I’ve been in healthcare for a little over ten years. It’s a passion of mine to help others. I started as a housekeeper, and at that moment in my life I learned what I feel to be the most important trait to have working in healthcare: Empathy! I’ve progressed over the last ten years, but no matter my role helping and serving others has always been at the foreground for me. I’m excited to have the opportunity to fulfill that passion here at Duke! Something I heard years ago will forever stick with me: "treat the janitor with the same respect as the CEO." Duly Noted!
