A mother's work and love is never done: RVM celebrates Mother's Day with stories and selfies

May 08, 2015

Where would we be without our mothers?  Mom comes in all shapes, sizes, ages, and types.  She is there for you applying a band aid, helping you finish your homework, making sure you brush your teeth, and inspiring you to live your dreams.  On May 10, we celebrate not only Mother's Day, but all the mothers that are a part of the RVM family.  From mothers to daughters to mother-son/daughter teams who work at RVM facilities, we salute you on this very special day.

Here are some photos and stories that RVM employees submitted about their moms, their kids, and why they're proud of their family.  Check out more photos, "mom selfies" with their kiddos, and stories on our Facebook page.

 

Denise-Delos-Santos_01_story.jpgDenise Delos Santos, RN at Morristown on her mom Elvira Delos Santos, Clinic Coordinator at Bayonne

I wouldn't be who and where I am today without my mom.  Even before I started my nursing career here in Renal Ventures, I used to call her a workaholic! She would work in Bayonne, continue to work at home, and still manage to cook me, my sister, and dad dinner. She would never miss a graduation, recital, show, or whatever event my sister and I had growing up.

She's selfless and cares about others – sometimes even more than herself. She truly cares about her job and is a role model to me and anyone who meets her.

As a mom, she is caring, generous, compassionate, and she taught me to follow in her footsteps.  Because of her, I have learned to be respectful, honest, well-mannered, have self-confidence, integrity, and to strive in all I do. I owe it all to my mom (and dad, but Father's Day is next month!)  As a manager, she treats her staff with respect and was born to be a leader. I see how her staff respects her.  She definitely goes above and beyond to reach her goals and, because of that, she is my inspiration!

It's not easy working in the same company with a relative, let alone your mom. She has been the Clinic Coordinator at Bayonne for more than 10 years. However, my mom taught me to be professional and to build my own reputation with Renal Ventures and I hope to one day have an impact on others as much as she does on her colleagues and patients.

 

Donna-Mosiniak_story.jpgDonna Mosiniak, RN at Trenton

In 1973, my mother was a unit clerk at St. Mary Medical Center (SMMC).  Later, she transferred to the dialysis department as an administrative secretary and was also an administrative secretary in the President's office for Sister Claire.  She retired for a short time and is now back at SMMC as a secretary in the Pastoral Care department.

When my sisters and I were teenagers, our mother encouraged us to apply for jobs at SMMC. I graduated with a degree in Radiology in 1987 and worked at SMMC for 21 years as a Radiologic Technologist. I went back to school for nursing and graduated in 2005. I worked at SMMC, RWJUH/H as a floor nurse.  I was introduced to dialysis by a friend and I worked as an acute dialysis nurse until 2012 and I’ve now been a dialysis nurse at Trenton since July 2012.

My daughter has a bachelor's degree in Kinesiology from Pennsylvania State University. She worked in the rehabilitation department at SMMC and currently works with a world-renowned ophthalmologist at the University of Pennsylvania.

I am blessed to have a mother who has encouraged all of us to enter the health care field and so I have passed that onto my daughter.

My mother has been an inspiration to me in more than just work. She is the true RV Difference. At work there is nothing you can ask her that she will not assist you with.

For every holiday she has taken the time out of her personal life to make something for the patients. At home she always thinks of her kids and grandkids before herself. When people tell me that I look just like my mother, that is the highest honor I could ever be told.

 

Carla-and-Zachary-Simon-02_story.jpgCarla Simon, Director of Nursing at Nederland

I have worked in dialysis for 16 years.  My children grew up with stories of my nursing adventures.  I have always told my kids that you can be anything you want to be in life. Just be happy. It was really no surprise when my son, Zachary, told me he wanted to become an RN. He is compassionate, courageous and caring. He is truly my hero. I was so proud the day he got his CNA license and happy to see him going to work for a local nursing facility. Now I am thrilled to have him a part of the Renal Ventures team.

Zachary  Simon, Patient Care Technician at Golden Triangle and Carla Simon's son

I have always known that nursing would be my future career. I knew because of my mother. Once my mother took me and my sisters to work with her after school. We were able to meet some of the nurses and techs and on a whim I snuck out to peek through the window of the office that overlooked the floor. Seeing everyone working with the patients just left me in a state of awe. I saw what my mother could do to help other people and I knew that someday I could do the same.

As soon as I was eligible to work in the health care field, I put in my application and resume. I’ll never forget the day of my interview. I was working at a nursing home and I could feel my phone buzzing, but I didn’t dare answer it on the job. Finally, one of the nurses announced that I had a call.  It was my mother desperately trying to get a hold of me to tell me that I had an interview within the hour. Now I am a proud Patient Care Tech working towards my nursing degree.

I am proud to say that I am walking in my mother’s footsteps. I’ve always looked up to her in an aspiring way and continue to do so.
