Skorzak began her career in healthcare as a nurse’s aide at age
15. By the time she graduated from high school she had already
earned an LPN (licensed practical nurse) certification. Her many
years of nursing experience includes work at a VA (Veterans Affairs)
hospital in California and at the San Diego Naval Medical Center.
Skorzak describes her day-to-day work in the Acute Care unit at ALMH
as busy, rewarding, and challenging.
“My co-workers make the unit a special place to work. They care
about our patients and assist in giving them the individual care
they need. And by co-workers I mean not just the staff on our floor
but all of the departments that provide patient care,” said Skorzak.
Skorzak was chosen by her peers for the award from the 2014
Employees of the Month. The other employees of the month, also
honored at the event, included: Nikki Hamilton, Arlene DeWilde,
Erica Buetel, Deb Owens, Kara Estep, Rachel Sanders, Janna Shaw,
Kalli Rigg, Becky Semple, and Dawn Draper.
