What is your position and role at Gillette? I am a registered respiratory therapist and am proud to say I have been with Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare for 26 years. My daily activities can change each day, but they mostly consist of monitoring patients on ventilators, teaching families and patients about respiratory needs and consulting with nurses, social workers and doctors about a patient’s needs.
Do you have a favorite Gillette story or memory? Some of my favorite memories are from years ago when I used to accompany our nurses and patients to events like Taste of Minnesota, State Fair or Twin’s games. It was such fun to come into work and get to go out on these outings.
What do you like best about working at Gillette? I love the atmosphere and my co-workers. Everyone at Gillette respects one another and is willing to go the extra mile for you.
Do you have any children or pets? I have four sons: Shane 24, Eric 21, Ryan 19 and Cole 17. I also have one dog named Gizmo – she is, of course, a female because I am so outnumbered.
If you could travel anywhere, where would you go? Australia, it’s a place I would love to explore.
What are some of your hobbies outside of work? My hobbies outside of work currently center on hockey and soccer, but I also like to take walks and hike. I also see wine tasting in my future!
