What I do at Broward Health:I am a clinical social worker who wears my cape proudly to serve the Broward Health community. Being a social worker entails a variety of roles; I assist patients with discharge planning and provide on-going support to family members who have loved ones in our intensive care units. Additionally, I've been a pillar of leadership. Over the years I've had the pleasure of training student social workers and incoming staff members. Training has allowed me to give back the values and skills I've gained through my experience as a social worker.
Years at Broward Health: 3
What motivates me to come to work each day:I am motivated to come to work every day because I get the opportunity to make a positive impact on the lives of patients.
My favorite Broward Health moment: Advocating for patients who are unable to do so for themselves.
