Tara Adkins’ coworkers say a combination of a calm demeanor and professional approach to her work puts patients and staff at ease while encouraging a positive and healing environment.

Tara’s positive attributes in the workplace helped lead to her selection as the UVMC Employee of the Month for June. Tara has been a member of the UVMC family since May 2002. An RN and BSN, she works in ICU providing direct care to critically ill patients and serves as a team leader.

“Tara treats every patient with courtesy and respect,” a coworker wrote. “Though Tara has her own work to accomplish, which includes charge duties, audits and preparation for meetings, she never makes me feel that she is too busy to help with patient care. “

Tara said she loves being able to provide direct patient care and bringing comfort to both the patient and their family in what tends to be a very stressful time.

“It is very rewarding to see a patient you worked very hard to save, recover. It is also humbling to provide care to those patients in the last hours of their lives,” she said. “I adore my co-workers and the awesome teamwork that occurs to provide the best possible care for patients.”

When not at work, Tara enjoys participating in archery competitions around the country with her husband and daughter. She also enjoys reading, hiking and spending time with family and friends.
