Rene’s nomination exemplifies this dedication. “Rene works in a very small department where much is expected of her.

“Although she has been a member of the Firelands’ family for a relatively short period of time, she is very committed to the hospital and will always speak highly of the services provided by the hospital. She truly feels it is a great place to work and does not hesitate to share that sentiment with those around her.”
“She is very good at finding the best in people and never hesitates to sing their praises to them and to the world around them.”
Outside of work, Rene thoroughly enjoys spending time with family and friends, kayaking and cooking.
