what's your most positive story about driving someone?

At my father’s transportation company (long time ago), I was a driver. During the Rodney King Riots, most of the transportation companies pulled their vans out of the riot zone, leaving their patients stranded. We went in, evacuated not only our own patients, but all the other patients as well. Two vans took gun shots, one got stolen, but no one was hurt. It was exhilarating. We felt like heroes.

Tell us about a single incident that made you passionate about providing a superior customer experience.

When I worked for my father’s transportation company, I was a driver sitting in a lounge waiting for my patient to come out. Suddenly people started yelling “code blue!” People were scrambling about, passing through double doors into the dialysis unit. There, on the floor was my patient, going into cardiac arrest, dying. I prayed hard, asked Jesus for mercy, send him angels. A doctor performed CPR, got him going again. The patient came to, looked past all the people hovering over him. His gaze turned down the hallway, past the open doors and locked eyes with me. He smiled. I got the chills, goosebumps on my arms. I realized there was more to my job than just driving. Every act is an offering of compassion, a duty to serve and protect our patients.

Tell us about a single incident that made you passionate about providing a superior customer experience.

Not a single experience more like a natural instinct to make people happy and give them what they want. Say yes...instead of no. I like fixing things....providing solutions. My dad, the founder of the company, liked solving problems for his customers. The business grew tremendously because he didn't say no. Superior customer service is about problem solving, giving your client choices that meet their expectations and following through with a solution. If you can do this consistently, you will have happy customers!

What is your area of greatest expertise? How does that make Secure Transportation a better company?

Risk control. Ensure all our employees have passed our rigorous background checks and training process. Vehicles must meet ADA compliance and safety standards. Ensure we are vetted with the proper regulatory agencies. Work with safety and compliance to reduce vehicle accident and injuries.

Tell us about a single incident that made you passionate about providing a superior customer experience.

I had a kudos call where the customer became so overwhelmed with thanks regarding non-emergency transportation that she became very emotional.

What's your most positive story about driving someone?

I had a passenger that upon loading notified me that he was a terrible passenger and apologized up front in case he got nasty. After falling asleep only 10 minutes into the 1 1/2 hour trip, we arrived to his shock without incident. Upon exiting the car he indicated no one had ever made him feel safe enough to sleep in a vehicle and that for me to do so with 2 foot of snow on the ground was amazing.

Can you tell us about a single incident have you had that made you passionate about providing a superior customer experience?

I went on a ride along with a driver once about a year after I started at Secure. We picked up a veteran and he carried around two black and white pictures with him. He described them and their significance in so much detail I almost remember them being in color; especially one where he was standing next to another young man. It was the last picture he took being able to stand. He spoke of how much he relied on Secure. He said he had no family left and the drivers brought light into an otherwise dark world. At that moment, I knew the level of service Secure provided was elevated above all others.

What does "white glove" mean to you?

Excellence. Everything is perfect from the beginning to the end. Anticipating a client's needs, educating them on what would best serve them and watching all of the pieces falling into place.

What is your area of greatest expertise? How does that make Secure Transportation a better company?

I am the Chief Financial Officer of the company but the most important skill I posses is emotional intelligence to “do-the-right-thing” for all members of the team, customers, suppliers and stakeholders and treating every single person with respect and dignity. It is amazing when you create a win-win situation between any two parties how the partnership works better and allows for more honest dialogue and problem solving between the parties.

Helping our team by providing the tools for team members to do their jobs, removing obstacles, providing affirmation, and allowing the team to focus on the customer experience.

Tell us about a single incident that made you passionate about providing a superior customer experience.

A customers business had gotten into a cash crunch as his business grew quickly and his customers were slow to pay him. We had told him that we would not provide any more transportation services until he cleaned up his past due balances. We started talking and developing a relationship. We meet for breakfast and I helped him sort through a bunch of cash flow issues, and prioritize his business strategy to maximize his profits. He wanted to learn more about being a better business operator. I connected him into a Vistage group so that he could learn business and seek advice from more experienced operators. I sent referrals of business his direction. By providing help in solving his problems it helped us solve our problem.
