Med One to One Winter/Spring TWENTY NINETEEN ISSUE 59

Employee Spotlights

Julie Harrison Territory Sales Manager Julie Harrison My first introduction to Med One was back in the day when I lived in San Diego, California. I had lived there for 12 years and engaged in my first medical position with Alaris Medical Systems (now BD). Ibby Smith Stofer took a chance on me and I’m grateful for her launching me onto such a great career path. I often called on Med One with quotes for my customers, and Troy Tait and Larry Stevens would work with me to close the deals.

My 3 children were born in San Diego – Sydney (17), Jenna (15) and Joey (13). I also have a stepdaughter, Brittany (29). In 2008, we packed up the family and returned to my roots in Evanston, Illinois. This is where I was born and raised, and my immediate family currently lives there. My parents and two sisters live nearby, while my brother lives in New York. Family is very important to me. After our move, I continued working in the medical field in the Midwest.

I was happy to return to Evanston so that my kids could experience the same upbringing that I had – they are going through the same Catholic K-8 school I attended, and my girls are at the same high school I attended. They enjoy the 5 beaches I lounged at during the summers, and they cheer for the Northwestern Wildcats, while vowing not to go to school there because it’s too close to home. That’s alright with me, I’m pushing them to go to Marquette University where I attended 4 years and received my bachelor’s degree in business administration.

In my free time I enjoy running, biking, and paddling on Lake Michigan and in the summer. Each year the kids and I venture out for annual camping trips… yes, in tents! I’m a perpetual spectator of sports, I watch my kids play softball, volleyball, soccer, and basketball.

I was hired in the fall of last year to join the Med One leasing team, and I am thrilled to be part of such a wonderful and experienced group. My territory covers a good portion of the Midwest and I am looking forward to making a difference for this region and Med One. My goal is to take the different relationships I currently have and convert them into powerful partnerships for Med One. I am appreciative of the “family” culture that Med One offers.

Larae Roldan Delivery Driver Larae Roldan I was born in the Philippines and migrated to the United States when I was eleven years old. I have lived in San Francisco, California ever since. My family is very important to me. They are my biggest supporters, my motivation and my heartbeat. I’m blessed to have them in my life. My hobbies include traveling and going on road trips. I love seeing new places and learning about others. It helps me appreciate the little things about life.

In my spare time I enjoy going out to eat with my friends and spending time walking my dog. I love to sit at the beach and listen to the sounds of the waves. I find it very relaxing.

I currently work at Med One as a delivery driver. My favorite part of my job is the people I get to work with each day. They make the environment peaceful and comfortable. Med One has become a second home and a sanctuary for me.

Randy Smith Director Of I.T. Randy Smith I was born in Ogden, Utah but grew up in Kaysville, Utah. I come from a family where I am one of seven children. My wife, Sena and I, have four of our own children. We have three sons and one daughter. The youngest son and our daughter are twins. I really enjoy the time I get to spend with my children and our seven grandchildren.

I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Information Systems from Brigham Young University and an MBA from the University of Utah. I have also completed the Air Command and Staff College program while working as a civilian at Hill Air Force Base.

Together my wife and I enjoy traveling both locally, nationally, and internationally. Since all four of our children live far away, we get to see a lot of the country as we visit them. We have been able to travel to Chile, Peru, Brazil, Mexico, Canada (various parts), some Caribbean islands, and Australia. We have also visited several US locations including Alaska, New York, Texas, Ohio, Kentucky, and California. I especially enjoy visiting ancient ruins, and Machu Picchu is on my bucket list.

I don’t have much spare time, but if I do you can find me working in my yard or remodeling parts of our home. I enjoy most sports and activities. Although I have played many different sports in the past, volleyball is a favorite, and golf has been a favorite more recently. I’m not too good, but I enjoy being out and relaxing while I play.

Here at Med One I am the Director of Information Technology. The best part about my job at Med One is the people I work with. The people at Med One are great! Secondly, I love the variety of experiences and challenges my job brings. No two days are alike, and some challenges can be very difficult but are rewarding when completed.
