I worked with Gwen at Providence Centralia Hospital. I was responsible for orientation/training of new grads coming to the workplace. It was always such a pleasure to work with Gwen and to watch her grow in her practice of nursing. Always willing to try something new and rise to challenges.
My sympathy to the family. She was a talented lady and will be missed.
