the fact that they found a contract that was exactly what I did before and knew I enjoyed immensely.  My husband told me that when I had that earlier job I was the happiest he has ever seen me.  The fact that when a contract opportunity came up and they thought of me first means that these people care and are actually invested in me and not just my skills.

2. What do you like most about working with SquadBuilders? 

The people that I work with drew me in and keeps me excited about my position.  That includes SquadBuilders staff as well as the client staff!  I know that if I have any issue, they have been and will be there to fix it as quickly as possible and this includes weekends.  One time, I had a question about something on a Friday evening at 8 pm and my account representative answered me within 10 minutes even though he should have been enjoying his weekend.  He went above and beyond to make sure I felt happy and comfortable with my service from SquadBuilders.

3. What do you like to do outside of work? 

I enjoy spending time with my husband, dog and family!  I am so lucky to have the best support system to allow me to travel and keep my home life in order.  I love to spend time over at my family’s house as well and going out adventuring with my husband.  We enjoy trying new places we have never been which includes restaurants and places we have not tried.  I am a foodie and I have certain friends that cook together and try to tackle new recipes as well as making sure our manicures and pedicures stay unique.

4. What is your favorite part of working in Healthcare IT? 

My favorite part of Healthcare IT is that it is different everyday.  When I come into work I have no idea what will happen.  I could have a physician call me and there is a patient care issue I have to take care or I could have a nurse and/or physician call/email me that they would “love to implement this."  I love the spontaneity of the job!  This is how I am able to help patients that come to the hospital get the most excellent care.
