For our September employee spotlight, we are happy to introduce you to Ann Marie. In her role of Certified Training Specialist-Lead Trainer for our Human Resources department, Ann Marie welcomes new hires and leads the training of employees so everyone at Liberty HealthShare has the knowledge they need to serve our members.
Ann Marie has been a part of the Liberty HealthShare family for the past three years, and she comes to work every day with a positive, warm attitude. She says her motivation comes from her wanting “to do God’s work, and I pray and ask Him daily to show me what needs done.” she said.
