What are your roles/job duties as a CNA with the Department of Psychiatry?
As a Nursing Assistant, I take vitals on patients, ask rooming questions, call patients and parents regarding appointments, and send reminders to patients. I assist patients in getting their medications refilled by calling their pharmacy and seeing what needs to be done for them to get their medication. I ask questions, and if they have a question, I do whatever I can to get it answered. I also do a lot of smaller jobs when needed on the third floor.

 What do you enjoy most about working for the Department of Psychiatry?
 I enjoy getting to know my coworkers and my patients. 

Why did you choose to work with child and adolescents? 
I enjoy getting to know the kids and seeing how much they have changed. I enjoy getting to know their personalities and helping kids overcome the fears they may have of doctor visits. 

What are some of your future goals in the department?
Grow as a person, learn different things, and see what maybe I would like to do as a career.

What are some of your hobbies?
I love being at home with my three dogs, an English bulldog, pug, and a Great Pyrenees mix. I enjoy spending time with friends and family and traveling with my dogs! I love taking my dogs on walks and training them to do new things!
