Each month we take a moment to recognize a Chapter Member and share a little bit about them. We hope you find their stories engaging!
Name: Amy Sagan
Position and Employer: Senior Trainer - Transamerica
How long have you been with your employer and/or in your position? I have been with Transamerica for 15 years, and a trainer for about 12 of those years.
How long have you been a member of ATD Hawkeye Chapter? I have been a member of the ATD Hawkeye Chapter for 10 years.
What is a typical workday like for you? Having just returned from maternity leave, I am still playing catch up a bit. A lot changes in 12 weeks! Currently though I am working on learning a new product with the intent of facilitating trainings later this summer. I also update procedures and work on various other projects that require some training or documentation updates.
What do you enjoy most about ATD Hawkeye Chapter? I don’t think I can pick just one thing! I enjoy that over the years I have been able to meet so many people, from various backgrounds, that are so passionate about learning and development. I have also very much enjoyed the times I have been able to help plan our Fall Conference and Non-Profit Training Day.
What is your favorite part of the learning and development field? I love seeing the transformation that can occur. Whether it be an individual’s growth during new hire training, a team member expanding/honing their knowledge and skills, or implementing a new training program. I enjoy seeing the change and growth.
What are your hobbies or favorite things to do with your time? Outside of work, I spend most of my time with my husband Nick, and two sons, Elijah (5) and Isaac (3 months). On the weekends, you’ll often find us doing crafts, science experiments, or playing/exploring outside. I try and fit in some personal reading time too!
