"Working in the Emergency Department, I get to play with kids, treat their broken bones, close their lacerations, relieve a family’s concern or help shepherd them through a difficult health crisis while helping to train future medical providers — all at the same time! In my administrative roles, I also get to work with almost everyone in our organization to help improve our systems so we can provide the best possible care. This is a privilege and a great honor!"
