What hobbies or interests do you have outside of work?

We like to go camping and do various activities with our kids.

What is your favorite part of your job?

I like being part of helping patients heal, and also getting to know people in our community through health fairs and expos.

Why did you choose your career?

My dad saw an ad in the newspaper for a phlebotomy class. He offered to pay for the class for me. I took a weekend course at a hotel and got my certificate. They no longer offer it that way!
