“From my very first training session at Montfort, I knew it was the right hospital for me. I felt at home right away. Every day, I feel fortunate to be able to work at a job I love and sit on committees that I care about deeply. I am proud to provide my clients with high-quality services. I also get to keep my skills updated through the continuous training offered to me.”
