A co-worker recently wrote:
"Her knowledge, compassion and professionalism are not only commendable but also exemplary! Jean displays a kindness that is bestowed to whomever she comes into contact, whether it is a patient, family member or co-worker. She truly cares about her profession and is willing to help in any situation. She is often asked to go above and beyond her job duties. She does this without hesitation. She is a role model for our unit and we count on her daily. On days that she is not working, you can truly feel her absence. She is not only a great nurse and clinical leader, but also a friend to those who are fortunate to know her."
Jean's Director, Kim Street states, "Her love and passion for the art of nursing is demonstrated daily in the way she provides patient care to her patients and families and how she mentors others. Jean is eager to learn and assist the unit in any capacity. Her peers show high regards for her astute critical thinking skills and value her expertise in the Oncology field."
Thank you Jean, for your years of service excellence to All Children's Hospital and your continued passion to pursue perfection.
