When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for one Tim to dissolve the economic bands which have connected him with an Active Family and to assume among the powers of Gresham, the separate and equal job to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle him, a decent respect to the opinions of patients requires that he should declare the causes which impel him to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all jobs are not created equal…
Thusly and Therefore and All That
I will miss my friends and coworkers at Active Family Chiropractic. They were a joy to work alongside, everyday single day. I might even say they were like Family; a very Active pranking family.
Drs. Michelle Chard and Michelle Waggoner will always have my love, support, and undying gratitude for creating a wonderful place to work. They go out of their way to create an atmosphere where employees can thrive.
The Michelles invested and fought on my behalf, to help me succeed and in return, they have my loyalty for all time (overlook the fact that this is my public goodbye letter). I wish them the continued success and growth of Active Family Chiropractic.
I will dearly miss the interactions with the patients I had the pleasure of serving during my Office Manager career. I wish all of you the best in your health and life. The ability to get to know and be a part of so many lives was a blessing.
The Problem With The Job
The ability to get to know your account/insurance was admittedly not a blessing. In many respects it was the paperwork that drove me away from this job. Hopefully, most of you never had insurance issues, but if you did, please know that the frustration of understanding and addressing the problem was shared on both our parts.
I will mention that the checklist of things that needed done before I left still has some line items left unchecked. Mindy, the new insurance specialist, will address them for you, but you may have to fill her in on the details. She is highly competent, but it is a big job that takes some transition time to learn all the pieces. Be patient with her as it isn’t her fault.
Ultimately, you may call me a punk for leaving and I will accept that assessment. Yes, I am picturing the people who would have called me that to my face whether or not I left. I also know you are smiling as you read this.
Where Is He Now
In 2016 I graduated with a degree in Database Development and since then have been slowly working towards becoming a web developer (websites run on databases so it fits my degree). I am absolutely passionate about helping small/mid sized businesses create a website and digital marketing strategy to grow their business and am actively working in the web design field.
The Fond Farewell
Goodbye to all my friends, bosses, co workers, the automated phone call that called three times a day claiming to be from Google, the computer in the back that would never stay connected to the internet unless I went and jiggled the cord (no one else knew how to jiggle the cord just right), the patients that I got to chat with for a few minutes every once in awhile, the babies that were so cute, the PM coffee (I mean bank deposit) run, the music that got so many compliments but needed too much attending to, the jokes, the pranks, and the chiropractic treatments that kept me going.
I will miss you all…
