Meet Vivian, our very friendly receptionist. She always wears a bright smile; while answering phones, checking patients in, weighing babies, recording patient’s vital signs, scanning, faxing and much much more. She balances working at PEM with studying psychology, and when she is not working or studying she can be found rock climbing, buried in a book, or cuddling dogs (sometimes all at the same time!).
