(Katherine C. Cohen/Boston Children’s Hospital)
Administrative Coordinator, Boston Children’s at North Dartmouth
I get here at 7:30 every morning to get things up and running and set up before patients come in at 8. I check patients in and out, schedule appointments, take vitals, perform EKGs … I do a little of everything. I like that no day is ever the same. It keeps the day flowing.
Because patients do a lot of follow-ups here, I see the same faces over and over, and I get to know the children, and they get to know me. I live seven minutes away, so I often see patients outside of the office too, which is really nice.
I’ve been working in pediatrics for 17 years and at Boston Children’s for two. It’s such a nice place to be every day. People are compassionate and understanding. I can finally say that I get up every morning, and I get dressed, and I love going to work. I love, love, love my job.
