Working closely with our EVP (Employee Value Prop) Ambassadors and leaders, we continue to build a calendar of volunteer event opportunities that allow all of our employees to find a work that they are passionate about and enjoy living out their strengths in that area.

I enjoy sports, beach time, and missions work. My family and I are very blessed with special family gatherings and our grandkids keep us busy. We are involved with the work of the church, family, and community in which we live while enjoying the sunny South Florida climate and the activities in the sunshine!
