We recently welcomed aboard Carla Wood, Financial Training’s newest Training and Development Specialist. Please join us in welcoming her to the team by getting to know her in the interview below!
Q: Tell us a bit about yourself
A: I am a mom of 3, a grandma of 8, and a wife of one husband. I am a motorcycle rider (not a biker, a Motorcycle Enthusiast), and I love to sew and make designer teddy bears. I began my career in training at the State of Ohio Department of Development where I taught the states Quality Initiative, Microsoft classes, and several others. I then moved to The Ohio State University Marion campus to build an Access desktop database to track their training projects and I taught Microsoft Word, Excel and Outlook classes.
Q: What interested you in working in the Financial Training department?
A: Teaching others is my passion. I love seeing the Ah-Ha moments when a student lights up when they have learned something new, like when I teach a Microsoft class and a student learns how to solve a problem they have had in the past.
Q: What are you hoping to bring to Financial Training?
A: I am hoping to share my passion for training and my focus on improving processes. And I hope to help the Financial Training office make buckeye Learn classes engaging which will result in a higher knowledge, skills, and abilities retention rate.
Q: What do you like to do for fun outside work?
A: I like riding motorcycles, camping, playing with my grandchildren, entertaining at my house, drinking wine, sewing, and playing with my new Shih Tzu puppy.
