Our Admin of the Month for February 2024 is Porchae Green, Executive Assistant to three Nursing Vice Presidents at Baylor Scott & White Health in Temple, Texas!
While at work as a Health Unit Clerk, I was approached by an Administrative Assistant in my organization who felt I would be a good fit for the role.
I enjoy healthcare and the many available career paths, so I took a “leap of faith” and interviewed and was offered an Administrative Assistant position within our Intensive Care Unit (ICU).
My favorite part of my job is assisting my Executive Teams. While some days can be challenging, I know that my role has a daily impact that supports the organization's goals.
As an Admin I am most proud to be a mentor to my colleagues. Our organization has many Admin support staff and I feel that mentorship is an important part of relationship, communication, success, and succession planning.
APC was the first conference I ever attended in my career, and it opened my eyes to the vast community that is ready and willing to support our personal and professional growth. With the support of ASAP and the PACE program, I obtained my Professional Administrative Certification of Excellence as an Administrative Assistant. In the fall of 2023, I was privileged to attend EA Ignite in Austin, Texas and my knowledge continues to expand.
My professional superpower is my dedication to personal and professional advancement. I am dedicated to learning and growing, which empowers me to impact the industry and mentor colleagues along the way to being a future healthcare executive.
