Corey has been a member of our Joxel team for a little over a month and is already having a significant positive impact on our company. Corey brings a contagious positivity that’s beneficial to all who are around him. Corey undoubtedly has a willingness to jump in and assist where he is needed, which is in addition to his project manager duties. Corey’s diverse knowledge and skill set give him this versatility. We are so happy to have him as part of our team. Let’s take a moment to learn a bit more about our newest Joxel family member, Corey Neuman.
What prompted you to go into the Healthcare Industry, i.e. Project Management?
Interest in analyzing vast swaths of data and the conjoined satisfaction of helping people at the micro or macro levels.
How has your previous healthcare experiences helped you in your role as Clinical Project Manager at The Joxel Group?
I’ve worked in a variety of roles; from pharmacy technician to billing management, implementation coordinator to operations analyst. Each role has contributed to my professional and personal worldview and skillsets and I like to think I bring it all to bear here, for and alongside The Joxel Group.
If you could describe yourself in three words, which three words would you use?
Jocular, garrulous and puckish.
How do you unplug?
Play with a combination of my three children and two dogs, sketch and whittle, and pursue photography as a passion and sideline career.
What are three things people don’t know about you?
- I am incredibly, terrifyingly clumsy.
- My maternal grandfather’s pet bulldog soiled a medieval tapestry in post-SS occupied Neuschwanstein Castle, and I own the typed reprimand from the onsite US Commandant.
- I am a massive fan of the 90s Ska and Swing music.
What does integrity mean to you?
Integrity to me is doing the morally or ethically correct thing, regardless of difficulty or personal sacrifice, even if your efforts will never be recognized.
What does customer service mean to you?
Working in service to and in concert with the customer, the end-user or recipient. Customer service is pride wrapped in humility and appropriate subservience.
If there was one aspect of the Project Management or the Healthcare field, that you could change or fix, what would that aspect be?
Rigidity. The overly rigid nature of Project Management as a general concept tends to work against the best interests of the client and the PM; one must be flexible and willing to occupy many roles; whatever is most necessary to be of greatest service and elucidation. The same concept applies to Healthcare, in so far as rigidity and the resulting lack of imagination. The Healthcare industry risks growing increasingly moribund, the less fluid or top-heavy it becomes.
Thank you, Corey, for taking the time to participate in this edition of the Joxel Spotlight. We’re excited and looking forward to what your Joxel future has in store for you!
