This is my visual resume. I'm playing with other presentation approaches, but really love how this changes things. I never thought the linear style of packing a page with buzz words and key phrases ever really made sense anyway! Hope you like what you see.
Most days I work from home for B Wyze Solutions:
- Designing, building, and quality checking SH!FT online training courses,
- Editing marketing communications, or
- Assessing the quality of either recorded calls or online proctored exam sessions.

I started climbing the ladder ofmy call center career supportingA+ Tax software during taxseason.My new supervisor handed mean IRS pub 17 then set me upwith a phone to field calls andpark tickets in the queue.My first call center lesson was how to use the pick-and-park strategy of clearing incoming calls off the board.
I learned fast andwas promoted toa KnowledgeManagementposition.Tax season was TOUGH, but fortunately, I did wellenough to get hired on the Andersen service deskafter it was over.As a Knowledge Manager, I wrote supportdocumentation including knowledge articles, SOPs,training manuals, and instructional guides.
THE PWC YEARS: 2002 – 2010When Arthur Andersen went out ofbusiness, I was fortunate to beimmediately hired on with PwC.With my new team I wrote ITcommunication alerts, advisories andannouncements.I also compiled our communicationsteam writing standards guide andmanaged the IT best practicedocumentation database.Then, I took calls from PwC auditors fora little while.
I became a coach first by assessing the quality ofrecorded calls for the IT service desk.My teammate and I designed and built the programfrom the ground up including the form, scoring,ratings, assessment standards, calibrations, reporting,evaluations, training and individual staff coachingsessions.I LOVED this work, but after a fewyears I needed a new challenge. Idecided I was ready to expand thiscoaching experience to peoplemanagement.This call may be recorded . . .. . . For quality and trainingpurposes
So, I became a supervisor the HRSSC call centerdoing all the things team leads do to assist theirmanager and coach staff to their highestperformance potential . . . for about a year.. . . . Then I was promoted again.
As a new manager, I managed call center systems, processes and reporting. I was stillcoaching though since our operational manager was brand new to the call centerenvironment. A perfect partnership!I LOVED delivering performance reports like this example to help leadership make thebest possible decisions about call center strategic direction.
It looked like this . . .This meant examining all inputs/outputs for eachteam’s systems and processes to report anaccurate account of efficiency, people, costand quality.After creating a set of reportinganalytics for the HR call center, Imoved to the HRSSC Reporting team.In this role, I partnered with anotherreporting manager to create a similarreport for EVERY HRSSC departmentteam.
Once that project was completed, thereports were automated and handedover to the reporting team and I startedwriting again; this time for the HRSSCProcess Documentation team.I managed a projectto document SLAs forevery HRSSC teamand helped build theSOP documentationdatabase.

By providing Melina and me with reference materials from the Help Desk Institute (HDI) including 2008 meetingproceedings, recorded transcripts & website access via your account, you gave us a solid foundation on theimportance of a Service Catalog and corresponding components/considerations.You coached us on key components of Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL), the most widelyaccepted approach to IT service management and helped us recognize which elements could be used tosatisfy our HR needs. This foundation provided Melina with the confidence necessary to meet with all the teamswithin the HR SSC to begin documenting the services they deliver.I cannot count the many evenings you stayed to answer our questions and help us refine our Service LevelAgreement template. You patiently explained how Service Manager could be utilized by the teams to quantifymeasurable services and helped our team map out and implement a new product and support matrix for HRKnowledgeSource so that we might test the waters and be advocates for the rest of the department . . .walk thetalk if you will.During your work on the HR SSCs dashboard project, you continued to identify ways in which ProcessDocumentation and Reporting could collaborate and help the teams recognize the relationship between theirdashboards and the measures they were asked to capture in their SLAs. You supported bringing representativesfrom our teams plus Strategic Transformation and the Call Center to the table to discuss how we could workmore collaboratively on our individual projects to minimize stress to the teams yet demonstrate progress towardour individual deliverables.You enthusiastically reviewed our templates and challenged us to think critically, consistently asking ourselvesand the teams if the services we were documenting could be measured. Youve established yourself as avaluable resource for the entire team as well as a trusted coach whom the team could engage for guidance inmy absence.Were thrilled that the HR SSC leaders have placed you on assignment with Process Documentation to helpfinalize the first round of Service Level Agreement. It is fitting that you receive credit for your outstandingcontributions to this important project -- not just at the end, but throughout its lifecycle.Carla Anzalone, PwC Process and Documentation Team ManagerBut don’t take my word for it. . .
Tammy was fully engaged as a stakeholder on the Service Manager 7 project.She attended most meetings including stakeholder updates, design reviews andtraining updates over the course of the year. Tammys active participation onbehalf of the HR Call Center was especially important for meetings on ServiceDesk, Knowledge Management (KM) and Employee Self Service (ESS) systemcomponents.These meetings, particularly requirements gathering and design review sessionscan be difficult to follow, but Tammy remained attentive and activelycontributed feedback, ideas, concerns, suggestions, etc. Tammy leveraged herexperience in both the HR and IT call centers to translate or compare processesin the data administration/field mapping sessions.Tammy owned the Service Manager 7 training process for the entire HRSSC backoffice (~100 staff) including attending and coordinating training for all HRSSCSM7 trainers, providing training materials, and co-leading every session. Tammyalso helped to coordinate QA testers. In both instances Tammys assistancesaved the core project team time and let us focus on other areas of concern.Jeff Walters, PwC Senior Project Manager (Service Manager 7)But don’t take my word for it. . .
