Kyla Audio: “Thank you, Lance, for joining us. Let’s talk a little bit about – you were in the military, so what was that transition from being in the military to now the civilian world? What’s that been like for you?”

Lance Audio: “It’s been kind of a tough transition. Originally I did a deploy – I was Army, I was with the National Guard here in Arizona and I did a deployment in Afghanistan as infantry. And prior to me being infantry, I was a flight medic on the border mission. And so I kind of was multi-purpose over in Afghanistan. And when I got back, it was real hard to transition into the civilian aspect and try to find a good job. I was married with three kids and trying to find somewhere where I can support. And through a friend that I knew through the fire academy, I was able to get this job with Banner here at Banner Estrella. And ever since then, they have been phenomenal. They have treated me outstanding, they’ve always been flexible between my work schedule and school or, if I had a second job, they were always flexible.”

Lance Audio: “It’s meant a lot to me the way that this organization has treated me and treated my family has just been phenomenal—very supportive. Whenever there was a family tragedy going on, they bent over backwards to accommodate my situation and my family’s situation. And it’s nice to work for an organization like this.”

Lance Audio: “Banner is an amazing organization. They really treat their employees phenomenal with dignity and respect. No matter if you are a housekeeper or if you are a doctor, everyone treats you the same way. There’s that same respect level. And be prepared to work because a lot of these facilities, they’re real busy and it’s just nice to have a good fast-paced environment and Banner is just amazing.”
