A message from our president.
Since becoming president of REACH Air Medical Services, I find myself very humbled by our staff. Our company offers a very unifying mission, and I admire the work each employee does every day to live that mission. I watch our clinical and aviation teams in action. I hear about their performance from doctors and nurses and patients. It amazes me.
When I joined the company at 23, I found myself working on the line as a paramedic with Dr. McDonald. I knew right away that what I wanted to do was serve the people who live the REACH mission.
Something very important to me is servant leadership, which entails consciously choosing to lead as a way to serve the development of others. I believe this is absolutely necessary in order to find the most direct path to solutions for our staff, customers, and the community as a whole. Servant leadership comes down to practicing some very important and fundamental things: receptive listening; authentic empathy; awareness of self, others and situations; persuasion vs. authority; the ability to conceptualize; foresight; stewardship; a commitment to staff members’ overall growth; a belief in staff members’ intrinsic value beyond their contribution as employees; and a commitment to building community.
It is with great pleasure and gratitude that I strive to serve each member of the REACH Air Medical Services team.
