I enjoy my job, people I've worked with over the years, and the opportunities and accomplishments I've had at UAMS. I've worked with others to design, construct, renovate and upgrade buildings used to house and treat patients, provide a safe and reliable work place for doctors, researchers, and staff, and to provide an environment for medical students to become nurses, doctors, pharmacist, and so on.
Unfortunately we've experienced and endured some tough times over the past few years with a major budget deficit and other issues. However, changes are currently underway for improvement for which I'm hopeful and thankful.
As with any job, there are things I'd like to see improved such as comparable salaries and better opportunities for advancement. However, overall this is a great place to work and we're all working for a worthwhile mission. There's a lot of good that happens here, and being a part of that is challenging, exciting and rewarding.
