Michelle Richards

Nursing Education Department

Star Performer, Michelle Richards"Her dedication shows in all aspects of her job - she treats everyone that comes to her desk as a top priority." This is what co-workers have to say about our December Star Performer of the Month, Michelle Richards.

Michelle began her career at LGH 12 years ago as part of the Nursing Education Team. As Administrative Assistant, she juggles many hats and interacts with staff on all inpatient floors, as well as educators and outside instructors. Her many responsibilities include: managing the Nursing Division calendar; coordinating orientation for new nurses; CEU paperwork; maintenance of the education files; scheduling of classes, students, and instructors; production of teaching materials, as well as many other tasks that helps keep the department flowing smoothly.

"Multiple educators teaching different classes each week means a lot of teaching materials and handouts. Michelle gets it all done on time, keeps it organized, and never hesitates to fit in those ‘last-minute' changes," says Jodi Theile, RN, Nursing Educator.

"She's professional in all aspects of her job, and always has a warm smile. She's able to multi-task and always wants to make the jobs of the Nurse Educators easier," says Linda Elliott, RN, Director of Nursing Education. "She never forgets to serve patients and staff at LGH in whatever way she can - even at a moment's notice."

Michelle lives in Pelham, NH, with her husband Bob and son Daniel. In her spare time, she likes to cook, entertain, and enjoys going out dancing with friends. She's a huge Red Sox fan and loves to travel to her favorite destinations of Aruba and Bermuda.

Congratulations, Michelle. You're a Star!
