Halo Highlight: Mandy Hampton
“Halo Highlight” is a series of interviews showcasing our unique and talented team members. This week, we sat down with Implementation Consultant Mandy Hampton to learn more about her role, the company culture at Halo, and what’s on her music playlist.
How did you end up at Halo?
I’ve always known that I wanted to help save lives in some capacity. I studied neuroscience in college, but I knew that continuing onto medical school wasn’t for me. Prior to working at Halo, I spent six years in the medical documentation field. My days included spending time with providers to better understand workflows and standing up scribe programs across the region to help with physician burnout and electronic health records (EHR) documentation. After spending a year in the pharmaceutical research world, I realized how much I enjoyed working to improve the lives of patients and clinicians. I knew that I needed to get back to it but just in a different capacity than my former career. A previous co-worker mentioned Halo in passing, and I saw the opening for an Implementation Consultant and knew I couldn’t pass up the opportunity. I made the jump last summer and couldn’t be happier!
What aspect of your role do you enjoy the most?
I love that there’s always something new and exciting on the agenda. There’s a variety of things that we’re exposed to daily, and it’s comforting to know that we’re making a difference in people’s lives. From training our Halo Champions and collaborating with end users to sharing our platform’s game-changing features, I’m always on my toes and figuring out my next step. No customer implementation is the same, and I’m constantly learning and growing as an individual.
How would you describe the company culture at Halo?
I’m biased, but Halo has the best workplace! It’s an amazing team of really talented individuals, and we all bring something different to the table. Everything’s always changing, and what’s great is that we’re writing our own story as we go. Being able to collaborate with our own teams and across departments allows us to open up to new learning opportunities in our role. On any given day, we keep an open mind and listen to each other’s ideas. Learning from my fellow team members makes me stronger.
What’s on your bucket list?
I have two big trips in mind. I think the culture is so rich in Greece, so I’d travel to Athens first and then skip along to the islands of Mikonos and Santorini. It would definitely involve a mixture of relaxing and sightseeing. Another trip would be getting a camper and exploring various national parks including the Badlands and Yellowstone. It would be nice to truly immerse myself in nature and escape technology for a while – everyone needs a “reset!”
If you could time travel, which period of time would you go back to visit?
I’d like to go 100 years into the future. I’m curious to see how technology impacts the way people interact with each other, and it’d be interesting to learn how we end up solving the issues we see today. More importantly, I really want to know if cars will ever fly.
What’s on your music playlist?
It’s a good mix of country, rap, and hip-hop – it really depends on my mood! A fellow team member Jason Thurman recently introduced me to First Aid Kit and Swedish folk music, which I really like too!
What’s your go-to drink from the coffee machine?
I’m probably the only one who doesn’t drink coffee! I use the water dispenser next to the coffee machine a lot more often. But if I had to pick, I’d do a half coffee and half hot chocolate.
