Becky's story

Gundersen St Joseph Employee Utilizes Career Benefits

Becky Walker is a massage therapist at St. Joseph's and was looking to expand her knowledge after the pandemic left her unsure about her future with massage therapy. The free grant-supported tuition program provided support for Becky to enroll in the Medical Lab Technician (MLT) program with Weber State, a fully online MLT program. Becky started her clinicals at our Gundersen St. Joseph’s Lab in the fall of 2022 and conducted her spring 2023 semester in both Hillsboro and Gundersen La Crosse Labs. In rural health, with staffing shortages and volume fluctuations, it’s more important than ever to have multi-disciplined personnel. We’re excited to be able to utilize Becky in both our hospital lab and as a massage therapist.    

Removing the financial barrier to learning was a huge help for me. I’m thankful to have had this opportunity to grow my skills and provide more flexibility to Gundersen St. Joseph’s. Being able to do my clinicals at St. Joe’s and within the Gundersen system helped me learn better with people I already had a working relationship with.
