Interview with Dacia
Tell us about yourself
I am a mom of two awesome kids and two dogs, who I also consider my babies. I love spending time with family, especially if it involves being outdoors. I enjoy a good book, cooking a delicious meal, and traveling to new places.
Why did you become a Patient Care Coordinator?
I have been in an administrative role in one form or fashion my entire life. When the opportunity to join TEAM 4 Kids arose, it felt like a natural transition to expand my skill set and contribute to the team. The fact that I would get to work around kiddos reaching their goals was a bonus.
Why do you think your coworkers nominated you for being compassionate?
I think my coworkers nominated me for being compassionate because I try to lead with empathy, in every transaction I have. In any situation, whether it be with teammates or parents, I do my best to ensure they feel heard and seen because you never know what others are going through. Life can be tough, so I follow the old-school rule: treat others how you wish to be treated.
What do you love most about working with TEAM 4 Kids?
What I love the most about working at TEAM 4 Kids is the goal-oriented leadership. I feel very encouraged and supported in pushing myself professionally and personally to meet my goals. Getting to come to work every day and work with the most awesome humans doesn’t hurt either.
If you could make one wish, what would it be?
I have so many wishes, but if I can only choose one, it would be to travel to Europe, specifically Italy. I want to experience the culture and eat all the foods.
