“I enjoy the challenges my work provides. I have a unique privilege that allows me to change workflows and processes with the end goal being better outcomes for patients and staff. It amazes me how a simple gesture like a smile can completely change the dynamic of the patient experience. When things run smoothly, I feel I made a difference. I believe that to be a respected effective leader, you need to possess intimate knowledge of the work your team does. I would never ask anyone to do something I would not do myself. I work right alongside my team, setting an example and creating a culture of teamwork, which is vital to a respectful work environment.”
