I would be Wonder Woman. She is loving, kind and stands up for those who cannot stand up for themselves. She fights for those who need her help and does not ask for anything in return.

Welcoming Becky Hughes to the STS Technical Services’ Family

Becky Hughes

Becky Hughes comes to us with years of professional experience. She joined our team a few week back as its newest Technical Recruiter working RPO for Wacker Neuson in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin.

If you are interested in getting to know Becky, check out the Q&A we did with her shortly after she was onboarded.

Becky, welcome to the STS Technical Services’ family. We are thrilled to have you!

Tell us a little about your professional background, education and / or experience?

I went to school at the University of Wisconsin – La Crosse and graduated with a degree in Management (HR emphasis.) I’ve had the opportunity to work for a handful of diverse companies in the La Crosse area, spanning a variety of industries (organic foods, healthcare, child care, public accounting, manufacturing and recycling, marine construction, and banking.)

I’ve enjoyed the wide range of responsibilities in the HR field and have had the opportunity to be involved in labor relations/contract negotiation, complex employee relations situations, talent development, succession planning, compensation & benefits, performance management, and onboarding/offboarding. Like for many, the pandemic put life in perspective, and I recognized quite clearly that recruitment and talent acquisition are my preferred areas of concentration within the HR field. I started my career as a Recruiter at Organic Valley, and I hope to focus the rest of my career in talent acquisition as well. What’s more fun and rewarding than offering someone a new job that they’ll love?! 🙂

What do you like to do for fun when you are not working?

When I’m not working, my life pretty much revolves around my daughters (Marley, a sophomore & Maya, a 7th grader.) I’m not a stereotypical “dance mom,” but most of my evenings consist of driving them to and from dance class and Nutcracker rehearsals! The three of us love to bond over Netflix binges, ice cream, and coffee – just call us the Gilmore Girls. 😉

I love the outdoors – hiking, kayaking, boating, morel mushroom hunting, and exploring. I tend to be cautious by nature, but I do love a good thrill (rollercoasters, skydiving, zip lines, etc.) or hitting the road for a long road trip with a solid soundtrack. In my humble opinion, concerts are underrated, and I can’t wait to hit some more shows post-pandemic! Foo Fighters, Jason Isbell, and Bruce Springsteen are at the top of my list, but I will definitely see Pearl Jam, Taylor Swift, and Garth Brooks again at some point! Otherwise, give me a good book and a hammock or fireplace, and I’ll stay out of your way for hours.

Oh, did I mention I grew up in Rochester, MN, and I’m a faithful Vikings fan?! (They WILL win a Super Bowl before I die!) Skol!

If you could be any superhero, which superhero would you be and why?

Hands down, I’d go with She-Ra! She is known for being a positive role model for girls as well as her strength (ability to lift grown men, robots, boulders, and buildings over her head), acrobatics, and speed. Her character is also nurturing and empathetic with an ability to communicate with animals. She is mostly non-violent and engages in combat only as a last resort. Instead, she uses her intelligence and wits to outsmart her enemies – and how much more powerful can you get than that?! 🙂

What do you like to do for fun when you are not working?

If you could be any superhero, which superhero would you be and why?

Superman because of his multitude of superpowers!

Trish Washburn

As our team continues to grow, we will continue to formally welcome / introduce each new employees to our clients, colleagues, business partners and friends via these short “Meet the Team” articles.

Next up on our list today is Trish Washburn. Trish joins our team in Wisconsin as its newest Technical Recruiter. In addition to being a great worker and a valued asset to our organization, Trish is also an accomplished track and field star and a former yoga studio owner.

Tell us a little about your professional background, education and / or experience?

I have a BA in Communications from University of Iowa where I was a track scholarship for 100M hurdles. I come from a corporate background of working as an executive in Software as a Service where I handled gap analysis and implementations at customer sites all over the U.S. I also have a background in leading paradigm shifts in companies who have made acquisitions and again, doing process improvements by implementing best practices so both parent company and newly acquired company can streamline and improve. My favorite job aside from being a  professional water skier back in the day is owning and running my yoga studio, Soleil Lune Yoga Center, for the last 20 years. It is a gift to be able to watch people transform for the better and improve their lives inside and out.

What do you like to do for fun when you are not working?

What do you like to do for fun when you are not working? Yoga of course! . I also lead a yoga teacher certification program as well as continuing education credit courses for existing yoga teachers so I enjoy traveling and leading those trainings.

I also like doing anything active and outdoors. Hiking in the mountains, surfing, swimming, biking, and trail running are my favorites. I have 6 kids and 6 grandkids so spending time with them is always a joy and absolute privilege. It is never a dull moment!

If you could be any superhero, which superhero would you be and why?

Superhero…that is a great question. I really don’t have any deep longing to be a superhero, but is there one that talks to animals? That would be pretty cool. Being able to read people’s minds would be a superpower I would love to have. I also remember watching a cartoon Super Friends when I was young and there were this brother/sister team called The Wonder Twins or something like that and they could shapeshift into anything and they had a pet monkey named Gleek. That sounds pretty cool, too.

Maybe not the most powerful, but I would love to be Deadpool because I could only dream of being that sarcastic and snarky.  It really is a superpower in itself!

Welcoming Cheng Lee to the STS Technical Services’ Family

I have two daughters. They are the light of my life, but they are also a handful. In my house, there is never any silence and it’s go, go, go from sunup ’til sundown. I love the energy and the beauty they bring to the table, but I am not having anymore children. Two is plenty for me. I am done. Seriously. You couldn’t pay me enough to have another one.

For our newest Technical Recruiter, however, having only two children is a distant memory. In fact, Cheng Lee has six kids all under the age of 11. That’s right… six kids! I don’t know how he and his wife Mai do it, but from what I can tell, they not only make it work, they make it look easy.

Cheng joined our team in Brookfield, Wisconsin about a week ago, and we are really excited to have him on board. And for those who would like to get to know him a little better, take a few minutes to read the Q&A we did. As you will see, Cheng is a terrific guy, a great father and an incredible Recruiter with years of experience and awards under his belt. We are extremely grateful to have him, and we would like to take a moment now to formally welcome him to our family.

Tell us a little about your professional background, education and / or experience?

I worked in sales at AT&T for about four years. I then moved into a recruiting role at Allegis/Aerotek where I spent three years and was selected as the “Recruiter of the Year” in 2020.

After a conversation with Lisa Homewood, I truly felt that STS Technical Services would be a better fit for me. Here, I felt like I could grow both personally and professionally, and that is why I decided to take the job.

And for those who are curious, I have a Degree in Liberal Arts from the University of Wisconsin Marathon County (recently merged and is now the University of Wisconsin of Stevens Point).

What do you like to do for fun when you are not working?

My house is like a zoo, and there is always something for me to do when I am not working!

I really enjoy being father. I have an awesome wife, Mai Kia, who supports what I do (at least, I like to think that she does).

As Bryan alluded to above, my wife and I have six awesome kids: Mikaylah (10), Chloe (10), Katie (9), Lily (6), Zayne (5) and lastly, Ethan (1). As you can imagine, they keep me busy.

I enjoy reading any type of book from historical, fiction, non-fiction or anything that has to do with self-development. I also enjoy fishing, playing basketball, football, biking and taking walks with the kids.

Last but not least, I also have two dogs; an American Bully named Doo-Doo and a Terrier named Oliver.

If you could be any superhero, which superhero would you be and why?

I am torn between Superman and Batman, though Batman may have the edge for me. Either way, I truly believe in humility, humbleness and working hard. I also like to think that I can take a negative situation and turn it into a positive situation while remaining selfless enough to help out humanity even when some individuals may not understand one’s true intention(s).

Welcoming Amanda Gilliam to the STS Technical Services’ Family

Amanda Gilliam

You don’t have to have a background in aviation to thrive in our world. In fact, many who join our staffing team come from industries like marketing, sales, psychology, business development and even social work; to name a few. Our team is unique. Our team is eclectic. Our team is diverse, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

For us, it’s not where you’ve been that matters but where you want to go. And when we first met Amanda Gilliam, we knew right away that she was ambitious, focused and driven to great things. That’s all that really mattered to us, and we hired her on the spot.

Amanda joined STS Technical Services this past week as its newest Program Assistant. She will be working directly with our crew in Oscoda, Michigan, and we are thrilled to have her on board.

For anyone who would like to get to know Amanda a little bit, check out the quick Q&A we did below.

Thanks, for taking the time, everyone.

Amanda, welcome to the team! We are so very grateful to have you.

Tell us a little about your professional background, education and / or experience?

I am a recent graduate from Saginaw Valley State University in Michigan with a bachelor’s degree in social work. During my time in the social work field, I worked with Department of Health and Human Services in the Foster Care and Child Protective Services Department. I’m new to the aviation world and very excited to learn!

What do you like to do for fun when you are not working?

If I’m not working, some of the things I do for fun include going on a boat, playing Fortnite with my 7-year-old nephew, going on bike rides, or re-watching The Real Housewives of New York City for the 30th time.

If you could be any superhero, which superhero would you be and why?

If I could be any superhero I would be The Toxic Avenger because he found a way to make falling into a barrel of toxic waste while turning into a scary monster a positive thing and a way to help others. I think we could all use a mindset like that (lol).

Welcoming Maggie Artnak to the STS Technical Services’ Family

Maggie Artnak

Not everyone takes a straight path in life, and that’s more than OK. In fact, those who embrace a zig-zag approach often turn out to be far more interesting than those who simply do what’s expected and never veer.

At STS Technical Services, we applaud uniqueness and embrace the journey of living; wherever the road may lead. For somehow, someway, we all end up where we should be, and we are so very glad that Maggie Artnak found her way to us.

For those whom have yet to meet Maggie, she is our newest Operations Specialists based out of Brookfield, Wisconsin. Maggie started working with STS Technical Services earlier this week, and we are very excited to have her on board.

If you would like to get to know Maggie a little bit, check out the quick Q&A we did below. And before you go, we’d just like to say thanks for taking the time. Maggie, welcome to the team!

Tell us a little about your professional background, education and / or experience?

I went to the University of MN, Twin Cities and have a B.A. in Child Psychology. I lived briefly in California years ago to nanny for one of my nieces. I’ve worked in several fields such as medical, mental health, hospitality, and child care, in mostly administrative, training, and customer service roles. I lived in MN for many years after college and moved back to WI, where I’m from, in 2016 to be closer to family.

What do you like to do for fun when you are not working?

Volleyball is my main hobby. I play in a few leagues currently. I played varsity and club all through high school, club for the University of MN through college, and played for Santa Monica College while I lived in CA. I also enjoy live music, costume/theme events, road trips back to MN, spending time with my family here and around the country, trying new restaurants and breweries, and making improvements on my house.

If you could be any superhero, which superhero would you be and why?

This is a tough question but I would probably say Captain Marvel because she is nearly invincible, extremely powerful, and can fly.
