9. Do you have a memory at Gillette that you want to share?

I was especially touched watching a 3 year old girl who had always crawled since birth start walking on her feet after surgery.

I was also reminded of the amazing work at Gillette when I went to Tanzania on a mission trip with church and saw  several adults who had never been treated for clubfeet. They had spent their whole life with feet that were wrapped in rags and turned in. They walked with a staff to keep their balance.

10. What do you enjoy most about your job at Gillette?

I love working with the kids. They are so much fun. Also our staff is amazing- very caring and kind!!!!! I love my job!
