Since, this is the official child life blog, I like to talk about things that go on in our department. I would be missing the mark if I didn’t take the opportunity to say congratulations to Jenny Shelton for her promotion to Child Life Manager. We are excited to have in this new role, and we know that she will do a wonderful job.
Jenny has been with Child Life Services for over eight years serving in a number of different roles, including her most recent as Lead Child Life Specialist. Additionally, she recently completed her Masters of Social Work from the University of Tennessee. Jenny brings a wealth of experience and wisdom to this role.
She will be joining Lauren McCann, our other Child Life Manager, and myself, on the department’s leadership team. Lauren will focus on the managing the day-to-day operations of the outpatient portions. In turn, Jenny will focus the inpatient portion of the child life program.
Over the past several years, Child Life Services has grown and taken an active role in numerous areas. Our expanded roles in both the inpatient and outpatient areas have lead to the need for a more robust leadership team. Jenny’s promotion allows the flexibility to provide the necessary leadership to tailor child life services to each specific area of the hospital.
On a personal note, I know that having both Lauren and Jenny has made our program run smoothly and effectively. They have been tremendously valuable to the team and a great asset to me personally. Our program deals with a great number of projects and elements of patient care, and there is no way we could do it with out the help.
Please help me in congratulating Jenny Shelton! She’s going to do wonderfully in her new position. Who knows, maybe I’ll get her to write a couple of these posts too.
