Stephanie E. Gregory
What I enjoy most about my job is the variety of the events with which I assist and or plan to raise money and awareness for Children's Hospital of Michigan. As a Special Events Coordinator, I manage or assist with approximately 28 events each year with a fundraising portfolio totaling over $330,000. Our special events team manages approximately 130 third party events each year in addition to our own signature event. My job is always fun and interesting because I am able to interact with a wide variety of donors from all walks of life and assist them with their fundraising efforts. I also assist with marketing our events through writing our development e-mail blast, updating our signature event website (www.rockinontheroof.org) and adding our events on our Children's Hospital's facebook page (www.facebook.com/ChildrensDMC).
What I find most rewarding about my job is the knowledge that Children's Hospital has touched each of our donors lives as well as mine. It always amazes me when they share the incredible stories they have about the care that they have received here. As a former patient at Children's Hospital, I enjoy working in a place where I strongly believe in our mission and goals and work with others who do as well. Children's Hospital has everyday excellence meetings every Monday where we talk about how to work towards achieving excellence and not just the status quo. At Children's Hospital, you will find out by walking through the door that we are different from most hospitals. Everyone is welcoming and every one goes out of their way to help our patients and families. It is incredible when this is the standard and not the exception.
