“I have the best job in the world! Working at the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt and living in Nashville is a spectacular combination of world-class health care delivery in an amazingly livable city. In just a few minutes I can travel between work and home, allowing me to feel a balance between my responsibilities at each. Having been a patient at Vanderbilt in 2014 when I had cancer gives me an even deeper appreciation of the impact the Medical Center provides to our patients and families.”
