I manage the small business benefit solutions and services, but I think my job is really about building relationships and creating an environment where people feel confident and connected to ES3. I know anyone could say this but I had the opportunity to truly experience this connection some years back, when I donated my kidney to my daughter.

I sent out emails letting our clients know I was taking some time off and why and received back many emails of good wishes. One response in particular was from the President of one of our corporate clients, a gentleman who had received a kidney transplant himself some years before.

During the transplant, I was in a separate hospital from my daughter, which was hard on us both. Through the help of others, we were able to video conference with one another. Later, I found out that one of the companies that helped make this possible was the client mentioned above. What a wonderful connection!
