After leaving DOI, Christa oversaw the office functions at several clinic locations across Kentucky as the Office Coordinator and Credentialing Assistant. She assisted the Director of Credentialing and Contracts with establishing insurance contracts for commercial insurance and Medicaid programs on a nationwide basis. Most of her career has been spent working with Managed Care Organizations, Healthcare Organizations, and Commercial Insurance companies. She is completing her Bachelor of Science in Health Care Administration at Midway University and preparing for the exam to receive her SHRM-SCP certification. Christa's passion for HR has been driven by an interest in emotional intelligence and commitment to improving employee engagement. Christa says her job is immensely rewarding because she is passionate about supporting the organization's most important asset - its people.
