Military Spotlight: Doug Ingram, President, QueueLogix

Dress Right, DRESS

QueueLogix President Doug Ingram remembers the call to action “Right Dress Right,” from his time in the military. When the platoon marched, even if it was only to the mess hall to eat, the spacing between individuals had to be impeccable. Each person was an integral part of the whole.

Amy Palma: Not Your Average Night Shift Scribe

Some call me crazy, but not because of how I act. As I walk into my night shift in the Emergency Department, I am always asked if I worked during the day. Your average night shifter would sleep during the day to prepare for work. I'm not that average. I work crazy hours and my schedule is very hectic so my answer is usually yes. Most days, I work up to 20 hours between two jobs. I currently work as a Medical Scribe in the ED during the overnight shift and as a Veterinary Technician during the day. I also volunteer as a certified EMT during my free time.
