The creative execution is based on capturing the individuality of each employee through words and photography. Completed in conjunction with Munn Rabôt.

    AN AURA ABOUR HER

    When baby and mother unite in the way nature intended, it’s a glowing experience. For almost a decade, she’s been creating that special bond, instructing new mothers in the healthy benefits of breastfeeding. And if doing what comes naturally doesn’t come all that naturally, she triples as confidante, coach and unapologetic cheerleader to bring entire families closer together. It’s estimated that breastfeeding will save one million infant lives worldwide this year alone. We think it’s time Carmen had a cheerleader herself. Thank you, Carmen Fuentes, for letting us bask in your aura.

    ALTHEA JOSEPH / EKG PHLOBOTOMIST

    READ ALTHEA’S PROFILE

    A MOTHER KNOWS

    She’s a loving mother of four. That is if you don’t count the patients and staff who have become her extended
    family. Perhaps growing up in a large family of her own explains it. But it seems that she just has this knack for
    saying something uncommonly wise or just knowing when to listen. Her motherly concern for her patients led to
    an improved way of labeling blood samples that gets results back faster. She’s so adept at her job that a former
    president personally requested her presence at all times. It’s readily apparent that Althea Joseph fits the bills
    with us, too.

    CLOSE TO HER HEART

    They never stop being her patients. In her off hours, she’s been known to search the neighborhood, looking
    for kids’ clothes for mothers who need a little extra help. She’s always willing to sit down and talk to someone
    going through some tough times. In between, she manages to run an Ambulatory Care Practice of seven nurses
    and 12 technicians, making sure all her patients get the best care. Recently, she so inspired a group of visiting
    teenagers that they’re thinking of following in her footsteps. She’s certainly inspired us to say Suzette Garcia
    has always been a part of our hearts.
