“Yale New Haven Health System has given me the skills and expertise that I utilize with my fellow service members. This organization has earned a reputation in both the civilian and military communities that I am proud to represent. NEMG has reinforced my desire to help patients and their families and has awarded me the opportunity to further my education to do so.”

“Growing up, the value of family and taking care of one another was always instilled in me. I carry this with me during each interaction that takes place with patients, their families and my peers. I approach each day with a positive attitude, ready to make a difference in an environment where I work alongside individuals who share the same passion. I believe in treating patients with respect and protecting their dignity, and NEMG has afforded me the opportunity to do just that. It has also given me the opportunity to grow, work with and learn from an amazing team of people.”

“As a PSA II for NEMG, one of my responsibilities is to secure pre-authorizations for medication and special services for our patients. I think it's important to provide patients with the best possible resources to help ensure they and their families have access to the very best quality of health care possible. Being able to help ease the burden of dealing with complicated insurance company negotiations, so families can focus on what's important - the best care for their child - is very satisfying because I know I am contributing in an important way to the well-being of both the patients and their families.”
