- Building a trusting relationship with mothers and patient family members through empathy and compassion.
My resume is attached for your consideration. Please also find a few recommendations from physicians I have worked with in the past. I would love to speak with you in person about the role and I invite you to reach out to schedule a meeting.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
