My career began at Foundation Medical Partners 22 years ago when I first started as a receptionist at Amherst Family Practice. I also worked at Foot and Ankle Care and then moved to the OB/GYN practice. Then, I expanded my career as the first operator for Merrimack Family Practice, utilizing our new phone system, ShoreTel. After a brief time off to take care of a family member, I remember thinking about how much I missed working at Southern New Hampshire Health. When an opportunity arose for me to return to Foundation Medical Partners to work at Amherst Family Practice, I was very excited. I received the call from a Human Resources representative asking me, “Are you ready to come home?” My answer was, “I most certainly am!”
Since returning to Foundation Medical Partners, I’ve never looked back, and I plan to retire at Amherst Family Practice. As an employee, I’ve experienced exceptional career growth. I’m treated with respect, my contributions are acknowledged and appreciated, and I have had the opportunity to mentor new employees. Our CEO of Foundation Medical Partners is very approachable and comes to our site meetings to thank each and every one of us for our dedication.
Everywhere I go, I seem to run into someone who wants to share a personal experience with me. One afternoon at the grocery store, a woman next to me started a conversation. As we talked, I realized we had a lot in common. It was like running into an old friend. During our chat, she mentioned that she’d recently changed doctors and said she was so impressed by the care she received from the moment she walked in the building. She said the receptionists were kind, cheerful and helpful, and the nurses were exceptional and made her feel right at home. She also mentioned how caring, kind and knowledgeable her new doctor was. When I asked which practice she was going to, she said, “Amherst Family Practice!” My heart felt so warm, and I was so proud to inform her that I work at this amazing practice. It is truly a pleasure to be a member of the Southern New Hampshire Health team!
