How long have you been with Nova?

One year and six months

Why did you decide to go into the healthcare industry?

I chose the healthcare industry because I take joy in helping people and felt that healthcare was an area where I would be most effective.

What do you like best about working at Nova?

I enjoy working at Nova Medical Centers because I know the company is committed to excellence. In addition, Nova supports it’s physical therapists in furthering both their skill set and career as a whole.

Fun fact about you:

I’ve been swimming with sharks! 🙂

The best advice you were ever given:

I don’t know if it was the best advice I’ve ever been given, but my basketball coach in high school loved quotes. One of his favorites being:

“Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard.” – Tim Notke.

I still think about this quote from time to time, remembering that work ethic is imperative in reaching goals and that those goals are not obtained without sacrifice.

What you are looking forward to the most with this promotion:

I’m looking forward to working with the staff in Lubbock and taking an additional responsibility at improving my skill set as well as using my current skills to help develop the market.

Team Building activities

Team Building Activities: What’s your team slogan?

Here, at Nova Medical Centers, we strive to unite our employees around the common goal of providing exceptional, turnkey services for the health and wellness of America’s workforce. We know the benefits of team building activities can make us stronger and increase productivity at every Nova clinic.

So, we asked our staff to come up with a slogan that describes themselves as a whole.

  • What do you want your team to accomplish?
  • How can you inspire everyone to work together and communicate effectively?
  • What are your short-term and long-term goals?
  • Is there a plan in place for everyone to reach their goals?
  • What are your weaknesses and how can your team overcome them?
  • How do you want your patients to remember you?

These are all great questions to ask yourself before creating your own “team slogan.”

Knoxville: Together Everyone Achieves More

Lubbock: "There's no 'I' in team because team work makes Nova work."

CSM2016_960x375The Combined Sections Meeting (CSM) of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) will bring together more than 11,000 of the brightest and most innovative physical therapy professionals in the nation, including physical therapists from Nova Medical Centers. February 17-20 our physical therapy team will be traveling to Anaheim, CA to present their poster abstract. So, I did what any social media professional would do… I asked one of our doctors of physical therapy, Dr. Andrea Hull, PT, DPT to tell me five things she needs to survive CSM 2016.

Don’t EVER say physical therapists aren’t funny.

Team Building: Celebrating the Holidays

Here at Nova Medical Centers we believe team building, and a little bit of friendly competition, can boost morale and encourage our staff members to strive to their absolute best. During the month of December, our clinics participated in a local charity challenge. Each clinic chose a charity that is near and dear to their heart and rallied their co-workers to donate and volunteer for that organization. It was truly touching to see how Nova clinics are impacting their local communities.

Here, at the corporate office, we had a month of Christmas fun!

Week 1: Elf Yourself

Week 2: Christmas PJ Day

Week 3: Ugly Sweater Contest and Holiday Art Project

The Holiday Art Project had a few rules:

  1. You must agree to the art project in order to receive “a kit.”
  2. Your kit will have random objects.
  3. You must use every object from the kit in your project.
  4. The theme is “Whoville.”

Congratulations Carlos Umana (#3 art project)! He was the winner selected by anonymous voting.
