New Beginnings at HealPay

By: Latoya Irby


We are excited to introduce our newest intern, Hakki Tomanbay, to HealPay!

Hakki emailed us a few weeks ago and began ‘hanging out’ at our office. After several weeks of job shadowing, we decided he would be a good addition to our team. Here is his story:

“I am a college student with little to no fear. Call me crazy but I will go for something without seeing the light at the end of the tunnel! I think this mindset makes me a great asset to a disruptive startup like HealPay.

After I caught wind of them looking for interns I immediately started inquiring with Lancelot & Erick about their business model and the technology they use. My focus was to know everything about their business. I am studying computer engineering but am also enrolled in a public speaking class. I decided to hit two birds with one stone and elected to give my speech on HealPay. My job was to give a persuasive speech on why collection agencies should use their SettlementApp.

I worked with Erick to get my pitch down and was able to deliver a solid presentation to a group of students who were left wanting to know more. It felt great. Creating something from nothing – fascinating.

It was an uncomfortable experience, but I believe that is how you learn and grow. By putting myself into an uncomfortable position I was able to push my boundaries and open new doors.”
