The comings and goings of staff are a part of every dynamic organization; therefore, getting to know our coworkers better as people can be challenging. We have to be mindful that our company culture thrives on our exceptional people and their outstanding technical skills. As such, we are finding that our periodic interviews with associates allow us to acknowledge and celebrate the beautiful life stories, extraordinary professional accomplishments, and even the little quirks that make us uniquely beautiful human beings.
We hope you find each Edafio associate story as inspiring as we do in gathering and sharing them.

Everyone at Edafio has a story about why they joined the team. What’s yours?
While employed at MedEvolve, I wasn’t actively seeking new employment opportunities. However, Lainie, who was working for JPMS at the time, approached me about a potential position at Edafio. Admittedly, I was unfamiliar with the company, but I submitted my resume nonetheless. After Lainie shared it with Gene Scott and I underwent interviews with Gene and Kendall, I knew that Edafio was where I wanted to build my career.
