I’ve been with Galen for nine and a half years. I am currently the Chief Operating Officer. In my role, I work most closely with the directors and managers of our Professional and Technical Services teams.
What brought you to Galen?
I was introduced to Galen by a colleague I met working on an Allscripts EHR Implementation project in Texas. I wasn’t really looking for anything new at the time, but said what the hell. I think I was employee #8 on the books. I wasn’t sure what I was actually getting myself into, but what a ride it’s been!
What do you like about the culture here?
I work with people I respect AND actually like being around. I laugh a lot. We have some pretty funny people here. They keep me entertained. Every. Single. Day.
What has been most unexpected about working here?
From the beginning I could see the founders of Galen had a particular vision for the company. Part of that vision was to hire incredibly smart people to do great things for our clients. Mission accomplished. Just when I think we can’t get any smarter, we find another person to add to the team and they take us up another notch. I work with some of the most intelligent and talented people that you will find anywhere.
What are you looking forward to as we continue to grow as a company?
I’m looking forward to all the new solutions we will be able to offer our clients. We are constantly evolving and adding to our expertise. It’s been rewarding to be a part of a company that can change when the needs of our clients change.
What achievement are you most proud of?
For me personally, finding a company I actually wanted to stay with this long is pretty incredible. I can get a little stir crazy. Through ups and downs, this is my home. I hope they’ll actually let me stay here until I retire.
Anything else you think is important for someone to know about Galen?
We really do want our clients to be successful. There is no better feeling I get than seeing messages from our clients about how we’ve made their life a little bit easier. We take great pride in all that we do. We care about our clients and each other. There is no better group you could possibly work with than the Galen team.
