THREE QUICK QUESTIONS

You've been a PTA in every environment. Why is outpatient your favorite?

Outpatient is my favorite setting to work in because of the patient population. I get to use a lot of my skills I learned while in school and meet people of all ages and backgrounds at the same time.


You're so calm and collected. How does that help you treat patients?

Being calm and collected at the workplace is important because its helps with treating all kinds of patients no matter what they are coming in for. Being patient is also an important thing that I try to be at work... out of the workplace is another story for me... ; )

Your first name is not that common for a female. How many times are patients surprised when they meet you?

My parents thought i was going to be a boy.. however!.. Ryenne was the girl name that they had picked out because of a movie they watched and liked the name and spelling.... I can't for the life of me find what movie it was though. Patients always are expecting a guy before they meet me.. I get "Oh you're not a guy".. a lot.. : )
