  1. My goal is to make this world a better place to live! I do that by helping others at work, church and as I volunteer. I try very hard to live a life that is pleasing to God and to be kind to all people. My favorite quote is; “Be the change you want to see” by M. Ghandi.

    The legacy that I want to leave to my children and grandchildren and to all who know me is that I was a kind and loving person who truly cared about other people, especially those who are less fortunate than myself. I truly belive that when we give of ourselves to others our life will be “Blessed”. I feel very fortunate to have a great job in the Henry Ford Health System.

    Everyday I strive to make this world a better place and I will leave my mark on this world in a very positive way! 🙂

  2. I will complete my PhD, and my DNP and would like to work with the underserved populations by guiding them to healthier living options that are within their means. Furthermore, I would like to teach them how to care for themselves at a level they can understand and utilize to keep them out of the “system”. I would love to be part of nurse run DNP clinics to work with underserved individuals with chronic conditions. My research would involve developing teaching modalities that at tailored to what specific individuals need based on their coping skills, health literacy and SES. That is my dream for the future-my future.

  3. We as Detroit Northwest employees can be very proud to say, “we have the oldest Activity Committee” within the HFHS – started as the “Morale Committee” in 1997, making us 15 years old. I’ve been the chairperson for this committee for the past 12 years, and I hope that when I retire in a couple years and hand over the reigns that I’ve helped to make this a strong and lasting commmittee. We are a committee that works for the betterment of all employees, we sponsor activities that are not only helpful, but fun. Some of what we do are:
    • Monthly birthday cup cakes
    • Get well & sympathy cards
    • December holiday party
    • Fruit baskets for hospitalized employees
    • Flowers for deceased employees
    • Detroit Northwest newsletter (sharing of employee/family news)
    Piggy Bank Contest
    • Pumpkin Contest
    • Soup & Salad lunch

  4. I want to see that I helped improve patient safety and quality and that I contributed to the financial success of Henry Ford Hospital. I also want to be able to look at my children and know that that they are happy and successful and know that I gave each of them enough time in order to ensure their success.

  5. I hope to accomplish an attitude of caring. Of listening and being present, even when I want to think of everything else. I want to establish an atomsphere of trust and compassion to all I come in contact with.

  6. I want to work as long as I am able to advocate on behalf of seniors. I want to improve the quality of life for seniors especially those who cannot speak for themselves. We owe seniors quality health care, safe and caring living conditions and the comfort of knowing they will be respected and valued throughout their senior years.
