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.

Vera Whole Health is a viable expression of who I am and what I love to do.  Working at Vera allows me to pursue deeper meaning in my daily work. I feel a sense of purpose every day, knowing that we are all working together for the common goals of esteeming people and creating a health revolution. I feel incredibly lucky to have found a healthcare company that truly values and supports both patients and staff, while encouraging everyone to listen and to be heard!

Feeling a genuine sense of connection and shared purpose with the people around me inspires me to bring my best self to the table. I have been lucky to work as part of several different teams at Vera, and I have been consistently impressed by the authentic, fun-loving, and hard-working people I work with. These people inspire me to do my best!

Most of my free time is spent gardening, writing papers for my master’s degree program, and enjoying good food with friends. And I love a warm summer rain…

Vera Whole Health is a viable expression of who I am and what I love to do.  I got into the medical field 14 years ago so that I could help people improve their health.  Working for Vera, I feel I am actually able to help my patients more than I have anywhere else.  Our providers, office manager and support staff work hand in hand to give our patients the greatest experience we can; I love that we all work together and are mindful to reach for similar goals.

It brings me joy to see expressions of happiness and gratitude after I have been able to help others in some way. This encourages me and inspires me to stay humble and do my best. I am grateful for the opportunity to work with such an amazing group of people here in Flagstaff. We make a great team and all work together like rockstars!!  I couldn’t ask for a better team.

I love to ride my horses and hike with my dogs.  Living in Flagstaff gives me the opportunities to take advantage of both.

Vera Whole Health is a viable expression of who I am and what I love to do.  I love being able to help people and provide a safe space for them toexpress themselves. I believe everyone deserves to be heard, treated equally, and acknowledged. I love being the Patient Service Representative (PSR) at the Springbrook clinic because I am the first person patients come in contact with. It’s important to me that they immediately get a feel for how they will be treated in the clinic when they meet me. I’m thankful to be on a team that shares my values of diligence, patient oriented care andteamwork while demonstrating acceptance, mindfulness, empathy and GRIT!

When I’m not at work I enjoy dancing, concerts and gatherings like potlucks, sport events, movies and marathons as well as outdoor activities likeswimming, jogging, playing sports and going on hikes.  I have a special fondness for Mexican food and Will Ferrell and I especially love spending time with my family. It is a blessing to have them in my life and I appreciate their support and encouragement.
