What I do Guide the clinical and strategic direction-and lead over 100 staff members-for the organ and tissue recovery program for the State of Maryland. The program facilitates over 600 local organ transplants and thousands of tissue transplants every year.
Why Baltimore? Baltimore has the unique mix of academia, culture, access to the ocean, mountains, and Chesapeake Bay. For me it provides the ideal balance between work and pleasure, while offering a great mix of small town and city life appeal.
Susana Vega ’07
Johns Hopkins Hospital
What I do Work as a nurse at the Johns Hopkins Hospital in Weinberg 4C in the Department of Surgery, volunteer at two organizations supporting Baltimore’s victims of intimate partner violence-House of Ruth, Maryland and Adelante Familia–and take graduate courses at the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing.
Why Baltimore? I love Baltimore for not denying what it is, with all its quirks and vices and charm. It thrives with its own unique character and strength of spirit in the face of troubles. It’s real.
Doris Addo-Glover ’92
Senior Clinical Quality Specialist
CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield
What I do Manage cultural diversity and health disparities initiatives, administer cultural diversity training, and develop partnerships with communities and institutions.
Why Baltimore? I have lived in the Baltimore area for over 20 years. Baltimore has much to offer-warmth, friendliness and so much more in academic institutions, health care facilities, careers, art, social life and history. This is a town after my heart!
Deborah McCleary, RN, BSN
Patient Care Manager, Medical ICU and Rapid Response Team
Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center
What I do Manage the Medical Intensive Care Unit and Rapid Response Team at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. I lead an exceptional team of dedicated nurses, techs, secretaries, and nursing students to provide cutting-edge care for critically ill patients and those in crisis.
Why Baltimore? I love living on the edge of the city where I can access the culture (concerts, plays, aquarium), dining opportunities (LOVE the crab and crabcakes!), an international airport, and even outdoor recreation. Baltimore provides us a gateway to great neighborhoods and the world!
