      Rachelle's Answer

      "I'm a creator by nature and constantly thinking up new ways to benefit the organization and improve processes. Most recently, I saw a gap in the new hire training and created a practice to teach new team members the information they need to be equipped and successful on the job. We continue to build upon it with training materials and incorporation of top talent into the program as mentors."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I genuinely appreciate working for a company that values my opinion when it comes to process streamlining and operations. This year, I made a couple of recommendations for planning and organizational apps that we have recently incorporated. Most notable was the use of Google Docs and Trello."

      When I conduct user research I keep a slide deck for the tasks performed and key findings. This has two benefits. First to see how each task informs another job. Second it can be shared with any newcomers on the team and you. Rather than providing a lengthy report this can be easily shared and digested through a project lifecycle.
