Profiles of Compassion Society Class of 2020

  • Deborah Fleming, RN
    “I have always felt a sense of personal responsibility when it comes to protecting patients as well as staff. As a nurse, it’s important to identify safety issues and implement process changes to keep our environment of care safe, for everyone.”
  • Jennifer Lieu, MSN, CRNP, APRN-BC, CPHQ, MCSM
    “I am honored to have served 25 years at UM St. Joseph Medical Center. I believe the secret to a long fulfilling career is to continue higher learning. I would tell a nurse entering the field to get involved, be flexible, volunteer to participate in projects on your unit. Learn all you can and find a subject that you are passionate about. Research it and then teach it to others. Be the best version of yourself every day.”
  • Jeanne VanPoppel, RN
    “I stayed at UM St. Joseph for all those years because of the people. Everyone there grows together. It’s the kind of place I always wanted to work. It is the kind of place that I can go back to, to be in good company every day.”
