Judi Beachum, Vice President, Human Resources
Judi Beachum is the vice president for human resources for Ovation Fertility. She joined the organization in November 2021.
Beachum’s personal and professional mantra is, “If serving is below you, leadership is beyond you.” This focus has driven her to work in healthcare for most of her career. Her core mission and vision are focused on improving the lives of people – whether they are patients or employees. She believes strongly that an organization is responsible for providing its employees with the tools they need to perform at their highest potential. At Ovation, this is how we deliver superior services to the people we serve.
Before joining Ovation, Beachum served in HR leadership roles for Tennessee Oncology, HCA, St. Thomas Health Systems, Pierian Biosciences and MedCore Medical Group. She also owned a business, Abundant Resources, which provided professional consulting and executive placement services. Her work history has provided her with vast experience with culture definition and recognition, mergers and acquisitions, executive and management development, succession planning, identifying future leaders, recruiting, compensation, benefits, employee relations, and compliance with labor laws throughout the United States.
Joining Ovation allows Beachum to celebrate the intersection of her professional expertise and her personal story. Her daughter was donor-conceived, and she feels that working with Ovation provides her the opportunity to improve the lives of people in a field that changed her life. “Passion” is the word she most uses to describe her desire to be part of the Ovation team.
Originally from Northwest Tennessee, Beachum completed her Bachelor of Science degree at University of Tennessee at Martin. She moved to Nashville to complete her Master of Arts degree in industrial and organizational psychology at Middle Tennessee State University. She has been a member of the national and local Society of Human Resources Management for her entire career.
