The best compliment I have received is praise for my patience with our patients and taking the time to listen to their problems.
WHICH ALLIANCE VALUE (COMPASSION, RESPECT, INTEGRITY, EXCELLENCE, & SERVICE) BEST REFLECTS YOUR QUALITY OF WORK AND WHY?
There are two values that impact my work day: compassion and integrity. Having compassion for our patients is very important. Being in pain is not fun, and I can relate to that. Also, having integrity for my work is very important to me. I value being honest and keeping my word.
WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST JOB?
I was the neighborhood babysitter, which was such a fun job for me. We had a makeshift fort for the kids and me to watch movies, play cards, and tell ghost stories.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE THINGS TO DO OUTSIDE THE OFFICE?
I love being outside and visiting my favorite park. It has big trees, waterfalls, and long hikes. Being one with nature is such a freeing feeling for me.
WHAT’S A FUN FACT ABOUT YOURSELF THAT MOST OF YOUR CO-WORKERS DON’T KNOW.
My uncle owned an auto shop that catered to large trucks (16 -18 wheelers). I used to help with changing the tires and oil on them. At first, it was a bit scary. However, after I learned the proper techniques, it became easy for me to do.
