What do you do at Guardian Pharmacy of Wisconsin?
My role at Guardian Pharmacy is to build, strengthen and nurture the partnerships we already have in place and the partnerships we are seeking to develop. Much like the art of Kintsugi (putting broken pottery pieces back together with gold). We can create an even stronger and more beautiful piece of art. In our case – we can through our partnerships – create something more unique, wonderful, and resilient. Caring for your residents is not just business to us. It is personal.
How do I try and make people feel? I want everyone I interact with to feel appreciated, valued, validated, and heard.
What is your background?
I grew up in the town of Pewaukee. Pewaukee is a small town approximately 25 miles west of the city of Milwaukee.
Having been an Administrator/Director of Business Operations in the Assisted Living and Hospice world over the last 17 years, I understand and appreciate the unique challenges and opportunities each day brings, not only for your residents and their families, but with your staff as well. The demands are high, but the rewards are equally fulfilling.
What are the values that drive you?
Character – for me – this is who you are when no one is looking or when you have nothing to gain from the situation. Do you do the right thing? Do your actions line up with your words?
Competence – being open and willing to learn. To challenge oneself. To grow. does this person’s work reflect a sense of excellence? Do they have a history of growing in their given skill set? Are they willing to expand what they know to tackle new situations that face them? Weigh competency along with character and you are on the right path, BUT you are not done yet.
Chemistry – the “gut” instinct. It is hard to quantify other than to say you know when it is there. Good chemistry makes for good teamwork; great chemistry makes for great Teamwork.
Sincerity – the quality of being free from pretense, deceit, or hypocrisy.
What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?
- I would not say I am a foodie, but I love to eat out and find unique and fun restaurants.
- My wife and I are enjoying being empty nesters after successfully raising two strong and competent young men.
- Marriage Mentor – Couples in the process of getting married and for those whose marriages are struggling.
- I play lead guitar for our church worship team.
