April 2022 Volunteer of the Month


Valerie Poole is our volunteer of the month for April 2022!

Valerie volunteers as a patient scheduler and as an intake screener. She has served 275 hours at Lakeland Volunteers in Medicine. Before joining Lakeland Volunteers in Medicine Valerie worked as an RN at a local hospital serving in the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory and ICU. She also worked as a Hospice nurse.

When Valerie is not at LVIM she enjoys gardening, reading, and traveling. She hopes to visit the Grand Canyon, the Pacific Ocean, and the Smithsonian museum.

Valerie’s favorite part of being a Lakeland Volunteers in Medicine volunteer is that it is “meaningful work, that makes a difference for people. I appreciate being a part of it.”
