Halo Highlight: Angie Fuhrmann
“Halo Highlight” is a series of interviews showcasing our unique and talented team members. This week, we sat down with Implementation Project Manager Angie Fuhrmann to learn more about her background, what she likes about her role, and her go-to cup of coffee.
How did you get to where you are today?
During college, I majored in biology with a chemistry minor. I was a lab technician (my first job postgrad) and eventually worked my way up to the project management side of a newborn stem cell company. After working there for 12 years and gaining experience in different project management areas, I decided I wanted a change. When considering a new role, I wanted one that was still impactful and improved human health. I came across Halo Health and saw that its mission aligned with what I wanted to do.
How would you describe your role?
I coordinate the implementation of Halo products across multihospital organizations. My role involves collaborating with multiple hospital technical and clinical teams, Halo’s technology and clinical teams, and executive leadership. Right now, I manage projects with some of our larger enterprise customers to facilitate the implementation of optimal clinical workflows utilizing our Halo application.
What do you like about being a project manager?
I love seeing the moving parts of a project and how they fit into the overall plan. After learning more about the project scope, my team and I plan on how we’ll achieve specific goals and meet customer expectations within a certain timeline. Through my role, I want to provide the most accurate information so leaders and project team members can make the right decisions for clinical collaboration and patient care. I hope I can help create a scalable process for all of our projects. As Halo continues to grow, being able to repeat similar processes across all health systems will be more efficient and allow for faster, easier product implementations for our customers.
What advice do you have for those starting out in their careers?
Figure out the unknown and do whatever it takes to learn new things. Have a winning attitude and be the person who others can count on to get things done. Wherever you’re working and whatever you’re doing, find something that keeps you going every day.
What is one non-work related goal you hope to achieve?
I hope to teach my three kids to have grit. In other words, their happiness is directly correlated to their belief in themselves and their ability to change. I want them to recognize that the journey is the goal. In addition to that, I would love to spend time on thru-hikes like the Appalachian Trail or the Pacific Crest Trail.
If you could take a month to travel anywhere in the world, where would you like to go?
New Zealand or take a road trip across the U.S.
What’s your go-to cup of coffee?
10 oz. coffee with shots of milk and vanilla.
