Host Barbara Trautlein welcomes Christine Healy, Vice President of Human Resources for Performance Food Group in Temple, Texas. Ms. Healy firmly believes that as our workforce becomes more diverse from a gender perspective, women need to know they can be successful in many roles in manufacturing. She encourages everyone to "become a champion". A champion can see beyond the outside appearance and identify the talents and abilities of a person and help them get slotted into the right job for them.
Although a largest portion of Chris’ professional HR experience has been in manufacturing, she also has experience in banking, health care, printing, distribution, and trucking, and retail. Chris presently works as the Vice President of Human Resources for Performance Food Group in Temple, Texas. Previous to this, she served as the Director of HR for Sysco in Las Vegas and as the HR Business Partner for Wells Enterprises, Inc., (Blue Bunny ice cream) in St. George, UT. One of her passions is to teach, so Chris serves as adjunct faculty for University of Phoenix teaching Human Capital courses, certification courses for the International Federation of Employee Benefits, and she guest speaks at various professional groups. Chris’ educational background includes a PhD in Organizational Psychology, MA in Human Resources, and a BS in Business Administration. Aside from this, Chris holds many certifications to include the Professional in Human Resources (PHR); SHRM- CP; Group Benefits Associate (GBA); Compensation Management Specialist (CMS); Certified Employee Benefits Specialist (CEBS); Birkman Method; Predictive Index; Lominger Competencies; Achieve Global; DDI; Crucial Conversations, and Industrial and Office Ergonomics.
