The Medix spotlight highlights teammates across the company who show unique individuality, embrace challenges and search for new opportunities every day! This week we’re checking in on Regina in Chicago, sharing insights on her awesome and unique position at Medix!
Please explain your current role at Medix.
I am the Learning & Development Manager for our internal employees at Medix. I am responsible for creating and implementing new learning initiatives within the organization and helping to maintain consistency of current training programs from office to office.
What brought you to this role?
Back in 2008, I started recruiting in our healthcare division helping to staff talent at one of our largest clients (at the time) in the Chicago market. I moved into an Account Executive role in August 2009 for our western suburb territory and sold to our healthcare clients for five and a half years. In 2012, I began helping trail blaze our Learning & Development Department as a sales trainer. In January of 2014, I moved in Learning and Development full-time and have enjoyed helping to create the training opportunities that Medix has today. Getting to work in the flagship office, I was lucky to have so many knowledgeable resources around me. I’m passionate about creating the same type of learning opportunities for Medix employees that will allow them to grow in their individual aspirations.
What made you decide to work for Medix?
The opportunity to be a part of a growing company was so exciting to me. I loved the idea of building long-term value within an organization and seeing where it could take me. The sky was the limit!
What are the characteristics young professionals need to possess to be successful at Medix?
Someone who is determined, driven, organized and has a passion to help others will feel right at home among the successful family at Medix.
When you’re not working hard at Medix, what are your hobbies?
Dancing around the house with my two sons, William & Charlie. They light up my world! I love to swim, the farther the better! I love to paint, make pottery, and get out to dinner with friends. I wish there were more hours in the week!
It’s back to school season! What was your favorite class in school? Why?
History. This was definitely an acquired class for me as the years went on. I developed a strong curiosity to find out the ‘Why’s’ and ‘How’s’ of things. I believe history truly gives a great perspective on our modern world today.
