Donna Piscitelli

In the absence of her coworker due to a medical issue, Donna Piscitelli has truly risen to the occasion in the Transcription Department.  She has been extremely flexible in doing whatever is asked of her without any hesitation, taking on more tasks and working extra when necessary, all of this while also helping her new supervisor adjust to her new role.  She has been more than willing to do whatever is necessary to try to get the work out in a timely manner while meeting quality and productivity standards
