Meet Annie Greene

Department
Sterile Processing Laboratory (2014 SPL Employee of the Year)

How you are changing what’s possible at MUSC  
When young SPD techs join our department, I encourage them to do their best and perform to their highest potential in order for them to move forward and advance their careers here at MUSC.

How long at MUSC
5 years

Favorite fall memory
Driving through the mountains to visit my in-laws in Indiana. Seeing the different color of the leaves was amazing.

Something about my department that people don’t know
Many people don’t know that the Sterile Processing Department exists and the everyday work that we do — make a perfect process work to ensure patient safety.

First thing you notice about a person
Their presence. Whether it’s walking into a room or passing by in the hallway, their emotions, confidence and candor stand out to me.

Most interesting job I've had
Working at a bakery and produce market. My favorite thing to do was cook the chilli.

Name a medical instrument or tool that's fascinating to you and why
Believe it or not, it would have to be something as simple as a mallet. When I started working in SPD, the first instrument set I assembled contained a mallet. I never knew that a simple mallet would be an important instrument in certain surgical procdures until I saw one used. Amazing.

Something I've tried and will never do again
Roller coasters. They terrify me.
