Five Question Friday: Andrea Herbert
Meet Andrea Herbert, a CT/MRI technologist at our St. Paul hospital.
How long have you worked at Children’s?
I have worked at children’s for 13 years.
What do you love most about your job?
I love the variety of my job. I love working in CT/ MRI and X-ray. I get to advance in all three areas, and my skills continue to grow. The variety keeps me challenged at work, which is very nice since I have been here for 13 years.
What do you think makes kids great?
I think kids are great because they are positive and upbeat, for the most part. If they have something like cancer or a brain tumor, they are able to not dwell on it and continue being and acting like a kid. Also, when they are scared, I can work with them to make their tests not scary at all, and that is very rewarding when I see a smiles on their faces.
How do you spend your time outside of work?
I spend a lot of time with my two kids, my boyfriend and my new puppy. We like to go on bike rides, walks and runs. I also love to go to concerts and out to new restaurants.
What’s your favorite restaurant?
My favorite restaurant is Ruth’s Chris.
