Congratulations Alum Natalie Bisceglia!

Recently Natalie (’13), who works at MultiCare Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital and Health Center, received a Daisy Award for her “amazing, informational, and caring service” while caring for an infant who was admitted for monitoring. The family said she went “over and beyond for us which turned this exhausting, scary, frustrating moment into a wonderful pleasant informing hospital trip.”

Great job Natalie!
