“My favorite part of this job is learning something new every day and interacting with staff and patients daily,” she said. “At Haxtun, I love working with and learning from our great providers.”
Right now, she is currently in school to finish her Registered Nurse degree. She said she has always wanted to work in the healthcare field as a nurse.
“There is nowhere else I would rather be,” Makalia said. “I love working with the public and especially patient care.”
As an MA, her philosophy is to always put empathy first. She said that she always listens to the patient’s concerns and does the best for every patient, every day. Outside of work, she said she loves being outdoors.
“Whether we are traveling or trap shooting, the outdoors is my happy place,” she said. “I have been married to my husband, Bryon, for eight years, and I love spending time with him and my daughter Abby.”
