Daniel Moreno / Warehouse Manager / Burbank, CA

DANIEL MORENO

WAREHOUSE MANAGER / BURBANK, CA

I was born and raised in Los Angeles County. I’m the oldest of three, with a younger sister and brother. My mom and dad came to the states at a young age, so I am the first person in my family to be born in this country. My hobbies include going to Lakers and Dodgers games, hiking all over LA County, cars and coffee, and detailing cars. My family also has a ranch in Napa that I enjoy vacationing at. In my free time, I just like to unwind. Over the past year, I have really enjoyed spending time with my niece and seeing her grow.

After high school, I went to a community college at LA Trade Tech as a member of the track & field team. After a year, I transferred to UCLA. GO BRUINS! I got the opportunity to be coached and mentored by Mike Powell, world record long jump holder. I studied forensic anthropology along with infant studies and child development.

At Med One, I am the Warehouse Manager for our Burbank branch. Every day is a different day; no day is the same. I enjoy being around a great group of co-workers and the support system Med One has. Last but not least, I find satisfaction in providing medical equipment not just to our customer facilities but playing a part in providing care for people in need, especially in the current pandemic we are all facing.

DANI VAUGHAN

DIGITAL CONTENT COORDINATOR / SANDY, UT

I was born in Boise, ID but moved to Utah when I was young. I grew up just south of Salt Lake and attended school in Utah as well. I currently live in Midvale, UT, and have recently become a little bit of a cat lady with my two cats I have named Axel and Franky. My family is large, but I am closest to my sister and her kids. We are only 18 months apart, so we have a very close relationship. I love doing things with her, my brother-in-law, and my niece and nephews. This past May, we competed together in an event called the Tactical Games. It combines physical fitness and target shooting to complete each event. We have a great time together and love that we can do things together.

In school, I studied communications with an emphasis in advertising. Throughout my schooling, photography has been something that I have always been involved with, and I have been lucky enough to put those skills to use in my career. I love that I can have an impact on the visual representation of Med One in the video and photo content that I create. In addition to the content creation I do for Med One, I also have a personal photography business that I run in my spare time.

Utah is a great place to live, and I love to be outside. In addition to photography, basically anything I can do outside, I will do: hiking, kayaking, paddle boarding, shooting sports, hunting, etc. I’m also a big nerd who occasionally plays video games and loves Batman.

Sophia Walston / Operations Service Specialist / Hayward, CA

SOPHIA WALSTON

OPERATIONS SERVICE SPECIALIST / HAYWARD, CA

I was born in Rohnert Park, which is about an hour north of San Francisco, CA. I lived there the majority of my life, and I hope to be able to move back there one day. I have one older sister, and we are ten years apart. Our mom and stepfather raised us since I was five.

I went to culinary school in Santa Rosa, CA. It was a lot of fun and taught me so much. In my spare time, I love to cook and bake; I especially love baking sweets for the office so everyone at Med One can enjoy them as well.

I met the love of my life when I was 18, and that’s when I moved to Hayward, CA. Eight years later, we finally got married on February 22, 2021! The pandemic caused our wedding to be way different than I’d ever imagined, but it was still the happiest day ever. Even my dog Romeo got to attend in his cute little tux.

I’m the Operations Service Specialist here at Med One in Hayward, CA. I absolutely love my job, but one thing that makes it truly great is the people. Everyone here is family. I can honestly say I’m happy to come to work every day and be around everyone’s positivity and kindness. I also love talking with our accounts and making genuine relationships with each one.
