Watertree Health MVP Spotlight: John Schweininger
John Schweininger, husband to Anne and father to Frank and Robert, lives in San Jose, California. Since John first joined Watertree Health® 3.5 years ago, he has never given less than 100%. You may know that he is one of the top reps, or a 2014 and 2015 President’s Club member, but what you probably don’t know is how well he takes advantage of the tools and resources provided to him by Watertree Health. Impressively, in 47 months he has only missed about 5 Rep calls due to travel. Not many people, if any, can claim this level of commitment. Perhaps no surprise—this September, John is our honorary MVP!
Prior to joining Watertree Health, John worked in quality control at a printing company for 35 years. After he retired, a friend and former colleague named Susan Malicki (who is also a WH Rep) referred him to our company. This was the start of his “second career”.
“Needless to say, it worked out,” said John.
“I joined on March 4, 2013. Most of my life, I was more of a taker than a giver. I always felt more comfortable when I gave, but I didn’t know how to pursue it. Now, I am—I’m helping people.”
“The first nonprofit program I worked on was the one benefitting the Prescott Firefighters. The Yarnell Hill Fire took the lives of 19 of these firefighters on June 30, 2013, and in a very short time we were able to raise $18,000. This initiative really hit home for me because a close friend of mine is a Fire Captain.”
“Now I work on the Make-A-Wish® program, and it’s amazing to me how many people are touched by the organization. For example, one pharmacy tech had his wish granted to go to Disney World® when he was 18. At 20, his cancer had cleared, and he started working as a pharmacy tech at 21.”
As mentioned, John is all-in with our mission and purpose at Watertree Health. In fact, he’s so committed that he usually chooses to work on holidays. One Thanksgiving, he witnessed a woman crying in line at the pharmacy. When he asked the tech what had happened, he said she had saved $100 on her prescription using our card. She was shocked she could afford the medicine and, because she saved money, was then able to buy food for Thanksgiving.
“Another time at Christmas, there was a single mother with her child. She saved $80 with our card and was thrilled to be able to use this money to get her son a Christmas present,” John shared.
For John, one of the most important aspects of Watertree Health is the people.
“I adore the President’s Club members – I’ve met and talked with them all. There is so much great information being shared amongst us, and stories filled with compassion, it inspires me to help even more people. It’s been an unbelievable ride.”
John’s manager says, “John knows how to read people and never misses a beat when it comes to the details. He’s a great listener and can make anyone smile. He’s the backbone of the team and his commitment is unwavering. I feel extremely lucky to have him on the West Coast.”
John’s wife Anne helps him with his business. “She creates my schedule, maps out routes, and does some of the paperwork. We work well as a team,” said John.
Not only is he a dedicated Representative, compassionate person and leader in our company, he is also a stand up guy who treats people the right way. Thank you John for all of your hard work. We are so lucky to have you on our team! Congrats MVP!
