#IAmGalen: Thanksgiving 2017 Edition

#IAmGalen: Thanksgiving 2017 Edition

Thanksgiving is a time to come together and reflect on all that we are grateful for in our lives. We asked our Galeneers what they were thankful for this year, here’s what they had to say:

“I am thankful to have found Galen because we are working together to create something that has never been done for MEDITECH customers. It’s scary and exciting to finally see clinicians use the tools I’ve created and designed. I am also thankful for IPA and dry shampoo. . .because bangs.”
Kelly Del Gaudio, Principal Consultant 

“For all the individuals working at our clients and all our Galeeners, working hard to improve our healthcare system.  I am thankful for the smart, dedicated and driven people I have the privilege to work with every day.”
Matt Woodside, Vice President, Professional Services

“I am thankful for the continued opportunity to work for an AMAZING company with some of the most intelligent people in the HIT industry.  I get to work remotely and travel to clients as needed.  I have made some great friends and lasting relationships with some of my former clients.  When we (Galen Consultants) work with clients we do not just drop in, state what the client needs to do and leave.  We become a part of that their team.  Other companies do not foster that. I am also Thankful for my 3 beautiful grandchildren!! The best love you can have.”
Kim Baxter, Senior Consultant

“I am thankful that I have a job where I feel like I can make contributions to improving healthcare. Although the work I am doing presently in data migrations and data archival is quite removed from the front line of patient care, I feel good knowing that the exacting work my team does behind the scenes serves to ensure complete and accurate data for providers to access.”
-Elise Brault, Senior Consultant

“Personally, I am thankful for my improving health.  Over the past few years health issues have interfered with work and my personal life. This year things really started improving and I am excited about the positive momentum.  Professionally, I am thankful for the seemingly limitless talent we Galeneers collectively possess and continue to amass.  I have gained more knowledge and tackled more challenges in my three years at Galen than any other period in my professional life.  I can approach a challenge with confidence knowing that, if I cannot resolve it myself, I have a cadre of talented folks to back me up.”
-Billy Banick, Technical Consultant

“This year I am thankful for family and friends and good health. For family and friends who are faced with sickness and disease, I am thankful for advances in medicine and treatments that are evolving daily.”
Julia Snapp, Managing Consultant, Epic Services

“It’s been a transformative year at Galen with the general availability of VitalCenter Online. Perhaps there have been more long nights than normal, but it’s been worth it because the people I work with are amazing and our clients deserve great software. So, I am thankful for colleagues that care about the quality of their work and being a member of the team fun, thankful for family and friends who have kept me happy and grounded, thankful for leadership that cares about doing the right thing, and thankful for clients who trust us as partners, not simply another vendor.”
Michael Tamlyn, Principal Software Architect, Engineering Manager

“Definitely thankful for friends, family, and holiday sales on electronics and games this year. Yay deals!”
Dan Williams, Technical Consultant

“I am thankful for the patience and understanding that everyone has in these chaotic times. Many people are under pressure and have more work to do than they can possibly manage, but still take the time to help out, or at the very least are understanding when things take longer than they should. #Teamwork”
Matt Hoover, Lead Technical Consultant

“I’m thankful for a job that gives me the flexibility to spend time with my family over the holidays. I’m also thankful for working with a company that recognizes my hard work and allows me the opportunity to work on new and exciting projects.”
Carolina Velasquez, Senior Technical Consultant

“I am thankful for the entire Galen family that is always there for me both professionally and personally. From project collaboration, and learning something new every day, to the support I felt when I got married this summer; the Galen connection is unmatched by any company that I have ever worked for. Galen is my family; and I am forever thankful for all the love, and the pursuance of greatness that Galen inspires! I am honored to be a part of Galen, and looking forward to another year of growth together!!”
Kristie Mitchell, Senior Consultant

“I am thankful for the opportunity to work for a company who wholeheartedly supports and cares about its employees.  I am thankful for my family, wife and two crazy, wonderful children. I am thankful to be working in a challenging, rewarding profession and have a great group of friends to unwind with. I am thankful to have a million more reasons why I’m thankful.  Happy Thanksgiving All, Gobble Gobble!!”
Matt Leyva, Senior Consultant
