CENTRAL STERILE REPROCESSING ASSISTANT
As an assistant in the Central Sterile Reprocessing department, I’ve been responsible for many aspects concerning patient safety and industry standards. Some responsibilities include the acquisition, inspection, sterilization, and redistribution of Alairis, KCI, and Kendall medical equipment. As an assistant noticing the opportunity for advancement, I’ve been praised for my eagerness to answer the phone more often than the technicians and specialists, and figure through the SPM system where items, instruments, and electronic equipment are throughout our department. Attention to detail, a willingness to learn, and an understanding of industry standards are paramount in this role.
JANUARY 2011-JANUARY 2017
I started as a mason tender and worked my way up to become an apprentice mason. Responsibilities as a tender included; mixing mortar, stocking materials such as cinder blocks, stone veneers, bricks. As a mason, I was responsible for managing my tenders and creating veneers, fireplaces, retaining walls and patios out of natural and faux stone. A willingness to hard work was key in this role.
BACKCOUNTRY SNOWMOBILE GUIDE
DECEMBER 2012- CURRENT
I helped clients fill out damage agreement paperwork, presented a hands-on demonstration, then guided them throughout Mount Mansfield on their snowmobile tour. Clients spoke different languages, had different skill levels, and varied in age. Being a good leader, as well as patient, was important in this position. I was trained for emergency situations and passed snowmobile guiding and first aid tests. Teamwork with other guides and the office was essential.
I started as a laborer and worked my way up to lead foreman. I used and performed maintenance on commercial landscaping equipment such as zero turn mowers, garden edgers, and garden trimmers. As the lead foreman, I managed crews, completed billing paperwork, and wrote out estimates for potential accounts. Hard work, leadership, and customer service were key.
