Annette, Clinical Practice Educator

Read Annette's video transcript.

[MUSIC PLAYING] My name is Annette Peterson. And I have a really unique role within a Allina. I actually don't think this role exists in a lot of other clinic settings. And it's exciting. I am a clinical practice educator. I get to support new staff when they start at the clinic, make sure they're getting everything they need. And then I am also supporting the staff that work in the clinic all the time. Allina is large. But we work in these smaller communities. And I was really blessed to be working here at time in my life where we had something pretty significant happen.

My daughter, Malia, who was eight years old at the time was diagnosed with cancer. So that was a really tough period of time. We went through 14 months of everything that goes with cancer. I missed a lot of work. But my work family really stepped up and were a great support system for me, not only during that time, but my daughter did pass away. Coming back, they cared for me as I cared for patients. And they were able to listen and support me and push me when I needed a little push.

I think that's a really unique and maybe a special thing about working in health care is you're working with people who are compassionate. And they know how to care for patients. But they also care so well for each other.



Kaitlin, Registered Nurse

Read Kaitlin's video transcript.

[MUSIC PLAYING] I was a nurse for five years before I had my brain tumor. And I feel like it just has helped me be a better nurse. My patients that I work with, I know what they're going through because I experienced it myself.

I'm Kaitlin Mantel. I am an RN. I was doing home care. And I started feeling symptoms like daily headaches and blurry vision. And then I had an MRI. And then that's when they found a brain tumor, a central neurocytoma. And it was a big one.

So I had a total of three surgeries. And then after the surgeries, I did outpatient therapy at the Courage Kenny in Cambridge. Speech therapy was hard. I remember I was doing my speech therapy homework. And I was trying to write. And I knew what I wanted to write, I couldn't make my hand write it. That was hard. But it just took a while.

So I was trying to decide what I wanted to do after this because I knew I had to go back to work. And then I started meeting with John the chaplain. And we talked about my future. He's like, what if you came and worked here? I'm like, I never even thought of that. And then I got the job. So the rest is history.

You're oxygen's good.

I'm an RN here at the transitional rehab program in Golden Valley.

Walk with the walker.

Yeah, you're doing great. My patients that I work with, I understand what they're going through. I know when they have speech difficulties, I can see the wheels turning and see them trying to mouth the words. And they just can't say it. I know what it's like. I try to give them time because I don't want them to feel rushed. I'm just happy to come here and know that I'm helping people like me. I think that's really nice.


Amy, Registered Nurse

Read Amy's video transcript.

[MUSIC PLAYING] I'm bringing new little people into the world. It still leaves me in awe. I still tear up, especially when a daddy cries. Like, oh. My name is Amy Russell. I'm a RN in the Labor Delivery Department of the Mother Baby Center at Abbott Northwestern. So I've worked at Allina and at Abbott Northwestern for 33 years. I feel like I'm constantly teaching, especially first-time moms, hands-on, close to them, reducing fear, just bringing trust and reassurance that this is going to be an awesome day. So it takes a little bit to get to know the patient and what brings them comfort. But as you get to know them, you can tell what's important to them to make it safe and a beautiful experience as possible.

I had an amazing woman for a mother who spoke into my life and told me what she saw in me, and that she saw that I was a caregiver. I felt really proud when I got my degree and started my first nursing job. It was like, wow. The beautiful thing about nursing in general is that there's so many different things that you can do. I went from working with older folks to working with really young healthy people. It's been a great career change for me, and I've enjoyed it. It's my sweet spot to help people through a physiological process, and see what the creator has done, and how perfectly it all fits together. It's just always a little miracle every day.


Dave, Retiree and Volunteer

Read Dave's video transcript.

[MUSIC PLAYING] As human beings, it's our job to take care of other human beings. I've always really felt that and believed it. So health care is a natural function of that.

How are you today?


That's good.

Hi, I'm Dave Schneiderhan. I just retired. I worked at Phillips Eye Institute in Allina Health system for 27 years. Phillips Eye Institute was truly a place that was designed and operated as a true benefit to the community. And one of the functions of that was to set up this foundation, the Early Youth Eyecare Initiative. And when it started, I wanted to see what it was like. So I just asked to volunteer.

They've got this program to help children and give them the ability to learn. I'll look at the glasses.

That's a doozy right off the bat.

There's missing nose pads. There's that kind of stuff. If the glasses are broken beyond repair, we'll get them a new pair of glasses. Otherwise, I'll repair the glasses or adjust the glasses of the kids who need that.

Why don't you slip them on once. Does that feel a little bit better?


You're all set, buddy.

My purpose in volunteering was to be able to give back and to help other people. And the thing about it is, it's pretty hard to walk out of one of those schools and leave it and not feel good about yourself because they're all happy. You can just see from the expression on their face that they can see better. It's just a rewarding experience.


E.C., Registered Nurse

Read E.C.'s video transcript.

[MUSIC PLAYING] I'm EC Clark. I am a registered nurse here at Mercy Hospital for west. That's the neuro trauma med/surg floor. I love what I do. I love my job. As I enter the patient's room, I want to know what the patient knows about this day in the hospital. I want to know what they're expecting. We talk about the plan of care, so we are working toward the same goal.

Knowing that every day, I can make a difference in somebody's life, that fuels me. And that makes me want to get up and do it again. I've been a nurse at Mercy for 25 years. You can see that there are more different people from different walks of life.

My story is I am a Liberian. I came from Liberia in 1987. I had an idea to do a world map to show that we come from different places. It represents the staff, but also, it can bring about educational conversations. It brings about courageous conversations. It brings about connections. Knowing that you have something in common with somebody, it makes people work a little bit better together.



Billi Jo, Pharmacy Compliance Analyst

Read Billi Jo's video transcript.

[MUSIC PLAYING] My dad actually was diagnosed with cancer very young. When he was getting treatment, the people that cared for him were just—they were light. It inspired me to want to do that in some manner. I wanted to help patients. I wanted to help families. I went into pharmacy and started as a technician, and here I am, 30 years later.

Having a purpose to take care of others, I think that’s what drives me every day. I am a pharmacy compliance analyst. My job is to support those who are directly caring for our patients. I work for Allina Health Pharmacies. I base out of Mercy Hospital Unity Campus, but I also visit all 15 of our retail pharmacies. Allina does a great job at putting people where they shine. You work so closely with everyone together on a team. There’s a lot of roles that you can play, and you make a difference in patients’ lives and help them heal. If I can do it as an analyst, anyone can do that.


Tamara, Mission Integration Manager and Community Engagement Lead

Read Tamara's video transcript.

[MUSIC PLAYING] We’re there to help the people who have the most need. I have two roles at Allina. I am the manager for mission at Saint Francis Regional Medical Center that’s in Shakopee, and then I’m also the South Metro Community benefit and engagement lead. And there was a lot of overlap there with employee volunteerism and community health improvement and actual community benefit. So we really do that work. And it is a calling more than it was ever work or employment.

It was all about having purpose and having passion for what you do every day. Really, it is about honoring the inherent dignity of every human. I love that Allina especially is using the word “belonging,” right? And I love that we have defined for ourselves what diversity, equity, and inclusion mean for us. I try to do within my work for Allina is just that sense of letting people know that you care. I really am lucky I have a really, really great job.


Joshua, Environmental Services Manager

Read Joshua's video transcript.

[MUSIC PLAYING] This work is for other people. This work is for our community, for our patients, for our employees. I’m an environmental services manager at Allina Health at Saint Francis Regional Medical Center located in Shakopee, Minnesota. What drew me to a job in health care, I was back in college. I applied for a job in dietary. It was an opportunity for me to serve the community.

Purpose is passion to me, the passion of what you’re good at, providing whole person care, not only to the patients that come through the Allina doors, but to the staff throughout the Allina Health facility. I’m able to support and enhance patients’ and employees’ lives. I’m able to show that through the work I do at Allina Health, and I’m proud to be a part of that.


Gina, Diagnostic Imaging Administrator

Read Gina's video transcript.

[MUSIC PLAYING] I’ve been with Allina 25 years. My role at Allina is radiology systems administrator, and that means that I support the PAC system, the electronic medical records for the radiology department, and everything in between. I really enjoy it because it’s constantly ever changing. I like the patient care part of it and also having to improvise and use my brain.

So I’m always curious about things that I don’t understand or know. I’d like to learn as much as I can about all situations. I’d like to make a difference, even if it’s small, if it’s just one person. There’s so many people who do such great things every day. There’s a lot of people that do a lot of great things within Allina.
