What is your favorite part of your job?

The most favorite part of my day is supporting the team of labortorians, who excel every day in providing the best quality care to the patients we serve. It is about providing the support and resources to several hundred teammates so our mission to improve health, elevate hope and advance healing – FOR ALL is achieved.

 

Who are your “everyday heroes” in the work place?

In no special order, my everyday heroes are the nurses, physicians, laboratorians and many other healthcare colleagues who provide care each and every day.

 

If you were to have one superhero power, what power would it be and why?

My team may tell you that I am a Batman follower. Batman’s superpowers are that he is an exceptional martial artist, combat strategist, has brilliant detective skills and uses advanced technology. Batman always pushes himself to the absolute pinnacle of human achievement. I do not identify with having a superpower, but rely on tact, intellect and science and technology to guide my work.
