What do you think is the most important HMA Core Value?
If I had to choose one, it would be respect.I’m a big believer that our differences are what keep things interesting in life; demonstrating respect when people have a different opinion, thought or way of doing things is really important to me.
I am really proud of the personal relationships that I have with friends and family–it takes me a while to develop strong bonds but I’m proud of the fact that the close relationships I have are ones I will have for a lifetime.Professionally, I’m proud of the fact that much of what I have learned while being employed with HMA is self-taught. I have had many roles within the organization since I started here in 2001 and I feel like I have the willingness to take on things that are outside of my comfort zone and find ways to get them done. I’ve learned that asking questions and making mistakes are the greatest opportunities to learn the most. I’d like to think that the people I work with know that I’m approachable and open to discussing concerns and questions because I’ve been in their shoes at one time or another.
