Weeks 4 and 5

I have absolutely loved my time here with UPMC so far.  As we head into Week 5, things are starting to heat up for year end close.  Throughout Week 4, I was heavily involved in preparing our 990 – Tax Supplement by vendor, as our Charitable Contributions exceeded $850 million for this past fiscal year.

After spending a few days off with my family and fellow Juniatians, Paul Kuhn and Ben Krouse, at Lake George, for the 4th of July, it is finally time to get back to work; although, there is much to look forward to this week.  This afternoon, I have my communications chair meeting with HR representatives as we analyze how UPMC can continue to recruit and retain top talent.  On Wednesday, I have a meeting with the Corporate Controller and my department to discuss VP budget variances, both MTD and YTD.  After that meeting concludes, the Summer Associates program will be hosting its annual Networking Event at the Pirates Game.  We will have the opportunity to meet colleagues from all disciplines, including numerous executives.  I am very much so looking forward to this event, and my 7th Pirates game of the summer.

Pictures to come!
