While following her dreams of becoming a doctor, Nancy Chinski discovered that she really enjoys analyzing specimen. She decided to enter the medical technology field instead, and now has almost two decades of professional experience. After a number of years, a leadership position opened up and Ms. Chinski seized it. She is now the central specimen receiving and processing coordinator at Erie County Medical Center, a hospital that serves Western New York and Southern Ontario. Ms. Chinski loves her job, but she would like to change people’s perceptions of what the lab does. People are always surprised by the role it plays in patient care.
The greatest challenge Ms. Chinski faced was working 40 to 60 hours per week while raising a family. She has developed a strong ability to juggle everything, however, and with the help of her strong staff, she always gets the job done. Ms. Chinski prepared for her career by earning Bachelor of Science in medical technology. Looking to the future, she would like to finished her career, preferably at Erie County Medical Center, and see her daughters accomplish great things. Ms. Chinski enjoys watching travel volleyball, spending time with her girls and relaxing by the pool when she isn’t working.
