#IAmGalen: Thanksgiving 2018 Edition

#IAmGalen: Thanksgiving 2018 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 for the opportunity to do something I love and with people I respect and care about.  I am thankful that I look forward to each work day. This year I’m especially thankful to be involved with growing a new part our business and working alongside my colleagues, mentors and clients who support each other as we learn and get stronger daily.   I’m thankful for the health and safety of my amazing family, which in today’s world I don’t take for granted any longer.  I’m also thankful that I have a million more reasons I’m thankful.  Happy Thanksgiving!!

Matt Leyva, Managing Consultant

In the wake of the fires that have occurred in California, I’m thankful for having a roof over my head and a safe place to live. I’m also thankful for the personnel who have dedicated their lives and their time to help the victims of the natural disasters.

Carolina Velasquez, Senior Technical Consultant

I’m thankful for my family everyday. But I am also thankful for my work family. I’ve become so close with some of my co-workers in the last few years, it’s hard to express. We share day to day updates on our kids, grandkids, pets, significant others, food and drink creations on a daily basis. We laugh, we complain, we congratulate and we commiserate. I LOVE our group text Cecil, Bec, Kavon and Christy. Can’t find those friends somewhere else.

Tracy Kimble, Lead Consultant

I am thankful for the opportunities that I have had since starting with Galen in 2011. Since then I have worked from coast to coast, with some amazing clients and co-workers who by the end of the project feel like family. The challenge(s) that each client faces may be different, but I am grateful to be part of the solution that the Galen team brings. It is humbling to work with and around such brilliant people.

Crystal Vervaecke, Lead Consultant

I am thankful for all the knowledge and support I receive from my Galen colleagues and friends. They always seem to be willing to lend a helping hand both personally and professionally.

Daphne Kothe, Consultant

I’m thankful for my Galen family since they encourage and inspire me with both my professional and personal growth.

Sara Whittaker, Consultant

I’m thankful in advance for the PTO/sick days that I’ll be approved to take to go skiing. I’m also thankful that Galen is full of ski buddies.

Missy Westland, Technical Consultant

I am thankful for the opportunity to work on real problems in healthcare with people who truly enjoy improving the lives of those around them.

Matt Hoover, Lead Technical Consultant

This year I am thankful for my friends and family.  With this job you get to see and meet a lot of diverse people.  As you get older, your circle tends to get smaller and smaller.  However, I have made some awesome friends through my travels and my circle continues to grow daily.  I am so very thankful for that. 

Kim Baxter, Senior Consultant

I am thankful for my family, friends, and good health!

I am thankful for the opportunity to use my experience to help organizations meet their strategic goals!

Becky Matias, Lead Consultant

I am grateful for the opportunity and flexibility that Galen has given me thus far so I can pursue my passions.  While working here I have been able to grow personally and professionally as well as help others do the same in business and in life.  We are not defined by where we work but I am proud to be a Galeneer while serving others.

Susan Gambino, Consultant

I am thankful for the wonderful team at Galen who is always willing to help out when I am in need. In addition to that, everyone is so charitable and I love our food and toy drives that we do every year!
