January Employees of the Month

By msequeira

Congratulations to our January 2019 Employees of the Month, Emerson Gonzalez and Ashley Grant!

Emerson Gonzalez is a Patient Services Coordinator who works in (DEA Team) Insurance Verification. He has been with the UNM Cancer Center since February 2016 and has made a significant contribution to the Patient Services Department with his exceptional customer service. He arrives to work every day with a positive attitude, is very reliable, and works hard. Emerson goes above and beyond to help our patients and his co-workers. He is truly a team player and we are glad to have him on my team. Thanks for all you do, Emerson!

Ashley Grant has done an amazing job in her new position as Medical Education Program Assistant, in the Division of Hematology/Oncology, since being promoted into this position about 6 months ago.  She had to learn a whole new position and level of responsibility while undertaking the successful and revamped recruitment efforts for the incoming fellowship match.  Based in large part on her efforts we were able to successfully recruit two top candidates on the match!  Additionally, we underwent a Fellowship Program review by UNM’s Graduate Medical Office due to having new Program Manager for the HemOnc Fellowship Program.  Ashley was able to quickly work with Hematology/Oncology senior leaders and the GME office to provide a successful GME leadership visit and comprehensive programmatic manual.  In addition to her job responsibilities as a Medical Education Program Assistant, she is the primary administrative support for the Division Chief and Associate Division Chief as well as six fellows and ensuring that they are in compliance with all the ACGME requirements.
