Vera Whole Health is a viable expression of who I am and what I love to do. Connection is something I love to study and practice. I am fascinated by sociology and what brings people together. I love working at Vera because my passion for connecting and serving others is cultivated and celebrated within our company’s culture. Every day I get the chance to be invited into someone’s story. Beauty, struggle, joy, heartache and triumph are shared within a primary care setting and it is an honor to be able to listen and serve patients wherever they might be. I get to experience this magic alongside a great team too! One that not only loves the people we serve, but also each other. That makes me feel very blessed. I believe life is a gift and love is the point, Vera lets me practice that belief daily.

I am inspired by the power of healing. I want to serve, love and have empathy for our patients and care teams in hopes that my effort fosters a space for healing and miracles. When I’m not at work I find a lot of joy in going to farmers markets. They are like my own personal version of pixie dust. It always lifts my spirit and help me appreciate the beauty that is around me. Also, I can’t get enough of sailing the San Juan Islands! I go every summer and hope this year I will see a whale.

Vera Whole Health is a viable expression of who I am and what I love to do. My passion is connecting with people. Working at Vera allows me to do that everyday whether that is building relationships with our clients or solving problems with my coworkers. Vera is a mission focused company. When you get a group of talented people together that are aligned in their mission and goals it’s a pretty special thing.

My coworkers and teammates inspire me every day to be a better version of myself. They are passionate and kind and talented and they push me to do things I didn’t know were possible.

Nothing brings me joy quite like traveling and experiencing new places or new cultures. My goal is to visit each continent in the next couple years. Only a couple more to go.

Vera Whole Health is a viable expression of who I am and what I love to do. This motto is true for me in the sense that we’re all different and do things differently but it all comes back the desire to help others.

My son is the main reason I do the best I can do every day and is the best expression of who I am. If I want him to do his best I have to show what doing your best looks like. I love hanging out with him, going swimming and being with my best friends and their kids.

Vera Whole Health is a viable expression of who I am and what I love to do. I like the journey of building something new and Vera is in the process of bringing a whole new approach to health and wellness. I believe that health is supreme, and I am glad to be contributing to this journey of enhancing people’s quality of life by keeping them healthy.
 
Being a mother is what I love the most of all. I love to explore the outdoors with my children, research answers to their never ending questions and volunteer at their school.

Vera Whole Health is a viable expression of who I am and what I love to do. From an early age, my support system stressed the importance of working to be a positive agent of change for one’s community. Over the years, I have also come to adopt the principle that the most effective leader is one who seeks to authentically live out his/her values. When successful, such a leader empowers others to be their better self. With Vera, I have stumbled upon an organization where such values are cultured and valued. The icing on the cake is that Vera’s interest in creating a health revolution via blending high quality primary care with public/population health initiatives matches my professional passions.

As a primary care provider, I have come to know that each patient or individual really does have an amazing story. They are each a testament in resiliency and strength. These stories remind me that we are all in this life together and it is our duty and privilege to help each other along.

It may be deemed small or insignificant by others, but I am quite proud of my “hobby” of picking up litter in my community. I was born on Earth Day, and have thus, always had a love and kinship with nature. Picking up garbage when I’m out running or walking the dog is a simple, daily way for me to create a world that is more beautiful for myself and others.

Vera Whole Health is a viable expression of who I am and what I love to do.  For as long as I can remember I have had an innate desire to support people move towards what they want and encourage them to find happiness.  Esteeming people and listening with an empathetic ear feels second nature to me and I love to do it. I am inspired to do my best so that I can feel my best and offer my best to others. 

I’ve worked for Vera in several iterations, both as a coach and as a trainer when we had fitness studios and did onsite corporate wellness classes.  I love that the mission has not changed and has always centered around empowering and esteeming people as they make their journey towards wellness. I feel fortunate to work for a company whose mission supports people to live healthy and happy lives.   I love the people I work with and have never worked with such an amazing group of people!  Lucky me! 

I am most joyful when I am experiencing and appreciating nature and animals and continuing to learn and grow.  A spontaneous dance break also brings levity to my day 😉.

Vera Whole Health is a viable expression of who I am and what I love to do.  I’ve always had a passion for helping others and impacting peoples’ lives. Vera has allowed me the space to be who I am, while giving me the opportunity to connect with others. As a PSR, I enjoy being the first point-of-contact, because I help control the welcoming and warm environment patients walk into. I aim to ensure each patient has the best possible experience from the moment they step foot into the clinic and even beyond when they leave.

I love seeing the satisfaction on patients’ faces and their appreciation when I am able to help them, in either large or minuscule ways. I am thankful to work with a team who is continuously supportive, encouraging, compassionate and dedicated to delivering high-quality patient care!

I enjoy good company with family, friends and my dog. My hobbies include swimming, hiking, biking, and eating. Lastly, football season is my favorite season!

Vera Whole Health is a viable expression of who I am and what I love to do.  The values that are important to Vera are also very important to me in my personal life. Doing well, doing good, and loving those around me are things I valued way before I joined Vera, so it was a natural fit for me from the beginning. Since 9th grade I knew I wanted to be an Accountant. Every day at Vera I get to work with numbers and help others understand them. I can honestly say that I enjoy my work and the people I work with.

My family, friends, and coworkers inspire me to work hard and step outside of my comfort zone to become better. What also inspires me is seeing Vera’s growth throughout the years. It motivates me to do my best so that together we can really have a lasting positive impact on people’s lives.

In my free time I enjoy playing piano and singing in my church band. I love traveling and spending time with my friends and family. This year most of my time will go to studying for the CPA exam, which I hope to pass in the spring of 2018.

Vera Whole Health is a viable expression of who I am and what I love to do.  I’ve always focused on building relationships with people I work with.   Vera is all about relationships and bringing that concept to healthcare – where I think it has been a missing component.   To me, Vera is a great place to build relationships and help people do their jobs better!  Whether it’s providing systems or data for other teams or mentoring the people on my own team, I feel like I can be my best self when I’m helping others.

I love trivia and golf.   My team goes out to trivia and supports my habit with some friendly competition.   We have a small but active golf team that joins together and has a great time playing the links.

Vera Whole Health is a viable expression of who I am and what I love to do.  My passion is serving people. What better way to serve than to help people live healthier lives? The opportunity to be on the ground floor of a health revolution that puts people first was both intriguing and exciting. As a Client Service Coordinator, I get to work with client, clinic and field support personnel all dedicated to using their talents to make that revolution a reality.

With every new day comes new challenges, which keeps things interesting, keeps me learning and wanting to be my personal best. Knowing that I am helping to make a difference and am surrounded by others who feel the same way also inspires me to do my best. When you are part of a great team of people, all working towards the same goal like I am at Vera, loving what you do comes naturally.

In my free time, I enjoy entertaining family and friends, playing with my 2-year old grandson, baking and reading. Also, from April through September, there is a good chance you will find me at a Mariner’s baseball game with my husband. And for going on four years now, I have the privilege of using my love of serving and baking to help in our local food bank’s year-end fund raising event.
