Work

How long have you worked at Vericred?

I started in May 2021 and time is flying by!

How would you describe Vericred’s culture?

I love that everyone has and is working towards a common and important goal—we’re all passionate about creating the pathway for the benefits industry to digitally transform. I also love the inclusive and diverse nature of Vericred’s culture. It’s a really welcoming environment

What do you like most about your job and working at Vericred?

Well, it’s three things.

  1. Work-life balance is a real thing! It’s refreshing to be a part of a company that truly wants you to take care of yourself and your family first.
  2. I love that I get to dig in deep with customers. To be part of their roadmap, thinking about the future and how we can help to enable real transformation to their growth strategy. It’s important not only to our customers but to the industry overall. And that’s extremely fulfilling. 
  3. The importance of our work. Vericred plays an essential role in our industry, but a lot of people might not realize how much impact we make. We enable businesses to provide an easy, digestible way to understand benefits, increase efficiency, design new innovative products, improve the user journey and more.

What’s your day-to-day like on the sales team?

My day-to-day life is always interesting and full of new information. What is great about being in sales is that not only do I have the pleasure of developing new relationships externally, but I interact with so many different functions at Vericred. I am constantly learning so much, expanding my skill set every day, which is a huge bonus for me.

You started during the pandemic. How was the remote onboarding process?

Onboarding virtually didn’t feel new to me given the remote work environment many of us were already living due to Covid. It’s great to have so many virtual tools that make it easy to meet and collaborate with the team. I feel like I already know a lot of my coworkers pretty well, even though I haven’t met anyone in person yet!  

Life

Favorite activity when you’re not working?

I love to go to live sporting events. The whole experience– the history behind it, the passion, the traditions, etc. I also like to cook and travel and try new foods too!

Favorite place you’ve traveled?

One of my favorite places so far was Greece. I spent time on a boat for eight days. We sailed with a few other boats all around the smaller islands, ate incredible food and enjoyed the most amazing views. We really got to experience the great people and culture! 

Interesting fact about yourself…. Go!

I am a living kidney donor! Maybe I can’t change the world but I changed one person’s world and that was my sister. And we’re both going strong for six years now! I may not have cured my sister’s lupus, but her quality of life has improved dramatically. She is probably one of the most impressive young women I know! The choice to do something for someone else is such a joyful feeling.
