Q: Steve, you are a Co-founder and Vice-President at VaxPro. How did you get started in the company wellness business?
A: VaxPro was started 12 years ago when my partner Jay Plavnick conceived the idea for a mobile flu shot vaccination service for Wisconsin businesses. Over the years we have grown our vaccination service to include TB testing, Biometric Screening and pharmacogenetic testing for medication optimization.
Q: Where are VaxPro customers located?
A: We originally focused on the Milwaukee area, but now reach most regions in Wisconsin including Madison, Green Bay, Waukesha, Sheboygan and Kenosha. It seems every year that we continue to reach out to more cities in Wisconsin and we also now service parts of Chicagoland.
Q: What is your main role at VaxPro?
A: I spend most of my time creating the infrastructure for our teams to succeed at the many clinics we operate each year. I work closely with Alice, our Manager of logistics and Supply Chain to create efficient clinic operating processes used by VaxPro's experienced nurses. I also work with DJ, our IT developer, to manage our secure, internal database that houses clinic and patient information.
Q: What is your favorite part of working at VaxPro?
A: Every day is a great day at VaxPro because the company is currently in a very dynamic growth stage. We have a terrific office staff, an awesome nursing team and really nice customers. New things are happening each day and I enjoy working with Jay, Alice, DJ, Zak and Lauren to create the tools necessary for VaxPro to provide great service for our customers. I am also looking forward to getting our new foundation, VaxPro Genetics Foundation, Inc. (VGFI) up and running in 2018.
Q: Any final thoughts?
A: Yes. Stay Healthy. Remember to get you annual flu shot. And, call VaxPro for all of your wellness needs. We are here to help.
