Kickstarting A Career In Tech | The Story of Lisa

June 30, 2022

Continuing the series of conversations with our employees about their experience here and why they enjoy coming to work everyday.

A: How long have you been with Provalus?
L: I started in July of 2019 as a Software Developer and I am currently a team lead. I oversee a team of 3 for one of our top clients.

A: How did you come to work at Provalus?
L: In March of 2019 my husband and I decided we needed a change of scenery so we moved to Brewton from Northern Virginia. I was a substitute teacher in Virginia but I wanted to do something different. I saw the job posting for a Software Developer with Provalus and I wanted to give it a shot!

A: What are your day-to-day responsibilities?
L: I create reports to make sure all guidelines are being followed. I recently won the red hat certification scholarship and I am currently studying for the certification test! The red hat certification is a top notch certification for the Lennox Systems. I am also a part of several committees. One is the Community Closet Committee, which involves organizing donations. I appreciate how supportive the team and the community are of each other. 

A: What do you enjoy about working at Provalus and how would you describe leadership?
L: They are very inclusive with their employees. Management is always available to talk and are very open with you. When the broader OPS leaders come to visit, they always want to talk to you and get to know about you.

A: Do you have aspirations to do something different in your career?
L: I hope to become red hat certified soon to help me grow in my current position and one day hold a leadership role! 

A: What has been the biggest impact Provalus has had on the community?
L: They have brought life to downtown Brewton. I’ve seen so many new businesses open. When I first moved here, the downtown area felt like a ghost town, but it’s not a ghost town anymore!

A: Fun fact about yourself?
I love pizza and the beach so eating pizza on the beach is my favorite!
