Finding an addition to one’s company who is equal parts reliable, capable, personable, and ambitious is sometimes difficult to find. However, meeting Ciarra 4 months ago as she interviewed at Leomhann Enterprises, we knew this wouldn’t be the case. A recent graduate, hard worker, world traveler – she was exactly what our company was seeking in our next Management Trainee. And since Ciarra’s hire before Thanksgiving, she has continued to prove us right every day, earning March’s “Featured Team Member” spot!
Born and raised in Amherst, OH, 45 minutes west of Cleveland, Ciarra grew up in a large family as 1 of 4 children! A middle child, she enjoyed being the center of attention and was considering extremely outgoing, participating in gymnastics, ballet, and finally finding her niche in volleyball. Throughout high school and college, Ciarra kept as active as possible in organizations ranging from Student Council, health clubs, philanthropy events and business fraternities. Following in her older sister’s footsteps, she graduated from Ohio University in May 2015 with her Bachelor’s in Health Administration & Business.
Immediately following graduation, Ciarra began recruiting for an agency that placed doctors and nurses in hospitals, and while enjoying her experience, knew it wasn’t a career she wanted long-term. Moving next into the hospitality/bartending industry, Ciarra found a passion for working face to face with customers but wasn’t exercising her love for travel. She set a goal, saved, packed a bag, and backpacked throughout Europe for 2 months before the holidays (impressive, we know). It was in London, Barcelona, Paris, Greece, and Italy she had an epiphany that her next career, upon returning to the states, had to offer travel opportunity.
Not even 2 weeks after returning home, Ciarra submitted her resume, was contacted by Leomhann Enterprises Human Resources, and then the rest was history! Since her time with the company, she’s traveled to Idaho, Columbus, Chicago next month, and New Orleans in June! Ciarra has improved already in her confidence, communications, and leadership ability, quickly becoming a trusted team member for both our executive team and new hires.
With ambitions of moving outside of Ohio, Ciarra looks to expand Leomhann Enterprises’s reach to anywhere warmer than Cleveland (haha)! She aspires to move into an Assistant Management position by the fall, and then a branch management role by early 2018! She credits the company’s leadership in CEO, Jeff Crawford, as one of the reasons she chose to work at Leomhann Enterprises, and thanks him for his continued mentorship and example as a crucial part of her growth.
If you can’t find Ciarra in the office, you can find her spending time with one of her favorite people, her 96-year-old grandma, hanging out with loved ones, outdoors or reading How To Win Friends & Influence People. Be sure to follow Leomhann Enterprises on Twitter to follow more of her career growth and office events and Ciarra, know that you’re a rockstar! Keep up the great work and keep making us proud!
