What is your job title?

Unit Supervisor in Cardiac Surgery, Resuscitation and Post-Resuscitation Care.

At which Ramsay site do you work?

Hôpital Privé Parly 2 (Ile de France Ouest Cluster).

For how long have you worked at Ramsay?

Since October 2018, but I began my career in 2014 at the Capio group’s Clinique des Cèdres in Toulouse, which has since become part of the Ramsay Santé group (NB: Ramsay Santé purchased the Capio group in November 2018).

What is your favourite thing about your job?

The bond that develops between caregivers and patients. It’s a difficult job, with poor financial compensation. But we take care of people, and there is close human interaction. In all cases, they are very important to me. It’s a nice reward when a patient tells me that he/she is happy with their health care team. It’s my job to create an environment of trust for every member of the team. Everything is based on mutual trust and respect, when working as a line manager. You have to be able to say anything, especially if there is a problem. There are so many people taking care of patients that the flow of information is a major issue.

What are you passionate about?

Sport. I did a lot of high-level running: mountain races, cross-country, 10 km races. I’ve stopped high-level sport since I became a nurse, now I only do it for pleasure, because time is precious, particularly as I became a mother six months ago. High-level sport taught me a lot: motivation, thoroughness and an appetite for work. My former trainer, Fabrice Morales, inspires me a lot in my daily work as a manager. With him, everything was based on trust, but you couldn’t disappoint him, things had to “get going”... just like in my health care unit today!

What are your aspirations for the future?

Professionally, to be the best rehabilitation CNS I can be. Personally, to stop and smell the roses and slow my life down.
