Olen has been my "volunTOLD" mentor for over five years. Olen stays up to date on current research and practice guidelines. He is always willing to teach, via in person or phone, even if its off the clock. He constantly pushes me and others out of our comfort zone so that we continue to grow. I am so proud to be his friend!
