April 2021 Employee of the Month!
Shannon was born in Omaha, Nebraska and she has 5 children ranging from 11 to 25. Her husband was in the military, so she has lived in many places, including Germany and Hawaii. Tim’s last duty station was Fort Riley and they decided to retire here and bought a house in Hope, KS. Shannon worked in the medical field before she became a stay-at-home mother and it felt right to go back into the medical field after staying home with her children for 11 years. During that 11 years, she went back to school and got her bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice, but was always pulled back to the medical field. Shannon has a granddaughter who will be born near the end of July and she cannot wait until she arrives!
Shannon says, “My favorite part of working at Herington Hospital/Clinics are the patients. Patients come to you in a time of need, but sometimes we need them just as much. I have learned so many things from just talking with patients. I have met so many wonderful people who make getting up in the am and coming to work worth it!”
Quote from a fellow staff member: “Shannon never declines a challenge or task, she is a “go to employee” when something needs done quickly and accurately.”
Congratulations Shannon and thank you for the great care you provide to our patients and community!
