Who Am I- Emily

By Pacific Retina Care

Name: Emily

A little history:

I was born and raised in Wisconsin and moved to Hawaii in 2018.  I am the youngest in my family and was the first to graduate college. I graduated in the spring of 2017 with my Bachelor of Science in Public Health with a secondary major in Spanish. Moving to Hawaii has been an adventure of a lifetime and I am so glad to be here!

What do you do in your free time:

In my free time I enjoy going to the beach or doing anything outdoors.  I also love spending time with my family when I am able to do so.  I am also a pro at napping and watching Netflix!

What do you do for PRC:

At PRC I am a patient coordinator.  Just a few of my responsibilities include checking patients in and out for their appointments as well as answering the phone and making calls.  I also make sure patients who need referrals have them.

How long have you been working at PRC:

I have been working at PRC for just over a year.

What is your favorite thing about PRC:

My favorite thing about PRC is the people—both the patients and the staff! All of us at PRC get along really well and I consider them my ohana away from home.  I have been able to learn so much from each of my coworkers and especially Dr. Tafoya.  He is a great educator! I am beyond thankful that PRC has let me be a part of their incredible family.
