Aaron Hammer – Gundersen St. Joseph’s Hospital & Clinics

Hillsboro, Wisconsin, a community with a population of 1,400, holds many memories for Aaron Hammer.

And now, Hammer’s working there, doing his best to […]

Brian Horton – Leaf Communications

In 2009, while working as a senior project manager for a Pennsylvania-based engineering firm, Brian Horton remembers flying over Maine in a helicopter, in awe of the vast wilderness while seeing nothing but trees for miles.
