Katy Caldwell is executive director of the Legacy Community Health Services Inc. Caldwell has been with the company for fourteen years, and says that improving the lives of her patients motivates her each day.
“Every night I go home knowing that the lives of our patients are better because of the work we do at Legacy Community Health Services,” says Caldwell. “Throughout the 14 years I have been with the agency, I know there have been hundreds of occasions where our health care services have saved someone’s life … some of these patients I know personally. It’s always encouraging to be successful in one’s career, but to be both successful and know that your success is saving lives is deeply motivating.”
Caldwell is a firm believer in mentorship, and considers it a necessity for success. “Find someone that you respect and trust to be your mentor,” she advises. “Seek their counsel as you move through life and your career.” –zondra hughes
