Congratulations to our Carolina Healthcare Hero Winners!

  1. Michelle Green:
    Michelle has worked at Beaufort Memorial Hospital for 11 years and has been a Nursing Assistant for over 20 years. She also works as a hospice home health provider for Tidewater Hospice. She started working for Tidewater after her Mom passed because they had taken such good care of her mother.
    Michelle was born in Canton OH, but has lived in Beaufort since she was 5. Her parents were originally from Beaufort and moved back. Michelle has 3 grown sons, 2 are here and one in GA. Two of the boys are in the military and one works at the Penn Center. She has 5 grandchildren – 4 boys and one girl, ages from 5 months to 15 years old. After Michelle’s husband died 11 years ago, she took care of her parents until their deaths. She is obviously a natural caregiver.

    She enjoys the waterfront park area, just sitting and looking at the water.

  2. Lysa Hester:
    Lysa is a Radiological Technician at Colleton Medical Center in Walterboro, SC. She has been working in that position for the last 10 years. Lysa was born and raised in Walterboro and she received her degree from the Technical College of the Lowcountry – TCL.

    Lysa, her husband Seth, and their two children love living in the Lowcountry. When asked what she liked most about her job, she said that she enjoys being able to help figure out what’s wrong with people. And she enjoys working within the community and helping people that she has known her whole life.

  3. Linda Arp:
    Linda is a respiratory therapist. She retired and then decided to  continue working because there is such a need for healthcare workers. She has worked tirelessly and selflessly on the frontline during this pandemic. She often spends most of her time in the ICU and PCU working with patients fighting COVID on the ventilator.  Linda is married with 5 children and 8 grandchildren. She has also served as a host for 6 foreign exchange students. Several of her children have followed in her footsteps as first-responders and she works along side her daughter as a nurse. She is known for her compassionate heart and is always taking care of others often leaving little to no time for herself! She always goes above and beyond for her patients. Spending extra time with those patients without families.

    Linda became a respiratory therapist after her mom was diagnosed with a rare lung disease. Linda was her caretaker while she was sick. Linda is also an 11 year breast cancer survivor. When she got sick she turned her negative into a positive and starting doing what she does best helping others. She started  a breast cancer support group offering friendship and support for women going through the disease at any stage. The group raised money for local charities, take  each other to appointments, cook for each other, bought wigs for people that couldn’t afford them along with numerous other things. The bond these women share is amazing some of them not having families otherwise. Linda is the epitome of what it means to be a good person, a health care provider and just a genuine human being.

  4. Ian Baer:
    From Greenville NC and has been a radiation therapist for 10 years – the past 1.5 at Duke.  He and his co-workers really care for their patients as a team and often put together care packages for their homeless patients.  Ian has a passion for helping and started out thinking he wanted a degree in political science but realized that he wanted to care for people more directly so switched to radiation technology to really get to know and care for cancer patients.  COVID has been a challenge for them with the very changing rules and staying informed for themselves and their patients.  It’s been a lesson in remaining flexible and keeping a sense of humor.
