How long have you been a member of AAIM?

I have been a member for about eight years.

What is your favorite part of your job? 

I enjoy interacting with the broad base of people within the department and across the medical center.  It is always interesting getting different perspectives from physicians, staff, and others that come from different backgrounds, specialties, etc.  I really enjoy getting to work on various projects and not have such a repetitive job.

How has the AAIM membership been of value to you and your career? 

My first year in the department I was able to attend the annual meeting in Phoenix, AZ and enrolled in the new administrators training class.  That session really provided a lot of valuable information and was when I realized how valuable this organization can be for people in my role.  I have learned so much from other administrators associated with AAIM.  I find that most of us are faced with the same challenges and no one has all the answers.  Everyone I’ve interacted with has been helpful and getting new ideas from others to help strengthen your organization is invaluable.
