What is more exciting than doing nothing? It’s safe to say, just about anything.

Before I started working with DDS Integration, I used to work as a surgical technologist. Part of me misses being directly involved in the healthcare field. I try my best to keep up with the people from my past job and also read articles relating to healthcare. One that I came across recently was very cool and interesting.

Tuesday March 18th, 2020 was a day I never thought I would experience. All of my technicians were working from home. I went into the office to grab a few things I would need in order to work from home for the unforeseen future. As I was there I cleaned the office from top to bottom.
