We aim to add value to patients and their families at the end-of-life, and assist them to create moments to remember.
Hospice is about living, about giving people access to what they need so they will have the best quality of life during a difficult time. Patients who choose hospice have made the decision, along with their families and doctors, to change cure goals for comfort goals. Hospice believes that through personalized services and a caring community, patients and their loved ones can obtain the necessary preparation for death so that it can be not merely a period of sorrow, but one which gives them deeper understanding of life.
As a returned Peace Corps volunteer I would like to continue serving others and communities in need. On a more personal level, I have seen the benefits of hospice care first hand and the positive impact it had for both my family, and more specifically my grandfather. I am currently working in healthcare as a patient care technician at Davita kidney dialysis, emergency medical technician and emergency room technician for Allina Health. Thus, direct patient care is something that I have extensive experience with. I hold an BA from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities in physiology, biology, and sociology. I have worked in customer service for Sysco-Asian Foods for one year and am knowledgeable in administrative tasks pertaining to photocopying, filing, and follow-up calls.
