Ep 5 – Just Get Over Yourself

By October 24, 2019 March 25th, 2020 No Comments

We get up close and personal with Karey Witty, COO of Envision Healthcare, to learn how he so artfully finds the time to give to the causes he believes in without compromising his commitments to his job and his family (Karey serves on the boards of directors for JDRF, American Heart Association and Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt). We also learn the name of Karey’s college band and why “Just Get Over Yourself” might be an apt title for his memoir. 

In this episode you’ll also learn:
