Featured Promotion of the Week
Sharon S., Invoicing Specialist, New Holland, PA
Hi! My name is Sharon.
I have been with the company for 24 years. I coordinate a wide variety of data from items like hours and orders as well as costs and margins for materials and freight to create billing to clients; all of which must be interpreted and processed per fee schedules and with customers’ unique program requirements. Additionally, I am involved with AP and AR requirements for some of these costs, and in escalations for purchasing and setting up vendors. I also coordinate with client services and ops for billing approvals and bicoastal invoice management with various teams.
Some of the challenges I have faced in my career were having to figure out complicated billing structures or jump in on an unfamiliar area of processing, and how I overcame those challenges was with Teamwork.
The accomplishment I am most proud of is my longevity with the company and the ability to shift and move within the company when needed. I am seen as an asset and valued for my work. I have grown to have overall knowledge and confidence in what I do.
My biggest inspirations within the company are Kim P. (VP Client Services) who has been mentor, role model and friend, as well as Lee B. (Accounting Manager) who has been a guide and teacher in the world of accounting.
COFFEE!! <just kidding> I remind myself that no matter how much there may be to do, this is what I am good at, and I’ve got this!….Then get it done!
I read fast…at least if the book is good!
While it’s not new to some of my fellow “echo” gang… I used to Drag Race. I attended NHRA divisional and national events (crew…not spectator!), worked on the family race car and have even driven at local drag strips with my parents back in the day. I still go to watch and visit with racer friends occasionally but haven’t participated in many years. It’s a heck of rush and if you have a fast car…take it to the track!!!! I also used to sing soprano (not anymore) and medaled in districts in track and field for discus throwing in high school.
When not working I like to read, listen to music, dance, swim, and find activities to do with my son.
