Employee Spotlight: Aurelie Corrigan, Project Manager
Education: I graduated from Temple University in 2012 with an Anthropology degree. I decided to major in Anthropology because of an interest in Biological Anthropology, which is similar to genetics.
Resume: I was a food tour guide in Philly. After graduation I moved to Houston to take a job implementing dealer management software for Reynolds and Reynolds. My product involved the finance and insurance side of the car dealership and featured software that would help with compliance, contract understanding, and sales.
Job Description: I joined Shaw in May 2013. I’m currently transitioning from a BA to a Project Manager. As a BA I spent time supporting customer’s questions and requests, configuring the Collections System, and occasionally providing onsite support for newly implemented customers. As a Project Manager I will be joining the PMO to help execute projects and work within the team to develop and mature the procedures for project management processes for new customer implementations.
Rave Review: “Aurelie is always a bright spot in the office. She brings enthusiasm and a ‘can do’ attitude to any endeavor she is tasked with,” says Kevin Reed, Manager, Project Management Office. “She leverages her people oriented skill sets, which she honed as a BA, as she transitioned into her new role as a project manager in the PMO. She is engaging, bright and will develop into a top notch project manager and implementation specialist. The future for Aurelie at Shaw is so bright she has to wear shades.”
Family and Interests: I’m from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and am one of 10 siblings. I rescued the BEST yellow lab in the world, and I’m recently engaged to a guy named Stephen. I enjoy travel, puzzles/trivia, spending time with my dog (Leo), and generally anything social.
Perspective: I am so thankful to be a part of the growing PMO department. This department will be an opportunity to show current customers and future prospects that Shaw is a forward thinking and organized company. Shaw has a family atmosphere which has allowed me to make friends and feel supported in my work. Every person at Shaw Systems has been knowledgeable and willing to help out when a team member is in need. It is a very exciting time to be at Shaw! Between the increasing offerings on different platforms and booming sales, Shaw is a company that has been perfect with which to grow.
