Watertree Health MVP Spotlight: John Modispacher
April marks John Modispacher’s one-year anniversary with Watertree Health® and his newly achieved status as MVP! John lives and works in western Washington, helping his community afford their medications through our free Prescription Discount Card benefitting Make-A-Wish®.
Prior to joining the Company, John worked in sales for about 13 years, selling insurance through private in-home appointments. Meeting new people and helping them get the necessary health care was a skill that transitioned seamlessly to Watertree Health.
When asking John what made him decide to become a Rep, he replied that it just clicked from day one. Helping people afford their medications AND giving back to Make-A-Wish allows him to make a difference in his community.
One day, John witnessed what happens all too often at the pharmacy, and what drives him to do more. “I was standing behind a woman in line to pick up her prescriptions and she was on the phone with her loved one asking what medications she should leave behind because her bill was $800.”
When John talks to other people about the program, he states proudly that the Reps’ efforts have resulted in over 200 wishes granted in about two years. “My wife volunteers often, but I never thought I’d be working alongside a nonprofit. I love knowing I’m making an impact in these kids’ lives. Whenever I mention Make-A-Wish, people light up. One day I met a man who was a driver for a wish kid’s wish day. He couldn’t stop talking about what an amazing experience it was to witness their life-changing event.”
“John has his focus set on donations for Make-A-Wish – when there’s a contest or other goal to hit, it’s always about the donations for John,” said John McKiernan, John’s Director.
Since John started a year ago, he has grown faster than most. In the fourth quarter of 2016, he had the highest growth of any Rep in the company, which continued through January and earned his way onto the 2017 President’s Club Trip to St. Thomas.
“John is somebody that goes out there and does it. Speaking as his Director, he’s very low maintenance because he’s always working! He’s extremely deserving of this recognition as our MVP,” John McKiernan said.
Thank you John for all you do to make your community a happier and healthier place! Your commitment has helped thousands of people save money and afford the medications they need. And, the wishes that you’ve helped grant have given hope, strength, and joy to kids and their families during extremely difficult times. Keep up the great work, John!
