Why do you like your job?

The variety! I am excited about each and every project I am working on and love getting to collaborate with clinicians, leaders and our front line healthcare workers. It is amazing to be surrounded by such a dedicated group of passionate professionals.

Professional Words of Wisdom

  • Find enjoyment in everything you do, EVERYTHING. There will be aspects of your job that you do not enjoy or didn’t expect to do. This exists in every job! So find a way to make these tasks your own, and have fun with it! Not only will this make you happier, it will make those around you happier and more productive as well.
