Vicki Ferns

Senior Accounting Specialist

I love knowing that what we do as a company every day changes people lives for the better.

I would describe Provant as caring.  Each of us here truly care about our clients and want to guide them in the right direction with their health and wellness.  To us, our clients are not just a number; we treat each one on an individual basis.

I absolutely love hearing from clients who are ready for change because their biometric results were a serious eye-opener.  For example, many of the employees we screen have not seen a doctor in years and assume they are in good health because they feel fine.  However, they may actually be borderline diabetic or have really high cholesterol.  Once we know that, we work with them to reduce their risk, and they look forward to us coming back the following year to see how they improved.

Outside of Provant, my passion is spending time with my husband and three daughters.  We love any outdoor activities! 

Bill Thorndike

Communications Specialist

I produce communications materials -- flyers, postcards, welcome kits -- that support our programs by encouraging participant engagement. I help create monthly newsletters, I occasionally write pieces for Business Development, and I coordinate shipment of supplies to support sales events and health fairs.

Cheryl Jaeckel

Executive Administrative Assistant

I am a Staffing Consultant for states from the Northeast to Southeast.  I schedule and manage my providers and assist in training and developing their skills.  I also recruit and hire for my region to continue to build strong, qualified teams.

Chris Snizek

Client Specialist

I successfully implement clients' wellness programs, no matter the size or scope.  Some of the clients I support have in-depth comprehensive programs while others are portal only.  I believe in providing the same level of service to all!  I thouroughly enjoy helping organizations, and the people that make them great, be more aware of their health.

Outside of Provant, I enjoy fishing and hockey.

Barbara Haydon

Senior Vice President, Clinical Services

I joined Provant in September 2007.  I have worked in the health care and worksite wellness industry for nearly three decades.

I am responsible for the clinical programming, the medical director, compliance and product delivery.  My real role is to contribute to the quality and reproducibility of our services/products.

I believe what sets Provant apart from other wellness providers is our inability to say the word, “can’t”.  We are a dynamic company, responsive to client needs and always striving to better our programs and performance.

I cannot say enough about the dedication my colleagues have for the employers and employees we serve.  I have witnessed one of our on-site managers get in a car at 6 p.m. to drive eight hours and execute an event because a flight had been cancelled.  This type of effort happens all the time.  

Outside of wellness, my family is my passion.  I also enjoy traveling, cooking and gardening.

Cathey Nelson

Controller

I work with a great group of people in the Finance Department.  I'm involved in the day- to- day financial activities that are not directly related to clients.  My principle areas of responsibility include financial reporting, cash management, reviewing vendor and payroll transactions, as well as involvement in various audit and tax related activities.

Damien Duguay

Logistics Manager and Purchasing Assistant

I help ensure our team leads have the correct supplies and equipment that is needed for each event , while also providing assistance and direction to the Logistics Department. 

Audrey Ferns

Director, Operations

I joined Provant in July 2010.  I have worked in health care and wellness for 36 years. 

I oversee a team of people that  provide the best customer service possible to client employees, whether it involves scheduling appointments, answering incentive questions or more general questions.  My team is also responsible for all employee biometric data and reporting.

I truly believe that the smallest thing can have a major impact on someone’s work or quality of life.  I am always conscious of this and I bring this philosophy to work with me each day.  

I recently received a phone call from an employee who had a question unrelated to her company’s wellness program.   She began to cry and explained that her husband had just died and she was frustrated because her employer had kept referring her questions to someone else.  I offered to contact her doctor and get the information she needed.  Here was someone in so much pain reaching out for help and my simple offer to make a call meant so much to her.  I was able to resolve her problem in five minutes.  

The passion of my colleagues to perform above and beyond the expectations of employers and their employees has truly amazed me since joining Provant.  At most companies, you would expect this attitude and drive from a few people, but it is truly shared by the whole company.  It is infectious.

Outside of work, my passion is quilting.

Jim Malachowski

Client Management Specialist

I coordinate schedules, make travel arrangements, answer our hotline, and any other function that supports our staff on the ground nationwide.  They feel more confident and do a better job when I do my job well.  It’s interrelated.  

My work philosophy: Go Big or Go Home. We are always looking at the bigger picture in our goals and ideas.

The unique thing I’ve noticed about Provant is how our core company values are truly shared by our workforce nationwide.  We have the same passion, commitment and professionalism.

My passion outside of work is baseball. I am the short-stop for a men’s summer league.
 

Daniel Kenenski

Amy Gregoire

Portal Product Specialist

I conduct all functions that pertain to managing the Portal Product, which include:
setting up new sites or upgrading clients to new versions, data and eligibility uploads, setting
up challenges, monthly and ad-hoc reporting on all aspects of the portal, and troubleshooting any
issues that arise.

Dave Hadley

Director, Logistics

I do whatever needs to done!
One day I can go from packing boxes with the shipping team to a meeting with a vendor
about pricing and lead times. The next day go from driving the forklift to unload a truck to a meeting with the E.L. team about purchases and budgets for future events. Another day go from taking the trash out to overseeing an inventory cycle counts. No day is ever the same and that is why I enjoy working at Provant!
