She was nominated for the award by three co-workers who said, “Wendy puts the ‘T’ in Teamwork. She is an excellent nurse with wonderful skills and resources. Wendy is motivated and always goes above and beyond to assist patients and co-workers. No matter how tired she is, you will always see her smiling and laughing. Wendy is a true gem and just an extraordinary nurse and person. It has truly been a pleasure to work with her.”
