Making a Difference

Meet CHG’s 2017 Difference Makers

At CHG Healthcare, our Putting People First culture encourages our employees to not only take care of each other and our customers, but to make a difference in our communities as well. Last year, we introduced our Difference Makers award as a way to recognize our people’s volunteer efforts and give them an opportunity to give back on a global scale.

Four Difference Makers and their guests joined our CEO Scott Beck on a company-sponsored humanitarian trip to Kenya, where the group had the opportunity to learn more about the Kenyan culture and to help build a much-needed school for boys. Read more about their journey in this CHG Pulse story.

2017 Difference Makers

This year, we’re sending six Difference Makers to Kenya for another company-sponsored humanitarian trip. These individuals were chosen for their dedication to serving others and commitment to living our Putting People First core value in every aspect of their lives.

Kimberly Mosley, Payroll manager, RNnetwork, Boca Raton, Fla.

Kimberly knows what it’s like to feel hopeless, But despite her own life challenges, she’s found joy in being a lighthouse for others. A motivational speaker, Kimberly seeks to help young women grow through painful experiences and plans to publish her first book later this year.

She also helped found the organization We’re Empowered to Achieve the Impossible (WETATi), which helps college students in Maryland and Nigeria envision and act on their goals.

When our CEO Scott Beck unveiled CHG’s purpose statement last year and explained how our company is dedicated to making a difference, Kimberly felt an instant connection. The very next day, she wrote this song.

 

Shilo Jackson‚ Associate manager, CHG Healthcare, Salt Lake City, Utah

Shilo‘s mission is to lighten the burden of those with cancer and the cause is a personal one, as her own son is a cancer survivor. She runs CHG’s Conquering Cancer Employee Network Group, lending support to members of the CHG family affected by cancer.

With Shilo at the helm, the group has sponsored the Cancer Wellness House, a resource for those undergoing cancer treatment, and raised $2,000 for the organization in 2016.

 

Jessica Kollman, Cultural engagement specialist, CompHealth, Salt Lake City, Utah

Ten years ago, a drunk driver hit Jessica‘s car head-on, crushing both of her legs. Grateful to be alive, she committed to improving the world for future generations.

Since then, she has volunteered extensively for various organizations, including the United Way, the Utah Food Bank, and SheJumps, to name a few. As part of her work with the United Way and local schools, she also developed an after-school mindfulness and yoga program for children.

 

Callaway McKay, Client developer, CompHealth, Salt Lake City, Utah

Callaway is making her mark as the president elect of the Junior League of Salt Lake City, a women’s organization that works to build stronger communities. Over the past eight years, she has served in various roles for the organization, including fundraising vice president and events director.

The group organizes the annual Salt Lake City CARE fair, a two-day event providing medical and dental services to families who need them, and recently began making plans to fight human trafficking in Utah.

 

Grant Olsen, Senior copywriter, CHG Healthcare, Salt Lake City, Utah

Inspired by his travels to Nepal and India in 2005, Grant serves as an ambassador for the Umbrella Foundation, an organization that helps Nepali orphans. In 2015, he published a children’s book set in Nepal entitled “Rhino Trouble.” He donates 100 percent of the book’s proceeds to Umbrella and plans to do the same when he publishes his second book later this year.

Grant also makes a difference by working with special needs children locally and by organizing shoe drives to benefit the Dando Amor organization.

 

Courtney Williams, Client admin specialist, RNnetwork, Boca Raton, Fla.

Courtney says her life mission is to lift and serve those in need. Whether she’s tutoring underprivileged children in after-school programs, counseling victims of domestic violence, or organizing toy drives for foster children, Courtney aims to help people feel loved.

In 2012, she spent a week at an orphanage in Nigeria, sharing love and happiness with the children there. Courtney’s efforts are a reminder that small acts of kindness often have the biggest impact.
