It makes sense, after you think about it.
After hearing the many compliments fellow workers have about Angela Hoobler's strong work ethic and skills and her cooperative nature, you wonder where such an attitude and such ethics come from.
Ms. Hoobler, the purchasing supervisor for the Kansas Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services, has been with the agency two years. She came from the Department of Revenue, where she worked in procurement for eight years, and previously was an office manager for the Board of Pharmacy.
She has made an impression in a short time at SRS.
‘Customer-oriented' are today's catch words for what Ms. Hoobler's father, Jim Buoy, did as a funeral director in Concordia for 43 years.
"My dad had the strongest work ethic I ever knew," Ms. Hoobler said. "That is probably where I get the ‘do what's right, and use common sense to figure out what's right.'
"One thing that kind of irritates me is how people treat each other," Ms. Hoobler said. "Dad said ‘if you
"I guess I take the words ‘civil servant' to heart," she said. don't want to be treated that way, don't treat other people that way.' Even if you don't approve of someone's position or how they behave, be considerate."
As purchasing supervisor, Ms. Hoobler is involved in some very large purchases and contracts made by the agency, including the Medicaid Management Information System contract ($160 million), the foster care ($95 million), adoption ($34 million), and family preservation ($12.9 million) contracts, and the Electronic Benefit Transfer System contract (about $14 million).
Ms. Hoobler said she would describe leadership as doing a good job.
"I guess I take the words ‘civil servant' to heart," she said.
Ms. Hoobler firmly believes that communicating well with others is key in the job of procurement and contract negotiations.
"My philosophy is, I want to do a good job and I believe I have a skill," she said.
For Ms. Hoobler, communicating includes never being afraid to ask a question. When she is involved in a contract discussion, she is eager to know all she can.
"I don't want to say you have to have knowledge before going in, but you have to be dogged about asking questions," she said. "I'm never afraid to ask a question. You've got to work to understand the whole picture. Everybody else at the table may know the answer. But it makes me successful if I'm not afraid to ask questions."
Ms. Deagle, who worked with Ms. Hoobler on several contracts while Ms. Deagle was in the Health Care Policy division of SRS, confirmed this ‘doggedness' in Ms. Hoobler about asking questions. Ms. Deagle, who worked with Ms. Hoobler on several contracts while Ms. Deagle was in the Health Care Policy division of SRS, confirmed this ‘doggedness' in Ms. Hoobler about asking questions.
Ms. Hoobler said her first supervisor in purchasing, Sharon Ybarra (formerly Sharon Haas) taught her the profession.
Ms. Ybarra preceded Ms. Hoobler in her current position.
But Ms. Hoobler thinks her experience as an office manager with the Kansas Board of Pharmacy was excellent experience. She said it was a very small agency, with just six employees.
"With a small office, you learn self-sufficiency," she said. "You have to. You have to do what it takes to get the job done. Sometimes, that meant going ‘outside the box.' You have to make decisions you normally wouldn't make."
Ms. Hoobler, who supervises four people in the procurement unit, said she tries to lead by example.
"I view my role as a leader to guide them; build their purchasing knowledge," she said.
