I have appreciated Marci for so many years. Remembering how she boldly stepped in when there was a conflict between a department manager and all my other coworkers in pharmacy’s infancy. There had been a rash of resignations and complaints made, and it was finally time for her to don the cape and come to the rescue. If she had not handled it the way she wisely did, I can honestly attest, I might have been the next with a sealed envelope, seeking employment elsewhere, and I would not be approaching the 28 year mark here myself. Deeply grateful for you, Marci!
