AMF Contributor: What has been your most memorable experience at Angel MedFlight?
David Manzer: I have had many memorable experiences working at Angel MedFlight, but the most perhaps, was the quintuplet story.
I had recently interviewed for the position of Web Designer when I saw the quintuplets story on the news. I thought how rewarding it would be to work for such a great company and be a part of these amazing things happening at Angel MedFlight. At that moment, I sent Barry Keyles, the Chief Creative Officer, another email and crossed my fingers that I would land this opportunity. The next thing I know, a couple days later HR called and offered me the position.
AMF Contributor: What do you like most about working at Angel MedFlight?
David Manzer: What I like most about working at Angel MedFlight are the great ideas that flourish into tangible results. I love the work I do and the service we provide. I also love getting to see awesome planes in the hanger from time to time. There’s a lot to like about working here.
AMF Contributor: Do you have any personal goals to reach while at Angel MedFlight?
David Manzer: My personal goal is to continue to create new and exciting designs while creating an ongoing positive web experience for our end user.
AMF Contributor: Is there a particular story that has impacted you, personally?
David Manzer: The story that impacted me personally was the story about the 5 year old little boy that we transported. Unfortunately, he recently passed away after a battle with cancer.
Angel MedFlight honored him by taking a staff photo wearing yellow shirts and sent it to his family. This was very touching to me and having a 7 year old boy of my own, this story really hits home with me and brings it even closer.
Being a part of something that does so much good for so many people is inspiring. I have had jobs in the past that I really enjoyed (and some not so much), but what I do for this company and what they do for people, makes me more than just like this job, I am proud of my contribution.
