How long have you worked at Georgetown?
Two months and 17 days
What led you to your position here at GUMC?
Georgetown University is known for its unmatched level of professionalism and growth opportunities.
In your role, how do you interact with the GUMC community?
I work one-on-one with students of the School of Nursing. I know that these students are the future leaders of this country’s medical field, which makes this job worthwhile.
What do you enjoy most about your job?
I love that I have a great degree of control within my position. I have been working hard to maintain that level of trust with my boss and other colleagues. I feel like this has allowed to create my own lane and engage with all aspects of my position.
What is a skill you have that might surprise people?
I love to garden. I am a HUGE plant person. Lucky bamboo is my personal favorite indoor plant and bell peppers are my favorite outdoor plant, especially in the summer.
What did you learn about yourself as a professional during the pandemic?
I learned the real importance of work-life balance. Since our homes have become the center of our lives, it was important for me to enjoy my personal time and space for myself.
What do you like to do in your free time?
I love to watch thriller movies, shop and read.
What is the best lesson you have learned from working at GUMC?
I learned to always have courage. In my new role, I was hesitant in suggesting ideas and thoughts I had. Now that I am becoming more comfortable in my position and with my colleagues, they have made it a safe place to be open to all ideas and to truly complete projects with a strong collaborative effort.
