WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF WORKING AT ALLIANCE?

I enjoy seeing our patients come in with a smile on their face. Also, I’ve had a great experience working at our facility and watching how a treatment plan helps alleviate a patient’s pain.

WHAT IS THE BEST COMPLIMENT YOU HAVE RECEIVED FROM AN ALLIANCE COLLEAGUE?

The best compliment I have received is that I have integrity. I like knowing that my colleagues trust that I will do the right thing along with letting them know when I made a mistake, so it can be fixed as soon as possible.

WHICH ALLIANCE VALUE BEST REFLECTS YOU?

Integrity is what I live by in life, and respect is what I give, even when I have an upset patient. Many of my patients have shown appreciation for this philosophy. I treat everyone how I want to be treated.

WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST JOB?

I was born and raised in England. When I was growing up there, we finished school at 16. I became a hairdressing apprentice and then went on to become a full stylist. I moved around as a military wife, and we retired here in Covington, Ga. I learned I would have to complete my training again to become a hair stylist here. So, in order to decide what I would pursue next instead of styling hair, I put law enforcement in my left hand and the medical field in my right, and my right hand won.

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE THINGS TO DO OUTSIDE THE OFFICE?

When I have the time, I love to work out. I also like to try out new restaurants

in the Atlanta area.

WHAT’S A FUN FACT ABOUT YOURSELF THAT MOST OF YOUR CO-WORKERS DON’T KNOW?

I’m actually a big goof! I love to laugh, have fun, and see others do the same.
