Abilene High School graduate Seth Willis knows Abilene. For Abilene, Seth has been recognized as an Abilene ‘star’, too!
Seth’s role in many of Abilene’s physical fitness programs, local ballet performances and Hendrick Home for Children’s fundraiser, ‘Dancing with the Abilene Stars’, has positioned him on a stage he’s not accustomed to.
“After seven different years of dancing via ‘Dancing with the Abilene Stars’ I’ve had the honor of dancing with five partners who won ‘best female’ and I’m pretty proud of them,” explains Seth. “However, raising the needed funds for Hendrick Home for Children is what I am most proud of and would prefer my name to be associated with.”
Following his graduation from Harding University in Searcy, Arkansas, Seth returned as quickly as he could to Abilene. Seth began his career in the banking industry and expected that was where he would remain.
When asked what he enjoyed most about working for the banks, there was no hesitation in his answer: “I really liked the customer interactions within my role, and like Abilene Bone & Joint, the customers are our foundation for success.”
Parent to three children, Seth and his wife Britt have deep ties to Abilene and are on a mission to strengthen those ties anyway they can. Those ties include church, friends, their respective workplaces, and even the neighborhood of their family’s home.
Since joining Abilene Bone & Joint in 2012, Seth wears many hats, though accounting and human resources is his primary responsibility. Seth believes the doctors are great leaders with a strong business acumen and they (the doctors) trust their staff to do their jobs to the best of their abilities. Seth also strongly believes the Abilene Bone & Joint team has improved overtime and are poised for continued growth.
Seth has been fortunate to have experiences when he’s out in the community to reaffirm his role and being part of the Abilene Bone & Joint team. “When I have one of my branded shirts on – even in the grocery story – it happens frequently for someone to tell me what a great group Abilene Bone & Joint is and their pro-active role in the community. Even eight years later, I’m still pleasantly surprised of the impact we have in the community,” proudly boasts Seth.
