We need to take care of ourselves and each other.

We get to follow families throughout their first 20 years, so I’m confident I know their ‘normal.’ I can look into a patient’s eyes and know when they are not feeling well. I love watching the patients grow into wonderful, young adults, and young couples become amazing parents. And when I give a flu vaccine and a child says, ‘that didn’t hurt as much as I thought it would,’ I know I’ve made a difference.

I am very big on making sure my coworkers have fun and smile at work. We handle a lot of sad and hard situations, and we need to make sure we take care of ourselves and each other.

I feel fortunate to work with such a talented, caring team of professionals, and to be a part of something as life changing as the Craniofacial Center at CHaD.

I try to put myself in the shoes of our patients and provide the responsiveness and sincerity that I would want as a patient. My goal is to be accessible, thorough and above all, kind. I want patients to feel cared for and confident that their questions will be answered and their needs will be met.

I strive to be positive and dependable, persistent but patient. I believe in teamwork and appreciation for each other, remembering that we’re all working hard and doing our best.

In addition to medical care, patients need kindness -someone to help them through what they are dealing with. I have always been impressed with the patient-centered approach to care. I empathize with each patient that I help. Everyone has something going on in his/her life that affects their interactions, and I do my best to remember that. It’s important they feel cared for.

I make sure I stay smiling. There are good days and bad days, but we all have to work together to do our part. I help colleagues whenever and wherever I’m needed, because I never want to let anyone down. I put my all into each day and work as hard as I can.

“I provide care and support to our families by making their visits easier. Helping with the little things in someone’s busy day goes a long way, and I’m not afraid to jump in and help where needed.

I wanted to work in Pediatric Cardiology because I get to see babies with heart disease grow up and thrive. I now travel to Grenada every year to help care for people with both congenital heart disease and rheumatic fever. We take part in clinics, teaching and sharing our experience to further the quality of life in a part of the world with no specialty care. I adore the children and families I have met and worked with over time.”

“I was born at Mary Hitchcock Memorial Hospital, graduated from the former Mary Hitchcock School of Nursing, and here I am 27 years later. I started working in the Faulkner building, and will retire from the Faulkner building when it’s time.

The kids and families I see and the colleagues I work with bring me joy every day. I make a difference in the lives of the patients and their families, helping them heal and empowering them to have confidence in their parenting skills. I make a difference in my colleagues’ lives by staying upbeat and providing support with a ton of laughter.”
