CONGRATULATIONS to Rachel Chánes, the 2018 Women of Influence Winner for Administrative Champion!
With Rachel Chánes’ extraordinary dedication to Pima Dermatology, leading our staff, and supporting our community at large as Board President at Our Family Services, she was awarded the 2018 Women of Influence Award for Administrative Champion Wednesday, March 7, 2018 at the Women of Influence Awards Dinner, which recognized all of these exceptional women in our community! Her nomination was judged alongside others in her category by a panel of independent judges.
Rachel Chánes leads our practice of 30+ employees with immense enthusiasm, creativity, and a true passion for her profession. Her leadership style creates harmony among our team and a drive to be our personal best. She places an emphasis on creating a healthy work environment that celebrates each and every staff member as a unique individual, rather than just an employee. This, in turn, creates more of a “family” dynamic in our office, where we put unity and teamwork at the forefront for immense success with our patients and practice. She makes Pima Dermatology a truly rewarding place to work.
Of her major win, Rachel stated, “Please know I accepted the honor on behalf of our entire Pima Derm crew. The path to success is a million different steps, twists & turns, and navigating the proverbial forks in the road. Most importantly, I believe the path to success is strictly measured by the people and communities you have the privilege of serving and the impact you can make with each conversation and interaction you have. Thank you again for nominating me. I am so very touched.”
