Meet Amy Swanson, a registered medical assistant, who works at our Partners in Pediatrics clinics in Maple Grove and Rogers.
Describe your role. I am an RMA (registered medical assistant) and one of the lead support staff for evening hours. I am the medical support staff at Partners in Pediatrics and work at our Maple Grove and Rogers offices. I would be the person who rooms you, does your immunizations and lab procedures, takes your X-ray and gives you triage advice.
What do you love most about your job? The thing I love most about my job is working with kids, getting to know them and watching them grow throughout the years.
Why did you decide to go into pediatrics? I decided to work in pediatrics because I love working with kids, interacting with them and getting to hear their reaction to things. Helping people is one of my passions. I am going on a mission trip to Haiti with a group of doctors and support staff from Partners in Pediatrics in April.
How do you spend your time outside of work? I work a lot so when I do have a little spare time I love hanging out with family and friends. Traveling to warm places and spending time in the sun. I love going out and trying new places to eat. I love going shopping and I might have a problem!
What’s one interesting fact about you? I was born in Seoul, South Korea, and I was adopted at 3 months old. I am hoping that I will someday be able to go back there.
