In this AAOE Member in the Spotlight feature, meet AAOE member and Education Council volunteer Andrew Wade, MBA, Coastal Orthopaedic Assosciates PA.
Tell us why you became a member of AAOE.
I joined AAOE to access, and hopefully add to, the collective knowledge, wisdom, and experience of a nationwide network of professionals who share in my profession.
What is the best advice you've ever been given?
"People lose their 'way,' when they lose their 'why.'" ( via @michaelyhyatt) It's our job as leaders to clearly define the "why."
What quote or song lyric provides inspiration to you?
"It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change." - Darwin
What do you enjoy the most about your career and why?
I love solving complex problems--the messier the better. And let's be honest ... no industry can supply problems quite like the healthcare industry can. ;-)
What do you do when you're not at work?
When not at work, I'm dating my beautiful wife, playing with our kids, reading a book, or exploring some new app or technology tool.
What words of wisdom do you have for new AAOE members?
Find a place to serve and work to "give" at least twice as much as you "get."
