Portland Shriners Hospital Employee of the Quarter

Congratulations Jennifer!

Portland Shriners Hospital Employee of the Quarter

We’re excited to announce our new Employee of the Quarter – Jennifer! Jennifer has been working at the Portland Shriners Hospital since August of 1994 in our fiscal services department as a fiscal services specialist. Jen is responsible for all payroll matters including accounts payable, patient claims and anything involving finances.

Jennifer was nominated for Employee of the Quarter because she demonstrates Shriners Hospitals for Children’s core values of excellence, commitment and innovation. She is extremely committed and teamwork orientated, and demonstrates this by always being willing to go the extra mile to help her fellow employees. Her knowledge, combined with her “get the job done right” attitude, helps her solve problems and provide excellent customer service.

One of her favorite parts of working for the Portland Shriners Hospital is getting to work with her coworkers. “I love the people here at our hospital,” said Jennifer. “I feel like this is my second home. Everyone shares my passion for Shriners Hospitals for Children and the mission of our hospital.”

In her time outside of work Jennifer enjoys hiking, outdoor activities, spending time with her family, reading, puzzles and eating popcorn (she loves popcorn). She is also extremely passionate about all animals. “They bring warmth to my heart,” said Jennifer.

In typical Jennifer fashion, being extremely modest and kind, she expressed surprise in receiving this recognition. “I am honored to have been selected as Employee of the Quarter and have to say that I was pleasantly surprised to receive this award. I absolutely love working here and I am excited for the future of our hospital!”

We’re so grateful to have Jennifer as a part of our Portland Shriners Hospital team!
