Excerpts from her nomination form said:
“I think mostly it is the way Brenda smiles while doing her job. We need smiles in a place that can be heavy and difficult.”

“Brenda is a huge asset to the Information Desk team. While it's not her primary role, she is always willing to help out with coverage of shifts-even when it’s last minute. Anyone coming to the hospital gets a warm greeting. Her significant knowledge of the hospital and how everything flows keeps everything running smoothly. Her kindness and dedication to our mission shine through when she is helping our patients, visitors and her own co-workers. We are blessed to have her on our team.”
