Tell us more about your job at Flash.
As Quality Coordinator, I do a number of important tasks. Like performing root cause/corrective action analysis (RCCA) for our clients’ events and providing consistent and reliable feedback to the Command Center leadership in effort to drive continuous performance improvement. I am the key support liaison for all operational facets of the Command Center. I work closely with the Client Services team to make sure that everything is running as smooth as possible, and avoid service failures/customer impact.
From a work standpoint, what does “success” look like to you?
For me, success means being able to step outside of my comfort zone and learn new things so that I am better equipped to execute successfully and help others succeed as well.
The best part of working at Flash is…
The people, no question. They keep me motivated, and I try my best to do the same for my team. I hold team awareness meetings to make sure everyone has a keen understanding of what’s going on and to keep everyone in the loop. I always want those around me to be better than me, so that maybe one day they can be in my position too. I love to have fun with everyone in the Command Center, and just create an overall welcoming atmosphere. I make sure that everyone’s fed, happy, and doing well — so that way, their 8 hours goes by just a little bit better.
