What I love about my job at Nestlé Purina is what I loved about what I did in the Navy. No two days are the same! I love challenges and variety. I do have the privilege of taking care of our sick associates and answering medical questions that they have, but I get to spend time teaching them. Sometimes they have questions about something their doctor told them, or they have a problem that they don’t understand, or the doctor is testing for a certain diagnosis that they are concerned about. I can spend more time with them actually answering all of their questions, which you never have time for in a private practice. I can plan educational events like lunch-and-learns. But, I can also be part of our safety team, work with Community Affairs, go out to our other local facilities to give flu shots (I was the first person that I know of in the Navy that used to go from the clinic to my squadron’s hangar to give flu shots and medical screenings) and help plan awesome companywide events, like our Health Fair and our Veteran’s Day celebration.
