We love that our product promotes healthy vision for those with AMD, dry eye, and other vision related issues. One of the best parts of our job is getting to know our customers and their stories. We have the unique opportunity to form relationships with our doctors and their patients. Now we wanted to give you the opportunity to get to know us in our new series: “Meet Our Team”.
First in our series is our Chief Operations Officer, Clint Worley.
What was your experience with eye health before starting with Focus Vitamins?
None what so ever. I come from a global operations background, that has allowed me to leverage that knowledge in the eye health industry. The best news is that I am surrounded by employees and partners that are some of the most hardworking and respected individuals in the retina community, and that helps a lot. We all learn from each other and complement each other’s skillsets nicely.
What was your first job?
My first job was when I was 16. I worked at a local golf course, driving the range picker and cleaning golf carts during the afternoon hours. The best part of the job was the benefit of free golf whenever I wasn’t working or at school.
What city/state do you call home?
Corning, NY is where I call home. Technically, it’s Big Flats, NY, but nobody has ever heard of that. Currently, my family and I reside in Gainesville, VA.
Do you prefer your vacation to be at the beach, in the mountains, or in a city?
My dream vacation would probably be in the mountains. Being off the grid is something that really helps me relax and unwind.
What is your favorite quote?
I have two: “The true test of a man’s character is what he does when no one is watching” and “It’s not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters”. Both speak to me in terms of really understanding what is important and what is not.
What is your ideal Saturday?
My ideal Saturday would definitely happen in the fall, so I can watch my Virginia Tech Hokies play some football. After that, some play time with the family so I can be a kid again, followed up with a home cooked meal and s’mores by the fire pit.
What person, alive or deceased, would you most want to have dinner with?
Phil Mickelson, without a doubt. It’s hard to come by a sports icon that has represented the game and his career with the amount of class and respect that he has. He has done everything the right way, and I would love to hear how he has accomplished that.
