Sandi Maziarz started working at Artman five years ago as a Medical Records Clerk. After working part-time for sixth months, she saw an opening for a Human Resources Representative and was immediately intrigued. “I thought it would be exciting and interesting,” she said. “It would be more of a challenge for me, and I knew that I’d be able to interact more with employees.” Now that Sandi is retiring, she reflects on what Artman has meant to her.
“It has really become a family,” she said. “That’s not just a cliché; it’s in your blood before you even know it. Everyone cares and is understanding.” Sandi suffered a loss in her family, and her co-workers at Artman helped her through the difficult time. “I appreciated it so much,” she said. “I thought that the only support I had was my husband, but then I realized that I also had Artman. It was during that time that I realized how much Artman really meant to me.”
Sandi has always worked to maintain close relationships with the employees that she hired. “I really enjoyed the opportunity to interview people and find the right fit for Artman and the position,” she said. “And then I get to sit back and watch them succeed.”
Sandi is looking forward to spending more time with her husband, who frequently traveled for business, and to knitting and quilting. She is also excited to learn new things, and plans to start taking piano lessons.
