  • How long have you worked at Parkwest? 20 years! Since 1998! 
  • How much has the hospital grown or changed since you were hired? Gowns had no pockets. We used safety pins to hold up telemetry monitors.  the Electrodes would not stick majority of time and had to be taped to our patients.  Gowns had no snaps, and were one size fits all with a slit straight up the back.
  • What’s your favorite memory of working at Parkwest? My favorite memory is working on CSU with a great team of nurses that cared for each other and supported each other at work and during difficult life times as well.  Many of these people became my great friends because of what we shared and remain that today.  Those times became the best memories. 
  • What’s kept you at Parkwest over twenty years? Those memories are the reason I’ve stayed here so long.
