He takes time to listen and makes sure all team members are included in providing ideas to make thoughtful and inclusive decisions. He has established a renewed and reinvigorated spirit of cooperation and collaboration with many other people. His honesty, friendly and considerate nature make him a future leader.

“I love this role which gives me an opportunity to exhibit my talents. I have a degree of control and freedom within my job. Management trusts me to produce high quality work and results. There is a genuine spirit of cooperation and goal to achieve the mission of eliminating needless blindness. The mission of caring for people while they suffer is one of the most sacred trusts that exist in the health care field. I get great satisfaction in being in a role in which I can make a small difference in someone’s life.”
