Katrina Lambert, Project Manager for Day Kimball Healthcare’s (DKH) Information Technology (IT) Department has been named employee of the month for February by Day Kimball Healthcare.
Lambert, who has been in the healthcare field for seventeen years, began working for Day Kimball Healthcare in 2010 when it acquired Danielson Medical Associates where she was employed as a medical secretary. She worked as a medical assistant for DKH until 2013 before transferring to the Day Kimball Medical Group as a clinical trainer. In December 2015, Lambert transitioned into her current role as IT Project Manager.
In her role, Lambert works in collaboration with all IT project teams and project stakeholders and is accountable for managing all detailed components of major IT related projects. “My goal every day is to support my team, whether that is coordinating office moves, ordering equipment, or organizing work spaces,” Lambert said. Additional responsibilities include tracking and monitoring all IT project requests and ensuring DKH priorities are met by coordinating resources based on project needs and requirements.
According to Lambert’s supervisor, Patrick Clifford Jr., Information Technology Manager for Day Kimball Healthcare, “I believe that I can speak for the entire IT department in saying that we are all very proud of Katy and this well-deserved award. Katy always goes above and beyond in everything she does, in her professional and personal life. She often goes out of her way to ensure that the user community we serve at Day Kimball is well taken care of and working safely and efficiently. Katy is a very valuable member of my team and the DKH family.”
In response to being named employee of the month Lambert said, “I am humbled that my contributions to DKH are appreciated. I have a very hard time accepting praise and will often avoid situations that it might happen to come up. So this is a really big challenge for me, but I know it’s important to step outside of my comfort zone.”
When asked what she likes most about her job, Lambert said, “I love solving problems, coming up with new ideas, and helping others do their job as easily as possible. I enjoy seeing a plan come together, problems solved, and ideas put into practice.”
Lambert was born in Pasadena, Texas and lived in Montana and North Dakota before moving to Northeast Connecticut at 9 years old. She resides locally with her husband and two children. Lambert is very active in her religious faith and in her spare time enjoys painting, drawing, and dabbling in other artistic activities.PHOTO CAPTION: (l to r): DKH Board of Directors Chairman Joseph Adiletta, DKH President & CEO Anne Diamond, DKH Employee of the Month Katrina Lambert, DKH Information Technology Manager Patrick Clifford, and DKH CFO Paul Beaudoin at Blackmar’s Employee of the Month celebration, held February 26 at Day Kimball Hospital.
