Senior Administrative Assistant
Center for Nursing Excellence
"When I can do something to lighten someone’s workload, it makes me happy. The projects I work on often start out as a bunch of puzzle pieces that have to fit together. When I am able to fit those pieces together, I feel accomplished and able to contribute to a product that will benefit the department and the organization.
I maintain a calm and friendly demeanor, so my colleagues feel comfortable approaching me when they need assistance. I keep informed of different resources throughout the hospital in order to assist promptly and accurately, reducing their workload. The work I do behind the scenes allows nurses the time and resources they need to prioritize our patients."
