It’s Staff Feature Friday, and today we’re getting to know a little bit more about Jeri, one of our nurses at Parkwest.

How long have you worked at Parkwest? 5 years and counting

Why do you love working at Parkwest? I love the staff. Doctors, nurses, OT, PT, case managers, cleaning staff, OR staff – all of them. They are like a second family.

Where are you from?  Greenfield, Ohio

What is the craziest thing you have ever done?  Moved to Tennessee from Ohio the day after I graduated from high school and have never moved back.

If you found a $5 bill, how would you spend it? I would pay it forward and probably buy a lunch or dinner tray in the cafeteria for a patient’s wife or husband.

What is your favorite TV show? Blue Bloods

What is your favorite family tradition? We open Christmas presents on Christmas day as our immediate family and cook breakfast together. (Not a cardiac breakfast for sure).

Are you an introvert or extrovert? A little of both. I try to make a friend in everyone I meet, but sometimes I shy away in the beginning.

How do you want others to remember you? As the nurse or person who treated you with respect and love as I would my own family member.
