Behind the Scenes Award
Recognizes an individual who has made significant contributions behind the scenes to promote ENA’s mission of advocating for patient safety and excellence in emergency nursing practice through their support of a member or members; an ENA advocate who is often seen but not heard and who donates countless hours to assist an ENA member or members in achieving local, state or national goals
Having retired from bedside and EMS nursing after nearly 40 years, Vicki continues to be active in both the ENA Orange Coast Chapter and ENA California State Council. She also teaches in the paramedic program at Saddleback College. Vicki served in many appointed and elected roles at all levels of ENA. She enjoys editing and has assisted new writers in the publication process. While Vicki has had recent opportunities to take on those positions again, she prefers to be in the background as a mentor, helping newer ENA members experience the value of active participation in the association.
