Jacob Linhart – Carondelet Health Network

There are many ways to prepare for the unexpected, and Jacob Linhart has made them part of his job as market director of facilities operations and construction for the Carondelet Health Network. Linhart won’t claim he foresaw the arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic in spring 2020. However, his background in construction, heating, ventilation and air […]

Eric Brigante – Nashoba Valley Medical Center

For Eric Brigante, the adage “without hard work nothing grows but weeds,” sparks memories of his childhood. As early as five years old, Brigante was working full time on his family’s vegetable farm in Vermont, where he spent many a long summer day learning the importance of building honest relationships—ones built on mutual integrity. What’s […]

Ron Harris—Young Living Essential Oils

Legacy is a word often bandied about.

In the case of Young Living Essential Oils founder, D. Gary Young, […]

Tom Pelis – Oswego Health

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

Hillsboro, Wisconsin, a community with a population of 1,400, holds many memories for Aaron Hammer. He grew up in what’s sometimes called the Czech capital of the state, a small, rural area wedged snuggly between rivers and woodland in the beautiful hill country of southwestern Wisconsin. And now, Hammer’s working there, doing his best to […]

Achour Odicho – Verano Holdings

When Achour Odicho took a break from college to intern at an architecture firm, his plans didn’t go as he’d imagined.

From there, Odicho […]

Ray Miranda – Southern California Orthopedic Institute

Ray Miranda remembers hating his sales job so much he couldn’t stop clenching his jaw, then it became too sore to eat a Thanksgiving dinner. But with the encouragement of his mother, he picked up work at Southern California Orthopedic Institute in Van Nuys, California, and became its regional director of facilities operations. Three decades […]
