What does your day-to-day job involve?
I spend my time working directly with new and existing clients. When working with new clients, my main focus is to learn about the organization, build a relationship, and discover ways that Galen can add value to their current and upcoming initiatives. With existing clients, I work with both the client team and the Galen team on current engagements, but also look for ways to build the relationship and expand our partnership. There’s not necessarily a typical day. Some days I’m traveling and onsite for client meetings; Other days, I’m in the office reaching out to new clinics and hospitals, working on proposals with our team, or providing web based demos. It’s always changing based on my clients’ needs, which I love!
What’s your favorite part of the job?
I love the people I work with- both on the client side and internally here at Galen. I’m fortunate to be able to meet and build relationships with some brilliant healthcare leaders. Our team members are rockstars, so I love being able to walk into a client meeting and know that we can make a difference to their projects. Plus, the Galen team is such a fun group. We definitely believe in the work hard, play hard mentality. You’re guaranteed a good time if you find yourself out with a group of Galeneers!
What are three adjectives that you think describe the culture at Galen?
Collaborative, Innovative, FUN
What’s the most important thing you’ve learned from working at Galen?
This is more than just a job…This is a family. Everyone on the team is willing to go above and beyond to help each other in a professional and personal sense. Many of us work remotely, but you would never guess it. We are constantly communicating as a team, participating in fantasy football leagues, Skype happy hours, etc. I’ve been fortunate to work for some wonderful companies in the past, but the Galen culture is definitely something special.
Looking into the future, what are you most excited about?
Galen is a very innovative company and constantly keeps a strong sense of what’s going on in the industry. As healthcare initiatives continue to evolve, I’m excited to see how we continue to adapt to the market. We have some of the smartest people I’ve ever met, and they develop incredible solutions that are relevant to the focus of the industry.
