What is your job title/your role at Scottish Rite for Children?  
I am in the inpatient care coordinator. 

What do you do on a daily basis or what sort of duties do you have at work?  
I ensure the needs of the patient and family are met during their inpatient stay and at discharge. I meet with patient families upon admission to discuss their plan of care and expected discharge needs. I'm one part of an extraordinary team that helps our families have a great experience while staying with us as an inpatient and that they are set up for success when they are ready to go home.

I love seeing how the kiddos progress with the treatments they receive here. I also think it takes a wonderful group of people to keep Scottish Rite special, so I think my co-workers are invaluable.

I would love to be a pilot and travel the world. 
Where is the most interesting place you’ve been?
My favorite place to vacation is any place that has sunshine and a beach.
