I was hired as a Flex EVS Technician, while attending Bloomsburg University. As I progressed through college I also progressed in roles, elevating to a Part-Time position then to a Full-Time position. Once I received my bachelor’s degree, an opportunity became available to me as an EVS System Training Specialist. I am greatly honored to be part of the Geisinger family and the Environmental Services Department who have provided so many learning experiences and growth opportunities to their employees.
