I work with great people that feel the same way about helping patients. Everyone works together to solve problems. I also work with people all over the world who have different experiences and strengths. I get to talk to people in different countries and build relationships with them. We help each other grow in our knowledge and skills.
I always knew I wanted to do something in the health area. I have always had a passion for health and biology. I also really enjoy working with people. I like listening to them and helping them solve problems, and helping them grow professionally. My work is always changing as new technologies are coming all the time. Also, the area of "management" is changing. Work is moving from a many-leveled hierarchy to a flatter leadership. In this management style, we can all coach and help each other which is a very exciting, empowering and new way of working.
Follow your passion! Keep your mind open to lots of different experiences even if they don't seem to be directly related to your career goals!
I enjoy being in nature and doing activities in nature like cycling, hiking, and skiing. I have a St Johns Ambulance Therapy Dog and we visit elderly people in residences. I also help students relieve stress during exam times with dog visits.
During the day, I meet with my team members and other colleagues to talk to them about how their projects are going. We discuss the goals and vision we have as individuals, department and team and how we will meet these. We look for opportunities to do things in new ways. My team and I use reporting technology to look at how we are doing with our data and timelines and resources. We also lead different projects that help us meet our goals and vision for the future.
