Meet Melody

Name: Melody Leeds, RN

 

Title and Department: Acute care case manager, Palliative Care Unit.

 

Years at Broward Health: More than six years.


What motivates me to come to work each day: The opportunity to provide compassionate support for our patients, families and our Broward Health Medical Center staff.

My favorite Broward Health moment: My favorite Broward Health Medical Center moment is when we worked as a team during a crisis. Our staff was on point and worked together to provide excellent medical care, emotional and spiritual support for our community. 


Some advice I’d give to a new employee just starting their career in healthcare: Don’t be afraid to ask questions.

 

How I like to relax: Films, travel, reading, nature.


What I’m most proud of personally or professionally: Following my dreams and becoming a nurse.


What’s on my playlist: I listen to all genres, everything from reggaeton, rock, R & B, soul, gospel, hip hop to Ed Sheeran, country and Gregorian chant.

 

If I could have dinner with anyone in the world, alive or dead, it would be: Dr. Stephen Hawking. He had a brilliant mind and contributed greatly to our understanding of the universe. He felt that intelligence is the ability to adapt to change.
