Happy Friday! We hope you are ready to celebrate Labor Day weekend! To start off the long holiday weekend, we wanted to tell you a little bit about Andi Prins! Andi is an Audit Supervisor and has been with the SpendMend team for almost 24 years. She describes SpendMend in three words as, “Family, Variety, Challenge.” Her passion to serve the healthcare industry is shown through dedication and hard work! She enjoys the challenges she faces at work everyday, and always strives to learn new things. Her favorite company in-house event is the potluck! She loves participating and spending quality time with her team. Andi loves to bring her cheesy potatoes, and shouts out LeAnne’s eclair dessert. We cannot wait to try those dishes at the next potluck soon! Outside of work, Andi’s favorite activity is to spend her time outside! She especially enjoys the fall season most of all. With summer coming to a close - the autumn weather is just around the corner! We know Andi is looking forward to it. Another fun fact is that she has two small dogs named Harley and Davidson. Hmm, sounds familiar? Funny enough, she always wanted to own a Harley because she liked the sound! Instead of becoming a bike owner, she substituted with some fury family members instead. Read the full interview below to learn about Andi’s “Night Time Ritual” with Harley and Davidson! 

Andi is an exceptional Audit Supervisor, and we had several of her co-workers express how they value her on the team. Travis Wheeler, Audit Manager, said “Andi is very motivated, she always strives to exceed expectations and isn’t afraid to roll up her sleeves when faced with challenges”.  It was great getting to know a little more about Andi and we really appreciate all the hard work she does! Thank you, Andi!
