Dani's Favorite Sound Memory!

Next up, our front office coordinator extraordinaire. Although she has been with our team the shortest amount of time, she had plenty of memories in the books. We asked Dani to share her favorite memory during her time here at Sound!

Although I have many good memories from the few months I have worked at Sound, this memory is one of my favorites. During my first official week at Sound, a delivery man came into the office with a beautiful vase of flowers and dropped it off at the front desk. I immediately assumed that they were for one of my co-workers. I set the flowers to the side, so someone else could claim them. 

I continued working away at the front desk, trying to learn all my new responsibilities, when Melissa walked over to me. She pointed at the flowers and said, “Oh Dani, these are for you.”  I then noticed my name on the card.  I was completely taken by surprise and wondered who would be sending me flowers at my new job. That’s when Melissa let me know that she and Jody had them delivered for me, to welcome me to the Sound team.


 The flowers were a sweet and thoughtful surprise that truly made me feel welcomed to the team. I am very grateful for my team members and look forward to creating many more memories with them and our wonderful patients!
