Q. What drew you to Gillette?

A. I was going to school for Nursing. I completed the CNA course and received my certificate. At the time I was working as a supervisor at an interpreting agency. I would receive interpretation requests from Gillette. I researched Gillette and had heard great things. I checked for CNA posting and applied for the CNA position in the Post-Surgical Unit.

Q. Do you have a favorite story/memory from Gillette?

A. The two most memorable events are when I attended a QMED conference in San Francisco back in July 2012. This was the first time I have ever flown anywhere, which became the   best experience ever. Another memorable event was when Gillette went live with ‘GEM’. I recently took a new position/role within the department. I remembered sitting at my desk focusing and working to complete a training manual for QES scheduling, and preparing training sessions for all QES end users before go-live.

Q. What do you enjoy most about your job at Gillette?

A. I enjoy being able to have the opportunity to be a part of educating, training, and being a role model for new hires and current employees.
