Gee maintains all aspects of Suddenlink’s billing systems and recently co-led a billing statement redesign. She not only handles development of compliance, reporting, statement creation, product provisioning and more, but she also leads the company’s geographically dispersed team implementing those initiatives. “I have a 45-minute commute to and from work. My favorite tip for unwinding is to crank my car stereo, open the sun roof and sing all the way home,” she says.
What’s the most important aspect of mentoring?
Trust and commitment. Both parties must be committed to the journey and building a relationship of mutual trust.
Best trick for maintaining the personal-professional life balance?
Realistic expectations, prioritization, and teamwork. I remember when I was still trying to do it all. Ugh! Finally, somewhere along the way, I realized it is OK if towels don’t get folded and are used out of the laundry basket, we eat grilled cheese for dinner, and I don’t make it to every baseball practice. Sitting everyone down and having the “teamwork” talk really helps as well. Everyone in the family has to sacrifice at some point to make sure we all are happy and successful. Pull together as a team!
Your favorite trick for unwinding?
I have a 45-minute commute to and from work. My favorite tip for unwinding is to crank my car stereo, open the sun roof and sing all the way home. I get a few stares along the way. I just wave and think to myself, Don’t you wish you were enjoying yourself as much as I am! By the time I’m home, I’m in a great mood!
