Edie Domian, operations director for the Live Well/Work Well program, arrived at D-H in January 2013, with an MBA, a Masters in Healthcare Management and 20 years under her belt – including nine years of active duty with tours in Afghanistan building field hospitals with coalition forces, “putting together a hospital while missiles were flying overhead.” Born in Poland to anti-Communist freedom fighters, Haggard arrived in the U.S in 1983 and six years later was an army reservist after high school. Now an Air Force Reserve major, she says her service “taught me patience, defined my critical thinking skills, not to over react and to work calmly under pressure. The skills that we were brought up with and taught in the military allow us to function in a variety of environments. That in itself prepares us to assume roles of responsibility.”
