What’s your favorite part of your job?
My favorite part of the job is meeting patients and their families. I enjoy getting to know them and encouraging them on their road to recovery.
What’s your favorite thing about the hospital?
Probably the "Can Do" attitude we had at the North Campus that we have brought to our new Frisco Facility. I get the honor of working with very talented people who work hard and always push me to be better.
Describe a typical day.
I get to clinic around 7:00 am and make sure things are in order for the day. Patients start arriving around 7:30 and I start checking them in for their appointments, answering the phones, and emails. And then throughout the day I try to make sure things are running smoothly in clinic and that patients are happy as well as staff.
How did you find out about the hospital?
My brother was a patient in the dyslexia center so I’ve known about the hospital for a while, but after college I ran into Kyle Cavin and he mentioned they were hiring for the Appointment Desk so I applied.
What made you want to work here?
The hospital has such a great reputation in the community and what we do for children is amazing.

Great customer service skills and patience.
What was your first job? What path did you take to get here?
My first job was when I was 16, I worked at the dry cleaners in town.
