Our GMC Team - meet Katie Pope!

Story image 1_0

Meet Katie Pope!  She is the first employee drawn in an ongoing Friday series featuring our GMC Team!
Katie has been with us for 3 years now as a Medical Technologist.  She received her Bachelor’s Degree from PSU and did her year of clinicals at (what was then) St. John’s School of Medical Technology in Joplin.  After receiving her degree, Katie went to work for Via Christi in Pittsburg where she worked nights for 15 years as a Med Tech. She now works days and said it was quite a switch for her to go from working 9:00 pm until 7:30 am to 5:30 am until 2:00 pm!
Katie resides in Walnut with her husband Blaine and 3 children. Kara is 13, Chloe is 9, and Luke is 4. She enjoys bowling and traveling with a team in Erie at the bowling alley that her husband manages.
When asked what she likes about GMC she said, “If is more of a family atmosphere than a corporation.” She appreciates that people genuinely care about one another and actually listen for her answer when they inquire how she is.  “I have only been here for 3 years but it seems like longer – but in a good way,” Katie said.  “It feels like home.” We are so glad Katie is now part of our GMC family! #OurGMCTeam
