Watertree Health MVP Spotlight: Candace Sleight
Candace Sleight, who goes by Candy, is originally from New York, but moved to Georgia for a fresh new start a couple years ago. When she started with Watertree Health®, she quickly became the fastest-growing Rep, climbing to one of the top positions in the company. After only 4 months, she became a President’s Club member and soon after became a wish granter for Make-A-Wish®. We are proud to announce Candy as our very sweet MVP this May.
Needless to say, she is an all-star who keeps on giving and inspiring those around her. From day 1, she has given 110% to our two-fold mission: help people afford their medications and help grant more wishes for children with life-threatening illnesses.
After working years in the mortgage and insurance industry, her reaction to Watertree Heath was, “This has a purpose? Are you serious?” It was an immediate match. Now she calls herself “Difference-Maker and Wish Granter” rather than “Insurance Agent”.
After 2 weeks, Candy was full-time. She told herself, “I’m going to make it happen. I’m going to make it work no matter what.” Her attitude and determination in combination with Trina, her Director’s support made a recipe for success.
“I really feel blessed. There really are no mistakes in life,” Candy said.
Trina shared, “I always get emotional when I talk about Candy; she’s just amazing. When she came on board, it had been a long time since I brought on a superstar. Our team was a little behind on their goals, and Candy was more than what we needed; she was what I needed. It was just a perfect match. We instantly became really great friends.”
Candy replied, “You kept up the support – the communication was always there. That’s another reason I like to help other Reps – it’s so important they know they are supported. Day to day, we’re out there alone, but we’re really not alone because we’re all helping each other, working towards the same mission.”
“I call her my spring, because she launched us into a new chapter. She’s like a garden; she just keeps growing,” Trina said with a smile.
Now, Candy’s expanded her a new chapter as a wish granter for Make-A-Wish. “I was nervous about it because I tend to be emotional, but you realize what you’re doing is making such a positive impact on the kids, their family and the community around them, it just blows you away.”
Her experience has inspired other Reps, pharmacists and technicians to consider becoming wish granters as well. So far, two have made the commitment and many more are considering. The Make-A-Wish Georgia chapter created a special flyer for her to hand out since so many people were asking about it.
“Make-A-Wish needs people. The volunteers really help make it happen.”
Candy recently helped grant her 2nd wish for a 16-year-old girl with cancer whose wish is to go to Disneyland. The wish has been approved and Candy is currently planning to make the wish reveal party as special as can be.
Thank you Candy for continuing to smile, laugh, and lend an open ear to your fellow community-based Reps. You are truly an inspiration to all of us, and a well-deserving MVP!
