She dedicated her career at Midmark to our teammates’ growth. No matter the tenure, it was Sharyl’s mission that you were to leave Midmark better than you came—and she accomplished that mission with every teammate she touched. I am thrilled that she will be able to spend more time with her grandchildren, travel and dedicate more time to her nonprofit work. We wish her the absolute best.”
