To Whom It May Concern: I am interested in the job opening, Associate Dir. Colleague Giving, 136869. Lahey Health has been my opportunity to grow and achieve my goals in the past 5 years. I was not sure of the path I wanted to take, however I knew it was in health care. As a Medical Assistant that was previously a Unit Coordinator at Lahey Health in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) I would like to extend my skills to a higher position. Also being a woman veteran of Iraqi Enduring Freedom &Operation Noble Eagle I offer 6 years of expertise in a secretarial environment and managing a department while deployed. At Lahey I have had experience working with sensitivity to classified information while performing and continuing exceptional customer service for the hospital. For the past 5 years working at the facility I've learned how to manage multiple assignments efficiently often while under stressful and emergent situations. Currently I am obtaining my bachelor's degree for Healthcare Administration with a concentration in Management while working as Administrative Assistant to Department Chair of Hospital Medicine. At the end of December 2014 I started Lahey Health's first Veterans Committee. With the assistance from Patrick Jordan (COO), he has guided and sponsored group meetings while collecting goods for care packages. We reach out to colleagues and their family members that are veterans or currently deployed to support their needs. Please feel free to contact me with any questions. Sincerely,
Education and Training
