Every month, Schwartz Insurance Group selects a peer-nominated associate to receive a Core Value Award. The winner is chosen because they "lived" one of our agency's core values - typically an event or accomplishment above and beyond the call of duty in serving our customers. This month, Paula Wheeler has "lived" our core value of "Get the Juices Flowing." Here's her story:
Having the right employees is very important in a service business. From the beginning, we have been an organization that works hard to value and show appreciation for our people. Like most small businesses, our best efforts come from within.
We’re on a mission to improve what we do and how we do it, and our newest team member Paula Wheeler has assisted us greatly with her expertise. It’s been a whirlwind task so far – tweaking policies, adding forms, simplifying processes – all to be tested and changed even more. But it’s exactly what we need!
Paula Wheeler already Gets the Juices Flowing!
Here, in her own words, is a little more information about Paula:
Congratulations on joining the team here at Schwartz Insurance Group! Can you tell us a little bit about your professional background – have you worked in the insurance field long?
I've worked in Human Resources and in Benefits Administration throughout my career.
Are you a Louisville native? What do you like most about living in the Derby City?
I'm from Hardin County, Kentucky and I love working in Louisville. I think we are blessed to live in such an amazing city with so much history and so many resources.
What might we be surprised to learn about you? Do you have any interests or hobbies?
I'm a professional photographer and the owner of Paula's Pet Care and Photogenic Photography Services.
Dogs or cats?
I love animals! I have two Papillons named Pepper and Rusty and a Wirehaired Dachshund named Pippin.
Rock and roll or country music?
I grew up listening to "records" - and 60s and 70s rock tunes are still my favorites.
What makes you truly happy?
Working with such nice people at Schwartz Insurance Group!
