What sparked your interest in healthcare? At 16 years-old, I took a part time position in the kitchen at Day Kimball, delivering meal trays to patients. This experience gave me some insight into the healthcare field.

What roles have you had at DKH? I started in the kitchen. I worked in the business office. Now I am a certified cardiographic technician in the cardiology department.

What do you like most about your job? I love helping people with their healthcare services and working with a variety of colleagues.

What do you like most about working at DKH? What have you gained? I enjoy the small community environment. The staff at DKH strive to make a difference in patient and family lives instead of just going to work to earn a paycheck. I have gained experience, ongoing education, and comradery with many good people.

What is your proudest moment at DKH? I always feel good when a patient “needs a hug” and when they thank me at the end of their experience in the stress lab.

What is your fondest memory of your time at DKH so far? I have many fond memories. Mostly helping others and listening to patients’ stories. I have learned a lot from meeting different people from all walks of life.

With this being DKH’s 125th anniversary, what do you think makes DKH so special? The employees who are dedicated to serving the community with a caring and positive attitude.

What do you like to do outside of work? I love family vacations. I like spending time at the beach, camping, skiing, and hiking. Being active is very important to me. I am lucky to have the family I have, and my grandkids are a blast.
