Scottsdale, AZ – November 6, 2014
Flight Coordinator, Jennifer Peterson, might be new to the Angel MedFlight family, but apparently she’s made quite an impression on her co-workers, because she was recently nominated for and won Angel MedFlight’s new employee recognition program award called “Monthly Angel.” This is the first time the award has been presented to an employee since the new recognition program was implemented a short time ago. Jennifer was really surprised and happy to receive it. She said, “I feel really blessed. It makes my heart happy.” Jennifer also acknowledged her teammates for her success. “I thrive in a team environment. I’m really happy to be part of such a great team here.”
Jennifer is no stranger to healthcare or aviation, having spent 15 years in the U.S Air force, nine of which were as a nurse. She’s also comfortable around the jets at Angel MedFlight too; after all she’s married to an U.S Air Force F-16 pilot and Commander. The two just moved to Phoenix after living abroad in Italy for the last four years. Jennifer loved living in Italy and getting the opportunity to visit other countries. Her favorite country she visited was Austria and she recalled how beautiful it is in both summer and winter.
Shortly after moving, Jennifer was job-hunting online and she came across Angel MedFlight and an opening for the Flight Coordinator position. She said, “I had no idea there was an opportunity like this. This job is the perfect combination of healthcare and aviation.” Jennifer really enjoys her job and helping people. She’s had the opportunity to meet and get close with several of the patients she spoken with on the phone and arranged flights for. “I’ve made so many connections with wonderful people while in this position,” Jennifer said.
As for her bright future at Angel MedFlight she says, “I’m very excited about the potential for growth at AMF.” Besides her enthusiasm for her position as a Flight Coordinator, Jennifer is also a diehard NFL fan. As she puts it, “I live, breath, eat and die football.” We wants to thank Jennifer for her hard work and congratulate her on being the first ever Angel MedFlight “Monthly Angel.”
