Trauma Program Assistant Kathy has received the North Oaks Health System
Employee of the Month Award for February 2019.
After 19 years of working in the medical field in Kentucky, Kathy and her
family moved to Louisiana in 2015. That same year, Kathy joined North
Oaks as Trauma Program Assistant.
A graduate of Russell High School in Kentucky, she was drawn to a career
in health care because of the many opportunities available to make a difference
in the lives of others.
"One act of kindness can make someone's day. So smile, be kind
and positive," asserts Kathy.
Kathy currently resides in Ponchatoula with her husband Joe. They have
three children – Michael, 26; Kyle, 23; and Brooklyn, 16 –
and a 2-year-old granddaughter, Madalyn. The family is looking forward
to the birth of a grandson in May.
Kathy cherishes family time and enjoys boating, shopping and going to the movies.
“Kathy is the backbone of our Trauma Program," affirms Trauma
Program Manager Tyler Brignac. "When it comes to our injury prevention
initiatives, she represents us professionally. Her positivity, organizational
skills and ability to anticipate needs are second to none and were instrumental
in the success of our recent recertification survey.”
