How would you describe the work environment at Inova?
It’s a wonderful place to work. Everyone likes their job, and everyone is so smart. Inova selects some terrific people, and that’s what makes it a great place to work. I feel very blessed to be here.
What’s the culture like at your hospital?
It’s a great balance. In my department, you have to be financially savvy to do your job, but you also have to know how to make personal connections. It’s a hospital setting, and you’re working with clinical people. You have to be personable.
How would you describe your team?
At Inova Fair Oaks, we’re very committed to being the best and always improving. It’s a culture of, "How can we improve this process?" We are innovative. The clinical people see you as a resource, and we all work together as a team.
How does Inova support career development?
This is a wonderful place to grow. We’re a system, so professionally there are a lot of opportunities. I started in corporate and moved to a hospital. You get exposure to many different areas, and when you want to try something new, you can.
