Wanda Martinez-Shared Services Manager-20 Year HealthSTAR Team Member

Wanda, Leigh and Natalie at 2019 Holiday Party

If we were in the office, right about now you would see Wanda Martinez spreading buzz for our Holiday party while selling raffle tickets.  This December marks 20 years that Wanda has been at HealthSTAR!

Initially joining the company as a Program Manager, Wanda’s can do attitude and “magic” problem solving skills, have earned her her current position of Shared Services Manager. The Shared Services Manager was a non-existent position when she first joined HealthSTAR.  Also, the Venue & Event Coordination department was not part of the company then and the function was outsourced.

Chris Sweeney approached Wanda on bringing event coordination in-house, and based on some of her prior job experience she was able to assist getting this new offering off the ground.  At the time, Wanda frequently traveled to places like Florida and Las Vegas as well as many other destinations, to run on-site meetings and events.  Over the years, Wanda has enthusiastically taken on several roles within the company and especially has enjoyed helping out with the holiday party and assisting our Office Manager with showers and parties, etc.

During her tenure, Wanda has seen HealthSTAR evolve and she says she tries her hardest to make sure we have a great team.  She values learning as well as teaching/training her co-workers.  According to Wanda, “Any problem can be solved with patience and intelligence.”  “HealthSTAR is a unique place with many growth opportunities.  I love what I do. It keeps me occupied and I love to learn and train others.  Everyone here is like family to me.”  Wanda attributes her professional success at HealthSTAR to being a smart, patient person with great people skills and an outstanding personality. 

Wanda is originally from Puerto Rico and is bilingual. She moved to NJ when she was 5 years old and then back to Puerto Rico at age 13.  She later relocated back to NJ, where she finished up her schooling.

She lives in Clifton, NJ and has 3 grown children and 2 grandchildren, Penelope and Anthony. She loves face timing with her grandkids.

Wanda actively participates in her Church, working with the school children and handling event planning. Wanda also loves to cook, entertain guests, and watch sports.  She is the ultimate event planner in both her professional and personal life!

We would like to congratulate you, Wanda, on 20 years at HealthSTAR.  Thanks for sharing and spreading “your magic” with us ❤.
