It’s Staff Feature Friday! Today we are getting to know Josh Galyon!

Name: Joshua Galyon


Job Title: RN


How long have you worked at Parkwest? Almost 7 years. I started September or 2010. 


Why do you love working at Parkwest? It’s rewarding to be there on a person’s worst day and help them through it. I have only worked in the ED, so I don’t get to see those patient’s get better throughout their stay, but I like to be on the front end of that treatment when things are usually at their worst.


Where are you from? I was born in Loudon and still live in Lenoir City.


What is your favorite food? PIZZA!


What is your favorite dish at Christmas meals? We don’t do traditional Christmas meals, but I’m a fiend for fried okra.


What type of music do you like to listen to? / Who are your favorite artists? I’m a sucker for some 90’s alternative like Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and Rage Against the Machine.


Would you choose a free trip or money? I only ever go to the beach, so if that’s not the destination, I would take the cash.


What is your favorite book? I don’t read much, but I loved the Percy Jackson series.
