Melva's story

Working at nonprofits has been my passion; caring for others is at the heart of how I live each day. I became an executive assistant when I left Washington, D.C. and returned to Kansas City to care for my mother. By training, I am a social worker and through the years, I have held other positions including vice president. However, I know that a title doesn’t always capture the many aspects of a job! I came to Children’s Mercy to serve as the Executive Assistant for the Physician-in-Chief and the SVP of Ambulatory and Physician Operations, but I was hired to be a leader and trusted advisor for my colleagues. I champion their vision and coordinate the necessary support to enable them to achieve positive results. Additionally, I play an instrumental role in helping to maintain teams, support successful systems and perform various activities in collaboration with others.

To work at Children’s Mercy is to make a difference. We ultimately serve to provide the very best care to the children and families that walk through our doors. There is teamwork throughout this organization and everyone understands our mission and vision. Additionally, this is the most diverse and inclusive place for which I have had the opportunity to work. My co-workers are passionate, helpful and considerate – and I consider it an honor to call this so much more than a job. I am a better human because I chose Children's Mercy ... and they chose me!
