Volunteer Spotlight: Eric Waller

TRIMEDX Foundation volunteer Eric Waller, Medxcel Area Vice President, went to Kenya Relief in 2017 on the first TRIMEDX Foundation facilities trip.

Q: Why did you decide to volunteer with TRIMEDX Foundation?

A: I have always been involved serving as a volunteer.  I have experience in volunteering with search and rescue as a firefighter, and at church. Josh James had reservations about going on an international trip after his service in the military. I decided to go in support of Josh and his willingness to serve. We had the mindset that this is a brotherhood, “If you go, I’ll go!”

Q: Who inspires you?

Matt Keahey inspires him in my professional life. I admire how Matt values his associates, and how he recognizes their hard work and dedication.  He always sees the best in them.

Q: What is something about you (a fun fact) that not many people know?

A: I was attacked by African Red fire ants while serving Kenya Relief. The attack was so bad that I had to remove my clothes to get them off. The group working near me didn’t know what was happening, just that I was no longer wearing bib overalls!

Q: If you had to eat one meal every day for the rest of your life, what would you choose?

A: Pizza, pizza any kind, anyway.
