Capital and Harmony Select August's Corporate Star Performer

For the month of August, we’re happy and honored to announce that our next Corporate Star Performer is Sarah Hoffman, Senior Compliance and Credentialing Specialist for our travel nursing division, American Medical Traveler.  The AMT team may be small, but it is mighty!  Sarah works behind the scenes, keeping the job orders fresh, and our hard-working nurses credentialed and ready to go.  There are deadlines to meet, files to review, and a lot of data to sort through, but Sarah never fails to show grace under pressure while accomplishing these tasks!

A big part of Sarah’s work ethic stems from her athletic background.  As a personal trainer, fitness instructor, and athlete, she has team work and competition flowing through her veins. “She comes from an athletic background and certainly understands the effort and grind it takes to win a match, which can be seen in her everyday work,” Lou Downey, Account Manager, says. “Since she has started here, we have never missed a deadline in fulfilling a client’s order, and this speaks volumes about her relentless drive to get the job done!”  Sarah attributes this to her natural competitive nature, but we know it also has to do with her fantastic work ethic and attitude as well!

Sarah’s positive attitude is both admirable and contagious! It doesn’t take long getting to know Sarah before discovering how upbeat she is, and how much she loves to laugh.  But according to Sarah, when you work with such a great team, it’s easy to be in a good mood! “My favorite thing about my job is my team!” Sarah says. “Everyone here has such great and unique qualities, and they are all a pleasure to work with.”

Besides being such an effective Credentialing and Compliance Specialist, she is also our resident health and fitness guru in the office, full of energy and helpful advice.  In fact, she can even be spotted performing yoga moves in the hallway adjacent to her desk now and again, and she likes to break up the day by taking quick breaks to run the hallway stairs.  Talk about motivation!

When Sarah isn’t working, she enjoys remaining active by playing tennis and working out.  “I’ve played tennis for a long time, and I’m lucky to be on several successful teams this year!” she says.  She’s also a very passionate and avid Chicago Cubs fan, showing her team pride whenever possible.  Lastly and most importantly, she loves spending time with her husband and three children, who share her signature red locks.  It’s obvious that the kids idolize their mom a great deal, as they’re all growing up as proud Cubs fans and following in her athletic footsteps! 

It’s hard to imagine what the office was like before Sarah Hoffman burst onto the scene, and we hope to have her in our Capital/Harmony/AMT family for years to come! “Everyone in the office knows how passionate Sarah can be.  She is all in to win!” Lou says. “We are so honored to have her on our AMT team, and I look forward to many years working alongside of her.”

If you see Sarah and her flashy trophy, be sure to wish her congratulations, and stop by next month to see who the next Corporate Star Performer will be!


 Capital and Harmony Select July's Corporate Star Performer!

 Art, Kim, Al

For the month of July, we would like to recognize Kim Miller, our kind and hard-working Payroll Specialist, as our Corporate Star Performer!  The world of payroll can be a hectic one.  It is easily one of the most important spokes to the wheel of any company, and there is never a dull moment!  When payroll challenges arise, Kim is there with a constant smile on her face to find solutions that put our employees’ hard-earned wages in the bank! 

For anyone who has worked with Kim, it doesn’t take long to realize she may easily be one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet!  “You will never catch Kim without a smile on her face,” says Justine Moyer, Human Resources Generalist, “She is a true team player and one of the kindest people in the organization.”  For Kim, that positivity is just part of what makes each day manageable and worthwhile.  “What keeps me going is my drive to be the best person I can be every day, and to find the positive things in everything around me,” Kim says.  

What makes working with Kim even better is that she’s always willing to go the extra mile to help her colleagues, as well as our hard-working medical professionals in the field.  “She goes above and beyond to make sure all of our employees who submit timesheets are paid each week, and if they have any issues she will be the first to resolve them,” says Clark Hoopes, Financial Analyst.  Despite long days, endless phone calls, and many interruptions from us in the office, at the end of the day Kim enjoys her work, and she genuinely wants to help.  “I like working with numbers and being able to troubleshoot issues to help people understand their paychecks,” she says. 

When Kim’s enjoying her off-time, she likes spending as much of it as possible with her family and friends.  Whether attending her son’s hockey games, her daughter’s soccer games, or simply relaxing outside with homemade pizza and a fire, any time spent together is quality.  Kim also has a passion for building things, and she and her husband have recently begun selling their homemade woodworking items.  Something else interesting to note about Kim is that she’s much stronger than she looks! “I can squat press and dead lift a little over 200 pounds, and sled pull around 300…so watch out for ‘Biller Miller’” she says.  

For all of Kim’s hard work and accomplishments at Capital Healthcare and Harmony Home Healthcare, she doesn’t ask for the attention or recognition. “She is the kind of person who doesn’t want the attention she deserves,” says Al Ragan, CFO, “but she is the example of what it means to be ‘relentless to succeed’ and ‘all in to win.’”  So, for the rest of July we’re giving Kim the attention we KNOW she deserves!  

For all that you do, Kim, we thank you.  We’re grateful for your dedication, hard-work, and simply for the person you are!  

Stay tuned next month to see who the next Star Performer will be!

Rob, Missy, and Art

Since she started her career at Capital over a year ago as an Account Executive for the Health and Human Services division, she has excelled beyond everyone’s expectations, proving that she is relentless to succeed!  As any Account Executive knows, the duties and responsibilities that come with the job are not easy.  You are solving problems, and building and developing relationships with each and every frequent phone call and e-mail, ensuring that both your clients’ and employees’ needs are being met.  Missy has not only proven she is up to the task, but has also shown that she can carry out her work responsibilities with efficiency, grace, and pristine punctuality!

Missy is the sole Account Executive for this division, staffing needs for Nurses and Direct Support Professionals in facilities such as Community Group Homes, Program Centers, and Campus Centers, often coming in early and staying late just to ensure she has done all she can to help her clients and staff.  This all-in-to-win attitude is just one of the things that makes Missy stand out so much! Her passion is another. “She is passionate about her role as she has a full understanding of how we impact those with whom we serve,” says Rob Hicks, Client Services Manager.

Missy genuinely enjoys her role as an Account Executive, identifying the people she serves as the ones who keep her going each day.  “Talking to my clients and staff every day, building relationships with them, and getting to know them on a personal level is what inspires me,” Missy says.  She also enjoys the familial atmosphere of working for Capital and Harmony, and the support system and team of managers and executives who have embraced her whole-heartedly.  “It is so comforting to know that there is a support team here at work,” Missy says, identifying and praising her manager, Rob Hicks; Andy Kirik, COO; and Key Account Executive, Vicki Arnett as her support network, always willing to answer her questions and offer help. 

When Missy is enjoying her downtime, she loves spending time with her family and friends, and enjoying time outdoors.  She likes to stay active by hiking, walking, and of course—shopping!  She also has a passion for antiques and going picking for and collecting old, vintage treasures. 

For all of these reasons and more, we are proud to honor Missy with this award!  “Through her hard work and dedication, Missy has formulated strong professional relationships with staff within the office, her clients, and her staff working in the field,” Rob says.  She is a great team player, and a fantastic representation of our company’s core values!  You can catch Missy sporting her extravagant award all month long at our Bethel Park office until it’s time to pass it on to our next Corporate Star Performer!
