Ascend employees are the heart and soul of our company, and every employee changes lives with their hard work. We hope you enjoy getting to know one of our employees in this profile.
Always upbeat and forever a team player, Krystal Webb has enjoyed working with four different teams during her 14 years with ATI and Ascend. Currently, Krystal is the senior training and enablement manager with ATI. In this role, she’s one of the first people new hires interact with when they start their new position at ATI. She welcomes new hires via email, hosts live Skype sessions, and facilitates a live new hire product training class in Leawood, KS office. She and the new hires then stay connected through a 12 week online training program.
Krystal is extremely passionate about helping ATI employees better understand the business’ incredibly massive solutions offerings. Outside of the office, she loves spending time with her family. Krystal and her husband Brady and their two daughters love to go to church, play outside and just spend quality time together.
Q: What is your favorite thing about the business unit/department you support?
My favorite thing about ATI Nursing is our people! Our internal employees and external clients are my favorite. I love working with the best team on the planet and I love that we support nursing students and educators. I have a special place in my heart for nurses and feel incredibly blessed to contribute to creating better nurses and help prepare them to be the best nurses in the field. We have an amazing organization and I feel very fortunate to get to work with each and every new hire, in setting them up with the right resources and tools to be successful ambassadors of our products and solutions. Seriously, the people at ATI are super special and are one of a kind!
Q: What is one word that you would use to describe your work team, and why did you choose that word?
Collaborative. The ATI Marketing team is comprised of some of the most talented, passionate people I know. They always know how to get the job done (have you heard of the Nursing Summit? The “Best Work Week Ever” organized and delivered by the ATI Marketing Team), have fun and also deliver the best possible end product.
Q: What’s something you’ve done that most people haven’t done?
One dream job I’ve held is the role of Professional NFL Cheerleader for the Kansas City Chiefs. This was a passion and dream of mine for as long as I can remember, since being on the side-lines cheering on my dads team from as early as 2 years old. With a lot of hard work, perseverance and determination, I made my dream a reality. I also worked as a Client Account Manager for ATI while cheering for 80,000 fans and the loudest stadium in the NFL. This was one of the best life experiences I’ve had the opportunity to be a part of. One of my favorite aspects of being a Chiefs Cheerleader was being active in community work and public appearances, being a role model within my community and a role model for young girls to look up to. I also set a goal to run my first marathon on my 30th birthday and I did it! I ran the Las Vegas strip at night. It was a fun and exhausting experience, with my husband cheering me on.
