The people! I love being part of the Washington Regional family and the opportunities I have had to interact with so many of them.

Why did you choose Washington Regional as an employer?
I wanted to work for a hospital that cared about their employees and gave so much back to the community.

Describe your family.
I live in Prairie Grove with my husband Craig, my Italian Greyhound Derry, and my little Dachshund Macy. I have a son, Joey and daughter in law in Missouri who have blessed us with two precious granddaughters, Julie and Brigid.  I have a daughter, Sarah and son in law who live in Lincoln and are about to bless us with a third granddaughter.

What is the most rewarding part of your job? 
The people, no doubt about it. From the wonderful friends I have made to the elderly patients who are so thankful and relieved when you can help them out. My job is so rewarding and satisfying.
