What's the best thing about working at Seattle Children's?

Working with the kids and their families!

What do you like most about the work you do in the Heart Center?

Doing echocardiograms — they are fun to do and I like meeting and spending time with the families.

The people I work with are a great bunch! They are very skilled doctors.

I also love the fact that Children's is a teaching institution — people around me are always learning.

What made you want to come to Children's?

I was ready to leave my previous job. Who would have known that I'd be here for 11 years? I still love it!
