VOTED HOUSTON MAY EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH!
Debra Sandoval arrived back in January of 2019 to assume the role of Health Care Account Manager for Lone Star Houston. Debra reports to Marquis Woodard and works with Cliff Switzer, Julie Fischer, Aaron Reyna, and Greg Propps in the healthcare market.
Although not from the Lone Star State, Debra has some big ties to the Houston Cougars (her son Max is a graduate of U of H). Debra is the first one to dress up for any holiday and neighbors report that her Christmas decorations might possibly be over the top. She also will be joining the employee advisory council which meets in early June.

Interesting Fact, though she may not be fluent in Spanish, Deb is very proud of her Hispanic background."

Comments from Laura's coworkers
"It has been an awesome opportunity to get to work with Laura more closely these last couple of weeks. Laura has gone above and beyond to make sure she gets the customer's needs met!"
"Laura goes the extra mile with great communications and follow-up, both internally with coworkers and externally with customers."
"Long story short - I called in last week and did not leave a message with service. I actually called in twice. The next morning, I received a call from her asking me if I needed anything because she saw a "missed number" on her phone. 10 minutes later I received a second call from the second call I made without leaving a message. If this is the service we provide each morning, we are doing an outstanding job of trying to take care of our customers."
