Congratulations to Shay Wisham, Socket’s You-Make-The-Difference award winner for June!
Shay has been with Socket for just a little over six months, but she’s already made a huge impression with her fellow Service Delivery Coordinators, as well as all those who depend on them to keep our projects moving and our new business customers happy.
“She’s been amazing to work with ever since I started,” said a coworker who nominated her. “She is on top of everything, even things that aren’t her responsibility. And she never shies away from helping new people, or veterans who need an extra hand.”
Shay is also able to bring an interesting perspective to her job. While her current role involves working with Socket’s business clients (often coordinating with their IT team), one of her past jobs was working for a business client of Socket’s – as part of their IT team.
In her free time, she enjoys relaxing, “which never happens.” With three boys, it’s no wonder. Her eldest is a football player at Central Methodist University, and Shay can count on one hand the number of games she’s missed over the last 14 years. Her weekends are spent with her wife trying new recipes, hitting the trails, spoiling their granddaughter, and volunteering at church, as well as helping her other two teenage boys with their projects and essays.
“My favorite part of working at Socket is the environment and people,” said Shay. “Starting a new job is scary - not so much because of the work, but because you want to be in a positive environment. When the workload does get hectic, my co-workers make it all worth doing.”
