Child Advocacy and Protection Program
What is your fondest memory from your 25 years working at Dartmouth-Hitchcock?
So many children's smiles!
What inspires you?
Now that I am per diem, I have had more time to reflect and realize more deeply that I am grateful beyond measure for all my many colleagues, from many disciplines, inside D-H and from so many communities. You have made it possible for me to come to work each day, with our combined strength and resolve to support children and families in often the most difficult of situations.
Together we have always worked to do better than the day before. From me and on behalf of those hundreds of children and families, thank you!.
What do you like best about your department?
One of my favorite parts of the Pediatrics Department is working with the residency program. It has been wonderful to interact with each resident over the years and to watch them grow from earnest and smart young doctors to confident pediatricians. Likewise, all the learners—both young and seasoned—with whom I have had the privilege to interact. CHaD's slogan of "All teach, all learn" is a gift for all.
How has COVID-19 affected your work?
I "retired" early in the pandemic, and am now per diem. My one regret is that I did not have a real opportunity to say good-bye and many, many thanks to all my colleagues. I think of you often and all the good work you are doing.
