Q: How long have you worked at Einstein?

A: Nine years

Q: What does “More than Medicine” mean to you?

A: “More than Medicine” means that we take a special, vested interest in our patients. It means that we don’t just care about what they’re here for; we care about the total being. We want to make sure that we greet them, that we are interested in them and that we show them that we care. We show them that we are very interested in who they are as individuals.

Q: What gets you excited about coming to work at Einstein?

A: I really enjoy what I’m doing. My life is surrounded with people. I’m in the people business in human resources, and interacting with people each and every day is something that makes me happy.

Q: What is the one word or phrase that describes the type of person you need to be to be successful at Einstein?

A: You have to be a people person!

Q: What is an interesting thing that most people don’t know about you?

A: I’ve ridden a motorcycle since I was 16 years old, and it’s adventurous and exciting. I have a Honda 350, and I enjoy travelling and enjoy the landscape and letting the wind go in my hair.  I feel the freedom and flexibility of riding on the motorcycle whether it’s on smooth or rugged terrain.
