We go a step further to consider such things as workplace attitude, ability to complete tasks in a timely manner, ability to practice teamwork and contributions to company growth. These team members earn their moment in the spotlight and we are grateful for their service.

She is constantly looking for ways to succeed, thinks outside of the box and is highly solution oriented. Dr. Washington invests in the development and future of her fellow team members.

When something doesn’t go as planned for a fellow team member or one of her centers, Dr. Washington takes the results personally. I admire her extreme ownership of her duties and the duties of those around her. Dr. Washington is true team player, and her approach inspires me.  She is deserving of the Leadership Spotlight for numerous reasons, but most of all her passion for serving others. Thank you, Felecia, for all you do to make our Team better,” said Leslie Campbell, Executive Vice President & Chief Operating Officer.
