Work Philosophy

I believe that a person's work should be an extension of their passion in life, the thing that makes them want to make a difference in the world.  To that end, I have pursued several careers that haved filled that purpose at that time in my life.  Regardless of the career to which I have been called, I have striven to be the best employee possible.  I commit my time and effort and work diligently to better myself through positive professional opportunities.  I enjoy advancing within my profession and serving as a leader in a variety of capacities. Most importantly, I want to remember that the health and happiness of my customer is the reason I work, and that I want to serve my customer in the best way I know.  I have had the privilege of having young adults, physicians, and nurses as my customers.  I now look forward to having patients in need of nutritional counseling and guidance as my future customers that will benefit from my expertise and desire to help.
