Director of National Field Training, Church’s Chicken

Last year, White was put in charge of the development and implementation of training programs for nearly 25,000 Church’s Chicken employees. Within her first month as a director she created a completely redesigned training program that focused on using technology, producing all materials in a digital format, and involving actual employees in production — and she did this with a budget of less than $100,000.

A full system conversion took place in just under 10 months and has been regarded as a significant positive change by all of the company’s teams. White is known for leading with integrity, and bringing enthusiasm to every project she works on.
