Come as you are - Medical Technologists

 Choosing to work at the MUHC is all about finding that life-work balance 

For Anna that means having the time to explore her artistry with makeup. She shares her passion for makeup on social media and often does the makeup for friends and colleagues on special occasions.  When asked why she likes working with us, this is what she had to say: 

I love the bond that I have with my coworkers. I came to work at the Royal Victoria Hospital 17 years ago on a six-month contract right after graduating and never left! The Microbiology Lab has been like a second family to me. They've seen me through hardships, changing careers temporarily, getting married, having a child - I basically grew up here.

We've been through a lot; from the merging of the Optilab cluster six years ago, to being hit hard with the pandemic, but we've pushed through together. Our Microbiology Lab is responsible for testing all COVID samples from labs across the CIUSSS West-Central Montreal, the CIUSSS West Island, and the CISSS de l'Abitibi-Témiscamingue, in addition to the MUHC. We've been each other's source of strength and motivation to keep going and even encouraging each other to rest when we need it. I am lucky to be working with a great team of people whom some have become really great friends.
