Will was the Director of Surgical Services for Med4OurWorld from 2011-2023. He organizes and prepares the surgical suite for all types of surgeries and assists the team in all other activities as needed. His primary role is as a surgical technician and assistant to the surgeons and conducting turnover and set-up for all surgical procedures. Other responsibilities include maintaining all surgical equipment, surgical instruments, and educating other team members and/or local health care providers to the full surgical experience including scrubbing into surgery, assisting the surgeon, and patient care.
As a former member of the military he has been deployed in humanitarian and combat missions including Turkey, Kosovo, and Iraq. When presented the opportunity to team up Med4OurWorld on their second mission trip in 2011 he eagerly joined and subsequently became an integral part of the mission organization’s surgical success. His adage is to be prepared for anything and adapt, a vital skill learned in his previous deployments.
Will has always wanted to serve a greater purpose since his military experience. He believes that there is no greater satisfaction then being able to provide and give the training and experience that God has prepared us for to serve others.
