“I was actually kind of shocked at first,” she said. “I’ve worked here for 11 years. It’s like a family to me. It really meant a lot to me, because I was really proud of all of the hard work and accomplishments had not only shown to the doctors, but it was recognition from somewhere else, too.

“I was named as a VIP member by Cambridge last year, and I was named Clinical Supervisor of the Year this year, so I was really pleased to get this award.”

Hedrick credited a lot of her success to the people she has worked with.

“I owe a lot of my accomplishments to Gail Allgood,” she said. “She helped me a lot. Through her and Dr. M.J. Fitz-Gerald and Mack Fitz-Gerald here, and just learning as I go, I can just say that a lot of people have helped me along the way. I think it showed mainly hard work and dedication and wanting something and working really hard at it.

“I love it here. I think, actually, it’s more like family and home, besides my real family.”
