Medical Laboratory Technician
MLT (ASCP) (Former Employee) – Brighton, CO – February 11, 2017
Fresh out of MLT school I moved from Portland to Denver to begin my laboratory career. Lucky for me, that chapter began at Platte Valley. For 5 years I had the pleasure of working with some great people: techs, phlebotomists, supervisors, and an awesome lab director! I began working as a PRN and soon after landed a full-time position. The people in that lab were like a second family. Lots of laughter and arguing, but at the end of the day we looked out for each other. I gained so much valuable generalist experience: hematology, blood bank, chemistry, and microbiology. Several years ago I decided to return to school and enrolled in a MLT-to-MT program. My supervisors and lab director were supportive every step of the way! They helped me with course work and took time out of their busy schedules to proctor exams.. Everyone went above and beyond to help me succeed. After becoming a Medical Technologist in 2015, I moved out of state again, but I'll always have good memories of working at PVMC.
fair supervisors and lab director, fun co-workers, good food, great benefits
