How long have you been with Trinity?
Almost 2 years
What is your role in the organization?
Chief Clinical Officer
Do you work at the corporate office?
I share my time between my home office and the corporate office, in addition to spending time on the road visiting our clients all over the country.
Tell us about yourself.
I have 2 very special fur babies, Oliver and Biggie, who love to come to the corporate office and get spoiled by our team members. I love, love, love boating. I spend as much time as possible on my boat exploring the Carolina waters. The water has forever been my “happy place”.
If your co-workers had to describe you in one word, what would they would say?
I would hope that my co-workers would describe me as honest and humble. I feel that to be a leader, you must lead by example and integrity. I’m very protective of the culture that our founder has worked so hard to establish, and I hope that this shows daily in all that I do as a part of the Trinity team.
Is there a person, character or quote that has inspired you to “pursue excellence?
My mentor, Dr. Troy Gamble, established early in my career as a Nurse Practitioner to live and practice by the following: “Take care of your patients. Take care of the people that work for you. And the rest will fall into place.” In the work that we do every day at Trinity, our biggest responsibility is to ultimately take care of patients. We are working through the amazing healing hands of our nurses to take care of someone’s loved one. That is a huge responsibility. And it’s one that we take very seriously.
What do you appreciate most about our travelers?
I can relate to the joys and struggles of nursing. I’ve been there. I’ve been the nurse laying on the floor with my patient newly diagnosed with cancer. I’ve cried with patients and families as they have made hard decisions. I’ve slept in the hospital for 3 days during an ice storm to make sure that our patients had someone to care for them. I appreciate that our nurses go over and beyond their call of duty because it is a calling for them, as it has always been a calling for me. I know that God put me on this earth to take care of people.
How did you come to work at Trinity?
I come to Trinity from a hospital background as a Chief Clinical Officer and Family Nurse Practitioner.
What is your favorite part of working with the Trinity Team?
I love everything about working with this team. Trinity is a family, not a job. We share a common purpose as we also enjoy a feeling of community each day.
