Rachel Blankenship - 2013 Dream Achiever Award Recipient Catalyst Learning

Eight years ago, Rachel Blankenship began her career at Mercy in the Environmental Services Department. The School at Work program gave Rachel not only professional skills, but also the confidence to move forward with a career. She went on to acquire her GED and started pre-requisites for nursing school. In 2007, she moved to the position of patient care associate and switched her focus to direct patient care. Rachel was accepted into nursing school after she completed her pre-requisites and became an RN in 2011. As Rachel’s coworkers can attest, she is a proven leader and a success.
