I have had the pleasure of working for some of the finest people in our industry , Maria,Joe,Tony, and Suzanne D'Ortenzio. I am who I am today because of the guidance you have given me over the years. As far as all of my past and present coworkers, I love all of you and it has    been an absolute blast working with you.
