Gould was nominated by peers in her local office.
Gould has been with the company for 4 years, and her office can always count on her. She makes it a point to communicate with other members of the care team to be sure that everyone is on the same page for the patients. Her dedication to her patients is unrivaled as evident when she had a patient in need for a lift chair was needed but the family did not have the funds to make the purchase. On her own time, Gould went to a local furniture store and asked if they could do anything to help. As it turned out, a store customer had just given a lift chair to the store and Goud was able to acquire it for her patient free of charge. Patients, family members of patients, customers, and referral sources have all commented on Goud’s compassion.
