Kaitlyn epitomizes compassionate care for patients in each and every interaction that she has. Kaitlyn has been an integral part of my surgical team for more than five years and it would be impossible to imagine my team without her. She comes to work with patient safety and compassion as the nidus for all of her daily interactions. She is diligent and vigilant with a warm heart and is always eager to learn and educate others. Kaitlyn works hard to ensure the safety, sterility, and adherence to protocol for each and every surgical case, procedure, and patient interaction.
