Laboratory Specimen Technician (Phlebotomist)

Regions Hospital

 I am grateful for my experience with Regions Hospital. I’ve learned the value of teamwork and patience. As an LST my responsibilities are on the floors drawing blood, placing IV's and performing EKG's for all age groups ranging from infants to elderly from critical care ICU to observation unit patients. While I have other responsibilities in the lab with receiving specimens on Epic and placing each sample in their appropriate location for the technical staff to handle. Through my time spent at Regions Hospital I’ve only grown in my performance as a phlebotomist, with over 3,000 hours of patient/phlebotomy care and being placed in the top 90 percentile for successful phlebotomies. Regions Hospital has taught me the importance of patient care in such a way that I now strive to improve the health and wellbeing of both members and patients of the healthcare community.

Volunteer Work

Unity Hospital Fridley, MN, United States Dec 2010 - Dec 2011 ER Volunteer 

Unity Hospital instills strong values that employees and volunteers need to have in: the work place, at home, away from home, with friends and family, and even with those who are hard to be around. My volunteer work at Unity helped me develop skills  that are appropriate in a health care environment, such as attentiveness while on shift, caring for those who are in need of comfort or peace of mind, always staying true to strong values, and never leaving a task or obligation unfinished, regardless of the degree of difficulty. 

Volunteering in a hospital environment has given me experience that I would never have gained in other fields of employment. It has broadened my perspective in regard to the medical field opportunities, as I am looking forward to working in healthcare while durring college as well as afterwords. 

Blaine USA World Cub Medical Staff Blaine, MN, United States Jul 2011 - Jul 2011 Front Desk Medical Staff Technician

The job requirements -- ability to work with Apple products, fast typing, maintain a cool temper, and be knowledgeable of certain types of injuries.

American Red Cross Blood Drive

Fridley, MN, United States

February 5th, 2011 - August 31st, 2011

Blood Drive Coordinator

Setting up and working through the long hours of making a blood drive happen is not as easy as it sounds, nor was it unbearable. In the month of February I came up with the idea of running my own blood drive through the American Red Cross, although I wasn’t sure how to get started. By looking on www.redcross.org and contacting their blood drive services, I was able to move forward in conducting a blood drive. The process to complete this project took roughly 6 months and the goal of blood donors needed to be around 20 participants, while including myself in that lump sum of 20. The blood drive was successful and took place on August 31st, 2011, in the parking lot of Bob’s Produce (Fridley) which was sponsored by Dunn Brothers Coffee (Fridley).
