Stephanie Hess Jarrell – Director of Human Resources

JOB TITLE:  Director of Human Resources

LOCATION:  Corporate Office – Huntington, WV

EDUCATION:  Master’s Degree (MS), Human Resource Management, Marshall University; Bachelor’s Degree (BA), Psychology, Elon University

JOB DUTIES:  I supervise and provide consultation to management on strategic staffing plans, compensation, benefits, training and development. I also serve as a link between management and employees.

WHY I DO THIS:  I really enjoy creating relationships with the employees and getting to know them personally, as well as seeing them grow professionally. It also makes me really happy when I see an employee thriving in their work environment due to certain policies or changes that I’ve implemented.

WORKING AT OVP/AHS:  OVP and AHS are both family oriented, which extremely important to me. We’ve grown as a company over the years and aren’t necessarily considered a “small” company anymore. But there is still that feeling of being part of a work family. I know every employee that works for our company by name – and I want them to know that they can always come to me with any problem. Working for a company that has that kind of “open communication mentality” has been very rewarding.

OUTSIDE OF WORK:  I really enjoy spending time with my family, friends and animals. And I like doing yoga, watching a good show or reading a good book.
