This month we are proud to shine our Employee Spotlight on Devika Nanan. a Medical Assistant (PAR) in our Ambulatory Care Department. Devika came to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center five years ago, first as a volunteer for 18 months and in her current position thereafter.
Devika is a native of the Caribbean twin isles of Trinidad and Tobago where she grew up and attended school. After successfully completing seven years at the elementary level she then continued on to secondary school. While in high school she was exposed to a wide variety of disciplines but ultimately decided to focus her attention on Business Principles, Management and Spanish. Before coming to the United States she also attended the Lakshimi Girls Hindu College.
After completing her studies, she soon became a mother. Wanting to provide her children with a better way of life, she emigrated to New York and settled in Queens where she currently resides. She worked hard and was determined to continue her education. Devika enrolled at Garden State Technical College in New Jersey where she trained as a Medical Assistant.
Devika wears many hats. She is a wife, mother of three and grandmother of two. She enjoys spending time with her family which is very important to her. In her free time she enjoys reading, and listening to music. Her favorite types of food are West Indian and Hibachi. When she goes on vacation, she likes to visit different beaches and take her children to historical places.
Devika enjoys working with her colleagues at Jamaica Hospital. She also enjoys her interactions with our patients, as this allows her friendly personality to shine. We are very fortunate to have Devika as a member of our team and look forward to many more years as one of our valued employees.
