Tell us why you like your job and position.

“I really enjoy the challenge of managing the flow of patients and staff resources through our hospital systems. Seeing the big picture and using that knowledge to coordinate the movement of our patients to the right place at the right time to have access to the resources they need can involve a lot of moving pieces. I am sort of like an air traffic controller and if our patient families don’t even know my job exists, it was a smoother flight during their stay.

“I also really love being able to support the front-line staff here at Children’s Minnesota to help them troubleshoot barriers they may encounter and help them do what they are passionate about doing — taking care of our patients and families.”

What do you like about working in this field/department?

“In my role, I get to work cross department and collaborate with many unique and gifted people who are willing to share their expertise to impact the care of our children and families here at Children’s Minnesota. My colleagues are so passionate about their work and engaged in working toward solutions to improve our system flow. I am always excited for the process improvement work I get to participate in, helping us all do our jobs more efficiently and consistently through innovative and evidence-based approaches.”

Why do you like working at Children’s Minnesota?
