CEAP & CWCA Certified | Administrative Assistant III, Information Systems
I have been in the administrative support profession for almost 30 years with a focus on supporting Information Technology areas. I currently support the Director of IS Operations at SelectHealth, where I am just celebrating my 9-year anniversary. SelectHealth’s Mission is ‘Helping people live the healthiest lives possible.’ I am proud to have a career with such a wonderful company.
I have been working closely with Office Dynamics International for almost 5 years and have obtained my CEAP and CWCA designations. 2017 will be my fourth attendance at the ODI Conference for Administrative Excellence. I am very grateful for the knowledge I have acquired while participating in all ODI trainings and conferences.
While not being an Administrative Assistant Extraordinaire, I enjoy international travel with my husband of 7 years, reading, and spoiling my fur babies rotten.
Why I love Office Dynamics and the conference: My first conference was in 2014: Collaborate | Create | Connect. I used all of my Star Achievement negotiation skills so I could attend my first conference. My only goal was to get something out of conference so I could justify going again. I was AMAZED by Joan Burge and the speakers. I felt as if every one of them was speaking directly to me. Everything was relevant to who I am and how I present myself in my profession. I returned to work and prepared a conference overview for my Director. He needed to know exactly why I was blown away, not because he required this, but I was so excited I wanted him to be excited for me as well. Needless to say, I am now on my fourth consecutive year! I have said this before and I will continue to say it, ‘Everything Joan Burge touches is golden.” I consider it an honor and privilege to have the opportunity to participate in ODI functions.
