So I completely forgot, with it being the weekend, that yesterday marked my 11 year anniversary at Mayo Clinic. I have worked in Orthopedic Surgery all, but my first 5 weeks on the job while I was in training. It is amazing to think that I have been in one place so long and it is nothing in comparison to some of my co-workers who have been in my department for over 40 years! I am thankful for my job, the people I get to help and the wonderful people that I get to work with. I truly believe you should take pride in what you do, not just show up and punch a time clock! This is my lovely Mayo badge. Last year I received my 10 year pin (bling), hopefully sometime this year I will receive on-site parking….and yes, I am bitter that they keep pushing the date back….LOL!
