"Most people receiving radiation therapy treatments come in for quick treatments Mondays through Fridays, and this schedule affords us the opportunity to develop strong relationships with our patients," she says. "I'm fortunate to work with a great group of people that all have the same goal - to offer information and support in a comforting and cheerful manner. It can sometimes even be a lot of fun."
"I enjoy the work that I do because I can see the immediate effect that my enthusiasm has when I am helping patients sort through their schedules, solve their problems or find what they need," she explains. "When a patient is visiting us they often have a lot of things on his or her mind and going out of my way to help make some of the smaller things easier is very gratifying for me. A hospital can be thought of as a cold and sterile environment, but the human interactions that we experience here are anything but."
In her free time she enjoys hanging out with friends and family, shopping for bargains, reading, catching up on favorite shows recorded on the DVR and doing laundry (she claims to be a bit of a neat freak and says that doing laundry is relaxing). She's a die-hard Carolina Basketball fan and is looking forward to another fun season where a new team rebuilds!
