It’s Staff Feature Friday! Let’s get to know April from our Imaging Department!

Name: April Helland


Job Title:  CT Tech


Why do you love working at Parkwest? My coworkers! They make working FUN.


What was your first job? Yall are going to laugh… I worked at a place called Western Palace. I knew way too much about alligator and snake skin boots than a person should.


Where are you from?  Augusta, GA. My husband got a job at ORNL so we moved our little family up here in 2008.


What is your greatest accomplishment?  My 3 boys- ages 24, 20, and 14. They make me proud.


If you could live anywhere, where would it be? On a beach somewhere!


What is your favorite movie of all time?  Bridget Jones Diary, the first one of course.  So funny!


What is your favorite food? Mexican, all of it. Literally, all of it (and the margaritas too)


What is your favorite vacation spot?  Destin! I love that it isn’t as crowded but still gorgeous.


Would you choose a free trip or money? Money- I’d use it to fund a mission trip to Peru. I’ve never gone and I feel like my heart is lead to go soon.


*Note from her leaders: April is the sort of person that gives a piece of her heart to every patient. They love her, we love her, and are so proud to see her hard work recognized for Staff Feature Friday!
