Staff Appreciation Week Highlight: BethJune 7, 2016
Beth began working with my team 23 years ago. She is a dear friend and valued co-worker. Her title is Correspondence Coordinator but she does SO much more. Beth makes sure every patient receives accurate information about their treatment in terms that they can understand. She is also our detail guru and is the best at proof reading, which I usually need help with! She takes on many special projects and is great at getting all the facts organized.
Beth is married to Bill and they have a grown daughter, Emily, who is married to Jonny. Beth works part-time these days and enjoys being with her two grandchildren, Adoniah and Judah. She is also a prolific sewer and quilt maker. Beth makes exceptionally beautiful quilts and donates many of them Jimmy Everest Childrens Cancer Unit at OU Childrens Hospital. She is also very active in her church and helps with an outreach program for internationals arriving in OKC. I’m very fortunate to have Beth and her unique skills as part of our team.
