What is your position and role at Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare? I am a Radiologic Technologist II, or Rad Tech.  My daily activities can vary but my primarily responsibility is ensuring patient comfort while performing accurate x-ray exams.  I also work in diagnostic imaging and am one of two technologists that work in bone density scans (DXA).  I am also a member of Gillette’s internal wellness committee – WOW (Wild On Wellness) Committee.

Do you have a favorite Gillette story or memory? It is hard to pick a single memory, but I have one that always gets me through a rough day. A patient with severe clubfeet was going through a long andMeet Us Monday - Bethann Nikolova, Radiologic Technologist often painful process with external fixation devices to correct her condition.  One day after imaging her progress she looked up at me and said “Tank You, I Lubba You!”  She really didn’t speak English and it was too cute for words.  A few months later at her last appointment, I saw her playing tag with another child in the hall.  I knew there was no place else for me.

What do you like best about working at Gillette? Working at Gillette has given me the courage to say that I know I can handle anything life throws my way.

Do you have any children or pets? I have two children, Tyler is 14 years old and and EvaKate is 8.  We have a dog “Charlie” aka Charles Xavier, aka Charles Barkley, aka Charlie the goat.  We also have a fish and my daughter is currently asking what other pets we can have.

If you could travel anywhere, where would you go? I have found I am not a good traveler but I have always wanted to go to Boston and Montana.

What are some of your hobbies outside of work? I mostly try to keep up with my house and kids but I absolutely love having parties. I am currently on hiatus, but am a red belt in Taekwondo and am looking forward to starting my training again and earning my black belt.
