What brand(s) do you work for? Camping World, Good Sam What other teams do you work with the most? I work very closely with our Payroll team, Compliance team and Human Capital teams, especially in regards to leave management. I love working with such a diverse group of individuals who truly have made me feel like I’m part of the camping world family. What is your favorite thing about your job and why? My list could go on forever, but I really enjoy helping employees and managers navigate through difficult topics such as health benefits and employee leaves, and providing them with tools to be better equipped to make more informed decisions. In addition Camping Wold has made me feel like I’m part of a family during some of the hardest personal moments of my life. My teammates and managers truly care not only on a professional level but on a personal level and that speaks volumes to the type of organization that camping world is. What made you interested in working in the outdoor recreation industry? I love the outdoors and traveling, so being able to work in an industry that is 100% about that is something that I am passionate about. How has Camping World Holdings helped you succeed as a woman in the workplace? How is this different than other companies you have worked at?: Camping World has helped me succeed as a woman by having wonderful female role models to look up to and guide me, including my own manager. Camping World has provided me with opportunities to be creative and also has seen my potential and allowed me to pursue my Certified Employee Benefits Certification (CEBS), which I am currently in the process of doing. They value my work and allow me to be my genuine self.

They also trust the work that I have done and have provided me with leadership opportunities such as managing an intern during the summer intern program and training new team members that have joined the team.

This is the first organization that has allowed me to pursue this certification. In addition, they saw early on my abilities and recognized them and elevated my role from a Benefits Specialist to a Sr. Benefits Specialist. Lastly, they are the first organization where every employee has treated each other with respect and dignity.
What advice would you give to someone applying to a job at Camping World? If you are looking for an organization that allows you to be your genuine self, supports you each step of the way and allows you to pave your own path to success, this is the place for you.
