“I really appreciate how Vertin emphasizes teamwork and collaboration. I also love that I get to be a part of making a difference in the lives of those we serve. It feels great to know we are all working together toward a common goal of helping people.”

Karisa started as an office manager at one of the funeral home locations and is a perfect example of the growth and opportunity Vertin offers its associates. With a degree in graphic design, Karisa transitioned into a marketing role as the need for more design expertise increased. Now, she is responsible for designing the marketing and consumer materials for Vertin and all related affiliates.

“Vertin is not what you would picture for a larger organization. Instead of doing things in a cookie cutter fashion, they understand the different needs and unique personalities of each individual location. We’re also encouraged to implement and share fresh ideas. With support and resources always at our fingertips, we can focus on serving families.”

Mike and Lara have enjoyed working together in funeral service for many years. What they find particularly impressive about Vertin is the emphasis on keeping each location in tune with their community. As a location manager, Mike combines organizational direction with autonomous on-site leadership to help his staff and location prosper. Lara, who serves multiple roles at the funeral home, eagerly takes advantage of the opportunities to learn and grow as they continue providing exceptional care to those they serve.

“Working for Vertin is motivating and makes me feel like I am a part of something bigger. I really like how they are progressive and forward thinking. To anyone considering a position with Vertin, I would say absolutely go for it. They will help you grow and will provide you with amazing support and opportunities along the way.”

After completing a clinical at an affiliate funeral home, Katie says Vertin helped match her with a perfect fit for the next step, encouraging her to try out many different roles and responsibilities as a funeral director intern. Katie sees immense value in the mentorship she has received through Vertin, so her future professional goals involve training, teaching, or management within the organization.
