Our vision for diversity at Precoa is to cultivate a workplace as diverse as the families we serve across the country. A workplace composed of people from a variety of backgrounds leads to diversity of thought and increased innovation.
We kicked off our diversity initiative in 2016. This page provides transparency and motivation to keep us moving toward our vision.
FPC Regional Manager
Our Funeral Planning Center is as successful as it is because of talented people like Cherana Harris. Over her years at Precoa, Cherana has led her team to set thousands of appointments with families across the country. Outside the office, you can find Cherana reading, dancing, and spending time with friends and family. If you go back far enough, you might even find her cameo appearance on the television show Sesame Street.
Senior Account Manager
As an account manager, Sam Gulpen plays an integral part in helping Precoa move forward. He serves as the main point of contact for many of our funeral homes, counselors, and sales managers.
Sam was a competitive gymnast while growing up in the Netherlands. In 2012, he moved to Oregon to pursue his graduate education in Applied Economics at OSU. He now lives in Portland along with his partner, Scott, and their dog, Sutter.
Data Team Supervisor
One of our original employees, Data Team Supervisor Kathy Grahn, has been quietly shaping Precoa’s data infrastructure for more than 13 years. The Stayton, Oregon native oversees a team within our IT department that catalogs virtually every person interested in pre-arranging throughout our national network, supporting our Planning Center and, ultimately, counselors with remarkably fast, accurate information. Kathy’s our go-to-person to solve almost any informational or logistical mystery while continuing to dazzle us with her finely crafted treats each December.
Full Stack Engineer
As a software engineer, Amrit Saini develops computer applications that make life easier for all of us here at Precoa. Before coming to Precoa, Amrit built the CRM used by the Outlook Group from the ground up, leveraging machine learning to speed up lead searches. His coworkers will tell you Amrit brings a smile and spark of enthusiasm every day he comes into the office.
