“What started out as a temporary assignment has taken me on a career journey from a Medical Assistant to my current role as a Social Worker. These opportunities have allowed me to work with tremendous people of diverse backgrounds, while fulfilling my goal of becoming a difference-maker in the lives of our patients and community.”
“During our COVID-19 response, I witnessed each of us coming together, not only as individual teams, but as an organization. Many caregivers have selflessly adapted to and collaborated on the launch of new virtual platforms in order to meet the needs of our colleagues, our patients and our community.”

“I have been with ChristianaCare for 9 years. Through these 9 years, I have really been able to grow my career and apply my talents within the company. I started my career here as an Office Assistant in a specialty office. I decided to go back to school and was fully supported by my manager to complete my degree. I was able to participate in professional development opportunities to learn and build on my skill set. I am now the Manager, Practice Operations for a primary care office in Smyrna. So you ask, why do I stay at ChristianaCare? I was groomed, supported, taught and able to truly grow my career in the best organization in Delaware.”
