Loney is an experienced Research Coordinator and does an excellent job at leading someone from day to day achievements at work to inspiring people to do more and to take pride in that work. A focused, goal driven individual that takes the time to guide and teach anyone who is in need. His knowledge goes beyond the general work place and enjoys sharing what he knows to further the growth of knowledge in others. I am fortunate to work with someone who has such passion for their work. It is an honor to be mentored by Loney. He truly cares about the work, each participant, study and the overall big picture when it comes to research-helping people from a different stand. This job is not for everyone and it can be overwhelming at times and some people may feel defeated as well. With the leadership skills and genuine encouragement that my nominee, Loney Girod, has it is almost impossible to think of anything other than the positive points of the day and job.
