The Keystone Health Employee Spotlight for April shines on Monica Heinbaugh, Lead Licensed Practical Nurse at Keystone Pediatrics Chambersburg!
Monica began working at Keystone in 2001. She had previously worked as a night-shift nurse for a year and was looking for a change that would allow her to have daytime hours without working weekends and holidays.
Almost 18 years later, Monica still enjoys her role at Keystone. She works in dual positions – part-time as Dr. Michael Colli’s nurse, and part-time fulfilling administrative duties.
“I get to work with the best family I could ask for,” she said. “And I love watching the families we see grow up. I have met some life-changing people here and I am so grateful!”
Monica’s job involves a variety of duties each day. When she’s not with Dr. Colli taking care of patients, she keeps busy with other responsibilities, including giving vaccines, doing the nursing schedule, doing vaccine inventory and management, charting, and attending meetings.
When asked about what makes her proud to work at Keystone, helping patients is at the top of Monica’s list.
“Seeing some patients who I remember as babies now graduating and becoming adults, and some becoming parents themselves makes me proud,” she said. “I like being able to help patients, especially kids who can’t help themselves and offering services, medical care, and education to those in need and knowing they are leaving with more than they came with.”
Monica was born and raised in Chambersburg and is now raising a family of her own here. She has two boys with her husband Brad – Jaxson, 7, and Abel, 2. Outside of work she keeps busy with trying new DIY projects, enjoys spending time with friends and family, and with her sons.
“These boys keep me on my toes,” she said. “We have soccer and baseball and love being outside!”
Thank you, Monica, for all that you do for Keystone and our patients!
