What is your favorite part about working at CHG? The people I work with are amazing; everyone is so nice. It is such a great atmosphere here at RN Network.
If someone asked you what you do, how would you answer them? I would say I am a paper chaser. My job is to make sure the nurses are qualified to work at the hospitals, and one way we do this is by collecting all their documents, such as licenses, certifications, health documents and testing.
Why did you choose to work at CHG? Bill Heller. I worked with him at another company for about six years, and he’s the coolest manager I have ever had (except for Latisha Turner). So when he called me and said there was an opening, there was no way I was going to pass it up.
What is your favorite event that you have participated in at CHG and why? We did a team building event where the whole company broke up into small teams and had a cook-off, Top Chef style. It was great because everyone was super competitive, and it was fun to taste everyone’s creations.
What is your favorite core value at CHG? Putting People First — I have never seen that as a company’s core value, and when I saw that, I thought, Wow, that is really nice. The thing is they really do put people first here.
If you could choose your last meal, what would it be? My mother’s pasta.
What five things would you take to a deserted island? My husband, my kids, food supply, drink supply and lots of sunblock!
