When I first joined, they made me feel right at home as part of the MCG family. There is not a day that goes by that working at MCG doesn’t bring a smile to my face.”

Haleigh Stinson

“There is a lot of truth behind Mark Twain’s quote “Find a job you enjoy doing, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” I find myself skipping steps to get to our office every morning. I know it will be a sad day when I find myself not skipping steps.”
