United in our Vision Award Winner: Marcia Shandor

At Sunvera Group, our goal is to enrich lives by empowering doctors and teams to advance in the evolving landscape of eye care. The values we display in our daily work are what allow us to be successful in achieving this mission.

Each quarter, we select one stand-out team member throughout the Sunvera network to receive the United in Our Vision Award.

Recipients of the award are those who consistently demonstrate Sunvera’s core values: Put People First, Together we Succeed, and Pursuit of Excellence. This quarter, team members across the organization were asked to nominate a colleague and select one of the three values that best align with the nominee’s strengths and behaviors.

Out of 500+ team members throughout Sunvera, there were 18 nominations, who were then scored by our panel of judges to bring us to our Top 5. We are thrilled to honor Marica Shandor, at Michigan Oculofacial Specialists for her commitment to Together we Succeed!
