What is your position and role at Gillette Children's Specialty Healthcare? I am an audiologist and provide hearing evaluations and necessary follow-up for Gillette’s patients of all ages! My job is to make sure those children and adults can hear everything they need to in order to communicate and live life to its fullest.
Do you have a favorite Gillette story or memory? Recently, a young sibling of a patient staying at Gillette decided to stop by my office window every time he and his parents took a walk down the hallway. Since they walked down the hallway a couple of times a day for several weeks we became fast friends! He would put his face right up to the window, and tap the glass. I made a habit of coming up to my side of the window and making funny faces for him. We both had a good laugh!
What do you like best about working at Gillette? I love being at Gillette because I get to spend time with awesome kids and families that remind me to be hopeful and optimistic every day. My patients and coworkers inspire me to work hard and always do my best.
Do you have any children or pets? My husband and I have two young boys - Bennett and Felix. They sure keep us busy these days! We also have two dogs – Sugar, the French Bulldog and Pico, the Chihuahua.
What are your hobbies outside of work? Outside of work, I spend time enjoying all of the great activities near our home in Como Park. My family loves walking and biking around the lake, going to the zoo and swimming in the neighborhood pool. I’m also a big music fan – my kids and I have dance parties in our living room!
What is one fun fact about you? Every year, as soon as the snow melts, I switch over from driving my car to commuting to work on my yellow scooter! Don’t be surprised if you see me headed in to or out of the audiology office with a black motorcycle helmet on.
