Meg Scully has recently been “officially” hired at The Health Collaborative as the new hb/suite Customer Account Manager, but she’s already a familiar face around the office.
For about the past eight months Meg has worked with the HealthBridge service line team as a project management contractor, and was instrumental in helping to guide the organization through the complicated re-structuring and implementation of the Verinovum tech stack replacement.
In Meg’s new role, she’ll be reaching out to our customers that fall under the hb/suite umbrella, to get an understanding of how they are using our products and services, how we can improve, and to educate customers on enhancements and new products that may help them day-to-day. We sat down with Meg recently for a quick Q&A.
Where did you grow up, and how has it shaped who you have become?
I grew up in the middle of nowhere a few miles from Troy, Ohio. Troy is just north of Dayton, known mostly for the Strawberry Festival, soccer tournaments, and Fulton Farm corn on the cob. We had a “Drive Your Tractor to School Day” in high school which will tell you everything you need to know! As eager as I was to get out of that small town, I am very thankful for the lessons learned. Professionally, my upbringing has taught me to never burn a bridge. It is a small world, especially in the Greater Cincinnati Area!
What is your background?
I graduated from Ohio University with a Bachelor’s degree in Communication Studies, with a focus in Marketing and Business. After graduation, I moved to Northern Kentucky where I started working for Verst Group Logistics in their packaging department as an Account Representative. I worked with companies like General Mills, Nestle, Welch’s, and was in charge of running the liquor accounts like Wild Turkey and Svedka.
Then I tried my hand at technical staffing with Insight Global. It was the polar opposite of what I had been doing…picture The Wolf of Wall Street. I was seeking more balance in my life, and just a week after I left Insight Global, I got a call about the project management role with The Health Collaborative. I didn’t know exactly what I was getting myself into (and neither did Jason Buckner, SVP Informatics) but it has been an awesome/crazy/hectic/wonderful experience!
What’s your favorite stress-relieving activity outside of the office?
Although my Fitbit friends might challenge me on this… I love to take walks after work. My favorite place to walk is through the historical area in Covington, KY!
What are you most proud of, personally or professionally?
Promise I’m not trying to brown nose here…. But I am very proud to be a part of such an amazing organization at 23 years old. To believe in my work and to be surrounded by people who uplift one another while working toward a stronger community is something I have always dreamed of.
If you were a character on The Simpsons, who would you be and why?
Tough question…Probably Milhouse because he always seems to get himself into unfortunate and awkward situations.
Where is your favorite vacation spot?
Anywhere with a beach, but Cabo San Lucas has been my favorite!
What book are you currently (or most recently) reading?
Big Little Lies
Have you ever met a celebrity? If yes, who? Were they nice?
I fed Aaron Carter a potato chip once! Not many words were spoken but he seemed to enjoy the chip.
What’s your weirdest/most unusual talent and when does it come in handy?
I am VERY good at parallel parking but please don’t look at my front bumper. It wasn’t my fault ;)
