Miranda Pelky Honored for Her Selfless Dedication to Others

2021 Q4 Wave the Flag Winner

Geneva recognizes excellence in employees who go above and beyond the normal scope of their work while demonstrating Geneva’s core values and advancing military medicine. The Wave the Flag award is presented quarterly to an employee who exceeds expectations and exhibits Geneva’s core values which are Innovation, Quality, Superior Customer Service, Integrity, Teamwork, and Respect For All.

The 2021 Q4 Wave the Flag recipient was awarded to Senior Award Manager Miranda Pelkey based at the Corporate office in Tacoma, WA. Miranda was nominated by Evan Strandberg, one of Miranda’s colleagues, for exhibiting Geneva’s core value of teamwork.

“Miranda has been the ultimate team player when it comes to moving projects forward, accomplishing departmental goals, and ensuring that everyone feels confident carrying out their daily tasks,” said Evan Strandberg. “She selflessly makes herself available to make sure I understand how to approach certain tasks or answer any questions I have at any time. Without hesitation, Miranda is always willing to set aside time to help others understand how to tackle a task or project. For example, she is a guru when it comes to clauses and provisions related to the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) as well as terms and conditions of varying contract types. She is able to break things down into layman’s terms so you feel knowledgeable and are able to take that information and use it to educate others.”
