Get to Know our SRH Staff: Carrie Wilson, Ambulatory Care

What is your role at the hospital? 
I am the RN coordinator for Dr. Richards and I also assist with Dr. Sucato's scoliosis clinic. My primary role is providing education to patients and families, as well as helping to get patients ready for surgery to make sure medical clearances are obtained. One day to the next is never the same!
 
What do you enjoy most about Scottish Rite for Children?
The patients and their families!
 
What was your first job? What path did you take to get here? How long have you worked here?
My very first job was as a lifeguard when I was in high school. During college, I had several different jobs. I worked at a restaurant in the summers (where I met my husband to be), I worked for a stockbroker and I worked at Dillard's. I started at the hospital during my last semester at Texas Woman's University. I was initially a nurse tech and then after I graduated, I was hired as a full-time inpatient nurse. As of this month, I have worked here for 32 years and I've been the RN coordinator for Dr. Richards for the past 22 years.
 
What are you currently watching on Netflix?
Call the Midwife
 
Who would you most like to swap places with for a day?
Jerry Jones (owner of the Dallas Cowboys) - although I don't think he could handle my job if we had to "swap"!
 
What is a fun or interesting fact about your hometown? 
My hometown is Des Plaines, Illinois. It is the home of the first McDonald's franchise.
 
What is your favorite thing to do when you're not working?
Watching football and spending time with my family.
