NAPW honors Lisa Berrios-Moore as a 2013/2014 Professional Woman of the Year for leadership in healthcare with this prestigious distinction. As the largest, most-recognized organization of women in the country, spanning virtually every industry and profession, the National Association of Professional Women is a powerfully vibrant networking community with over 600,000 members and nearly 400 Local Chapters.
“Working hard is a family trait,” says Ms. Moore. Ever since she was a young girl, Ms. Moore never shied away from hard work, from helping out in the family business to caring for her young sibblings. Later she raised her own two children and pursued an education to advance her career. Ms. Moore’s hard work and perseverance has been instrumental to her success, both professionally and personally.
Ms. Moore first became interested in healthcare as a teenager when she took CPR and nursing assistant courses. Later, when she had to take her own daughter for an x-ray, she became curious about that field of work and asked if she could volunteer to learn more about radiography. “At that point in time, no person had asked to volunteer in the radiography department. Special permission was needed,” recalls Ms. Moore. “I was the first person to do volunteer work in the radiology department at Osceola Regional Medical Center.”
Eventually, Ms. Moore earned her Bachelor of Science in Radiological Sciences and Management, graduating Cum Laude and is currently pursuing her M.B.A. in healthcare. Working first as an MRI technologist, Ms. Moore’s strong work ethic and commitment to her field soon garnered her a promotion to MRI director at SimonMed. There, she expertly managed a team of technologists, ensuring the continuity of exceptional service delivery. She was also responsible for the scheduling of resources and services, delegation and management of MRI service resources to guarantee an efficient flow and optimal utilization of equipment and personnel.
Ms. Moore strongly believes in the importance of being a team player. “When everyone works together as a team, the day runs smoother. It creates a more organized atmosphere,” she says. “Teamwork can cut costs and improve the chance of making a profit.”
