What is your role with BioTek? 
CLS-MA, Altamonte Springs FL

What is the best thing that happened to you at work this month?
Being able to over achieve my goal that was set, business has been slow and to be able to bounce back is amazing.

What is the number 1 reason you joined BioTek?
It was something new and exciting to be a part of. In hopes of learning and being part of something that excited me.

What has been your favorite patient success story?
I have a patient that is currently in her 3rd of therapy, and has remained positive throughout this whole journey. She recently told me she hasn’t felt any issues or taken any type of antihistamine in years and the only reason she decided to do a 3rd year was because she enjoyed our 2 month f/u. Not once has she complained about therapy, she’s been nothing but positive and it shows in her results.

What piece of advice would you give to other BioTek Allergy techs/locations?Maintain a positive relationship with your patients/co-workers and use every moment to build a relationship with understanding and trust.
Set a goal each month and do the best you can to achieve it. Have patience with pediatric patients and treat all with care.

What is the best gift you’ve ever received?
Sounds corny, but the best gift I’ve ever received was my daughter. I was told the chances of having a child was slim to none.

What is your favorite family tradition?
Christmas eve, we all gather as a family while the littles participate in a talent show and our ginger bread man/house competition. This is something that my family has been doing since I was little.

Who would you most like to swap places with for a day?
Oprah Winfrey, she is high respected while being someone who is an advocate for change and has the funds to do so.

Where is your favorite place in the world? 
Anywhere surrounded by family.

What are you passionate about? 
Change, I strive every day to be the best version of myself. I seek finding solutions for the topics or issues that have no answers. I passionate about helping hands... being able to help with hunger in my community and bring a smile to the homeless.
