Let’s just start by thanking Dick Fetter & Dan McQuiston again for their help in my getting my first job with Pfizer.
I am thankful to Daren Sink & Bruce Fleischmann for taking a chance on a young 22 year old, right out of college, with little experience and lots of energy! Words cannot express my deepest gratitude as I could always see your faith and belief in me! Please know I always give you credit for taking that chance on me and I still want to make you proud of that decision.
I am thankful for Clark Mohar & Kevin Malone for your willingness to take a chance on a still very young 24 year old with lots of energy! It was during those years that I started to transition others belief in me into a faith in myself.
- Kevin – you also helped me to understand the importance of separating the person from the title. That has helped me a great deal through the years!
I am thankful for Dennis Green & Jake Friedman for your willingness to take a chance on a very nervous 26 year old.
- Dennis – That was truly a pivotal time in my career as that started my passion for training & development. I was also able to truly connect with the many new faces of Pfizer. I will forever be grateful for that opportunity. You encouraged me to take on new opportunities, and supported me through the successes and the challenges.
- Jake – I thank you for teaching me the importance of having a sponsor (even if you don’t know you have one). You also had such a positive impact on me with your desire to connect with each person, individually. I have made many great friends throughout the years trying to follow in your footsteps – and will forever be grateful to you for that example!
I am thankful for our Directors of Leadership Development – Michelle Gile, Jenner Marcucci & Mike Edge! What I have come to realize is how important the skills you taught us are – and how many people did not have the fortune of working with great trainers like yourselves to gain those skills! I am a better leader today because of the trainings and the coaching you provided!
I am also thankful for the many people I worked with during these years! While there are too many to mention by name, please know how grateful I am for your friendship!
