Volunteer Services is excited to welcome our newest Child Life Liaison: Melissa Moffitt!
What better way to get to know Melissa than have her answer some fun questions:
What excites you most about working at Children’s?
“I love coming to work at a place where everyone is so passionate about helping children and their families! Being a part of an organization that is built by a community of people working together to benefit our patients and their families is incredible and I see that play out every single day here at Children’s – it is truly inspiring!”
Favorite thing to do outside of work?
“ I love to be outside! When it’s warm out, I like being at the lake, boating, camping, and hiking and in the winter I like snowshoeing, ice skating, and skiing!”
Something unique or interesting about you?
“Over the past few years I have really gotten into hot yoga and go several times a week. It’s good exercise and it’s great for the mind – the warmth in the winter is amazing, too!”
“ I always think of the Incredibles family when I think of superheroes – Mr. Incredible, Elastigirl, Dash, Violet (my favorite!), and Jack-Jack! Such a fun movie and great superheroes abound! “
Do you have any pets?
“I do! I have a 7 year old dog named Lincoln (he’s the cutie in my picture!) who I adopted when I was in undergrad. We aren’t sure of his breed, but he has the best temperament and loves people!”
What word comes to mind when you think of a volunteer?
“AMAZING! Really, I feel super lucky to be working so closely with all of the wonderful volunteers here at Children’s – they truly make a huge difference in the lives of the patients and families treated here.”
If you could create a new candy bar, what would be in it and what would you name it?
“My favorite candy bar ingredients are chocolate, caramel, ice cream, and cookies – so I would put those ingredients all together to create the Creamy Caramel Bliss Bar!”
Melissa, we are thrilled to have you join our team! Thank you for all the support you provide to patients, families, volunteers and staff!
