Meet The Wello Family; Read about a day in the life of our Strategic Projects Lead, Maya Newman.

What is your name and role at Wello? 

My name is Maya Newman and I am the Strategic Projects Lead at Wello.

Describe a typical day as a Strategic Projects Lead.

A typical day starts with a daily huddle with the sales team, where we catch up about work-related efforts and personal updates like the latest plant a teammate purchased! I then focus my attention on the many projects I manage, connecting with people from our Operations team, Finance team, Software Development team and Client Success team to help organize and maintain internal processes and create new ways to add value to prospects, clients and partners organizations. After may meetings, and a few cups of coffee, I close my day with a daily email to internal stakeholders with a high-level update on late-stage sales efforts to help communicate and anticipate new client launches and more.

How has virtual healthcare changed your life?

It has given me relief to know exactly where to turn with any health questions – big or small.

What is the biggest challenge about the work you do?

Communication and making sure those who need to be involved are involved at the right time. Also my objectives change day to day so knowing how to prioritize every day is very important!

Describe yourself in one sentence.

Motivated and team-oriented, often working behind the scenes to connect the dots. Open-minded and creative too!

What is the most inspiring quote or book you have read?

Kurt Vonnegut is my favourite author! “So it goes” is a classic. I like how simple and direct it is.

If you can be any superhero, which one would it be and why?

One who can fly because I would love to have that feeling!

What does it mean to be part of the Wello/Inliv family?

Working at this company gives me a feeling of support and community. I like how taking initiative is encouraged.
Share a value story using the Wello/Inliv values.
On the value of “growth”, I have seen myself and others being supported in taking on new challenges and opportunities. One example is during spring of this year, when the team was working hard to support new clients as so many Canadian companies needed virtual support for remote workers, especially at a time with so many health concerns. I was tasked to plan and execute the launch of one of our largest clients in the shortest timeframe we have ever launched a client. The team was so supportive of being available, and I felt that I had the tools to know who to turn to and how to organize. This type of opportunity was challenging and demanding, and in the end was very rewarding and gave me even more skills and lessons in problem-solving.
