The sun is our primary source of Vitamin D, which helps our bodies absorb calcium. It does not take much sun exposure, however, for most of us to receive the amount of vitamin D our bodies need. Repeated, unprotected exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays can be dangerous and even cause skin cancer. Most children receive a lifetime of sun exposure before they turn 18, so it is very important to exercise proper sun safety at all times.

How did you come to work with Mosaic? 
I first applied as the Business Manager because I needed a change in work environment. Recently I was promoted to Executive Director. I’ve been here 15 years and it still is the best job I’ve  ever had!

What is your favorite part about your job?
Working with our people in service, of course. Where else can you receive hugs, authentic smiles and feel sincere love on a daily basis?

What comes to mind when you think of a cheerleader? Usually a young, energetic high school or college student experienced in dance and gymnastics. Those qualities do not describe Sue Buchanan, however, yet she is the loudest, most enthusiastic cheerleader on the team.

Sue’s dream of cheerleading became a reality when Mosaic employees noticed Sue cheering her peers on at Special Olympics events. It was evident that Sue’s positive, energetic and enthusiastic nature would make her a great cheerleader.

Mosaic’s partner in Tanzania, Building a Caring Community (BCC), has been amazed and blessed by the volunteers who have come from all points on the globe, including a small town in Iceland. Sigridur Ingibjorg Stefansdottir, or Sigga for short, found BCC shortly after graduation when she decided to search for volunteer opportunities using her occupational therapy skills. Throughout her experience, she has learned a great deal about BCC, herself, and working with children who have disabilities.
