“Talent Acquisition/Human Resources has always been a space that I’ve loved. It’s special and exciting to me, anytime you have an opportunity to change someone’s life regarding a job offer.

“I give parents the benefit of the doubt more now because I’m a parent. I realized that before I had kids, I was more rigid. I would be flabbergasted when people didn’t refill their meds on time or something like that. Now, I can picture their crazy day and I can see how life gets in the way. I’m a pharmacist and even with my own child, there are days where I miss a dose. I feel like I understand more now and I want to do a good job. And we double-check each other all the time. I would want someone else to this for my own kids.”
“This is an amazing place to work. Everyone talks about how amazing Nationwide Children’s Hospital is and then you get here and you really understand what they mean. … I want to be helping people and I want more people to think Nationwide Children’s Hospital is so great. When you hear it on the phone, it is amazing. You don’t work at a call center and get calls all the time with people saying I love you guys and you guys are so great. I get emails with picture of their children and the parent thanking us. I am really happy here.”
