Richie Parker has proved over and over that he is a self-sufficient hard worker. Parker is just one of the guys, except he operates everything, down to the mouse and keyboard with his feet. What a truly amazing and inspiring man.
“My role is very small in the grand scheme of things,” Parker said. “But everybody has to do their job. If everybody does their job, we’ll be successful. That’s how I look at it. That’s how I approach my job every day – just do my part.”
And while he enjoys coming to work at a job where he learns something new every day, he says his journey isn’t complete.
“I’m definitely not where I want to be in life,” Parker said. “I want to continue to do more, drive for more. I don’t think anybody wants to sit around and pat me on the back too much. I’m not there yet”
