Hello Everyone! I’m Keisha Williams, the new Office Manager for the NNLM PSR. I’ll be coordinating the office workflow for the region.
My background is in the fast-paced travel healthcare industry where I worked in the housing capacity as a team lead and in credentialing as a specialist. In my housing role I oversaw the daily functions of the housing specialist team, ensuring that our travel healthcare professionals had housing established in various and often remote locations all over the country. We serviced all of their travel and housing needs so the only concern for the travelers was to pack a suitcase, travel and arrive at work without the daunting tasks of relocating. After working in housing for several years, I moved into the credentialing side of travel healthcare. I worked very closely with the travel healthcare professionals to ensure all the facility and state credential requirements were met prior to their start.
More recently I worked within the entertainment industry for a talent agency in the contract administration department. I performed client data management and contract administration ensuring that buyers were meeting their contractual obligations to the clients. Working in this capacity I participated in several volunteer outreach opportunities and realized I wanted to do work that was more in service to the public and meaningful to me personally, as healthcare education very much is.
I’m very excited for my new role as Office Manager with NNLM Pacific Southwest Region. As I am new to the UC system my main focuses are to master the various systems, learn the UCLA policies and procedures, support the training and outreach team, and take care of the office’s accounting and operational needs. Additional fun tidbits about me include a BA in Cinema and Television Arts. I love the art of storytelling, visually and written. I’m currently all in to The Handmaids Tale; that’s my must-watch TV! My creative outlet is writing. I’m a mom to two daughters whom I adore. I’m originally from San Diego so authentic Mexican food is my vice and fills my soul with comfort.
I look forward to working with you all and learning even more about the NNLM and how I can support the organization. Please feel free to reach out and give me a shout!
Ciao for now!
