Congratulations to Naomi Valles (Chemo Infusion) and Monica Candelaria (Fiscal)
Naomi Valles, Chemo Infusion, goes above and beyond every day by giving outstanding care to her patients and helping her colleagues on a daily basis. Her coworkers often mention her first as someone who needs recognition for the amazing work they do. Her positive attitude serves as a role model for others. She is knowledgeable and resourceful, inquisitive and analytical. Naomi makes the UNM Cancer Center better by exhibiting behaviors of excellence.
Monica Candelaria has been with the Cancer Center since June 2017 and has made a significant contribution to the Fiscal Department. She has shown enthusiasm to learn and grow professionally as an Accountant and is always willing to assist our team, as well as staff and faculty. She works closely with the CCRA (Cancer Center Research Administration) team to track fiscal activity of Research Grants and has also become a known point of contact for fiscal requests in the Clinic. Monica demonstrates a high level of performance and is always willing to go the extra mile. The amount of effort she puts into her job are noticed and appreciated, specifically, the extra hours she put in this last month during the close of the fiscal year. She is always ahead of the game with daily tasks and continues to take on new roles/projects as needed. She displays a positive attitude toward work responsibilities and has a “teamwork” attitude. We are very proud to have her on our staff. She is most deserving of the Employee of the Month recognition.
