Marlene Chicoine, LNA
Pediatric Intensive Care Unit
What is your fondest memory from your 25 years working at Dartmouth-Hitchcock?
One that comes to mind is seeing the Extreme Makeover crew come to visit and seeing how excited the kids at CHaD [Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock] were to meet them, to participate in the one-mile fundraiser with them and be on the show. It was a fun time for everyone!
What about your job/work inspires you?
Helping kids and their families through difficult times is always inspiring. I usually leave my shift feeling mighty grateful that I have, in some way, made a difference. It's a cool feeling.
What do you like best about working for your department?
I have watched CHaD grow and change since its start back in 1991. It's been interesting to watch it evolve and I look forward to seeing what the new changes this year will bring.
