Q: What has been the most challenging part of your transition here at TazWorks?
A: Learning the ins and outs of our software! I have quite a bit of experience working in the screening industry before I came to TazWorks, and I was somewhat familiar with the system. What I didn’t realize was just how comprehensive and broad our system is. The depth of what clients can do within InstaScreen was both impressive and daunting when I first started. I’m still always learning!
Q: How would you describe your job at TazWorks to a friend or family member?
A: That’s hard question because everyone on the support team wears a lot of hats. As far as my personal job responsibilities, I’d say I’m a combination of customer service representative, system training liaison and technical support provider. I also enjoy helping research consumer disputes for our partners.
Q: What have you enjoyed most about working at TazWorks so far?
A: My coworkers. It’s been so much fun getting to know all the funny, interesting and talented people I work with. Last June, I moved back to Utah with my husband after being in Seattle for nine years. I have really enjoyed building such a strong personal and professional relationship with so many of my coworkers.
Q: Having worked in various capacities within the customer service industry, how would you define customer service?
A: I think customer service, or at least good customer service, is defined as individuals that constantly strive to find solutions to problems, answers to questions and assistance whenever needed. I like to make sure I go above and beyond and solve the problem without causing further headaches for the customer.
Q: What does a day away from TazWorks look like for you?
A: I tend to have a bit of wanderlust. I love traveling and exploring exciting new places, which is one of the things I love most about Utah. I’m never more than a short drive from some of the country’s most incredible national parks and mountain resorts. Whenever we get the chance, my husband and I love to take our dogs and just get outside. Although I must admit I’m a huge Seahawks and Sounders fan, so when they have a game, you’ll find me glued to my TV at home cheering (screaming) for my team.
Q: If you had to narrow it down to three words, how would you describe yourself?
A: I’d say I’m patient, or at least I make every effort to be. I also think I’m a very persistent person and am driven to overcoming any new challenges. I also feel like I’m a caring and empathetic person. I always want to solve everyone’s problems and make them happy.
Q: Tell us something about yourself that might surprise people.
A: Back in my younger years, I was a bit more daring than I am now—specifically when it came to my hair. I’m confident that I circulated through just about every length, color and style of hair imaginable. A few other fun facts: I’ve never had a cavity, I spent a year interacting with lots of animals while volunteering at a wildlife rehab clinic and I used to do some pet sitting for a couple of Seahawks players.
