What does being a hero mean to you?
– To me, a hero is measured by how well you are able to help people. That might mean to just be there for someone, or if you guide and educate someone into a better life.
Explain what you love about your job.
– I love building relationships with the women who come in for our prenatal care. Having the opportunity to see the birthing process from start to finish is what it’s all about. The bond that is formed before the baby arrives also continues after birth. Helping women have a healthy pregnancy is why I do what I do.
How do you handle COVID-19?
– I’m more cautious about who I allow around me and my family. Working in the medical industry, I see the affects, so I stress to my people the importance of wearing a mask, using hand sanitizer, and practicing good hygiene. Other than that, I try not to stress too much about it because it’s not something that I can personally change; I do what I can to protect myself and others.
Who do you consider a Frontline Hero?
– Many people I work with, but I think Yeni Rodriguez PA-C, and Dawn Hacker are real heroes. Both have immense knowledge of the clinic, and each one inspires me with the care that they provide our patients.
