Children’s Volunteer Services presents: Red-Vested Rockstar!
1. Why she ROCKS?!
Megan is a volunteer on our St. Paul inpatient units, and has earned over 105 volunteer hours to date! She has a contagious smile and ability to help kids focus on being… kids (not their hospital stay)!
“I love working with children of all ages! I also plan to get into the healthcare field in the future and thought that Children’s would provide an awesome experience as well as the exposure that I desired.”
2. Favorite thing to do outside of volunteering?
“I like to spend time with family and friends. I love being outdoors, attending sporting events and traveling to warm places.”
3. Do you have any kids or pets of your own?
“I do not have any children yet, or any pets at home… but I did have a pet rabbit in college named Niblet! I also love seeing the PAWH team come in at the end of my weekly volunteer shift!”
4. If you could create a new candy bar, what would be in it and what would you name it?
“I would create a s’mores candy bar! The bar would contain a graham cracker crust, a gooey marshmallow and chocolate filling, and graham cracker crumbles on top!”
5. Share a favorite volunteer experience or story:
“Every week there is a new experience and opportunity to help make a patient, sibling of a patient, or family member’s day at Children’s Hospital! Whether it is playing a game with a child, sitting bedside while a parent grabs a coffee, or simply finding a family a movie to watch, it is very rewarding to make their stay with us as pleasant and comfortable as possible.”
Thank you, Megan, for providing incredible service and care to our patients and families!
