Souby George (email@example.com)
Souby graduated with her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from MGR University, India in 1997. She started working at UTMB in 2002. She earned my Masters of Science in Nursing with a focus on Healthcare System Management from Loyola University, New Orleans in 2011. She lives in Galveston with her husband and two children. During her 15 year nursing career, she has worked in many specialty areas but her passion is cardiology. Currently, she works 12-hour night shifts as a nurse clinician on the postpartum unit.
Initiatives she has led include starting a Women, Infants and Children Monthly Newsletter to improve communication among the staff working within the department. As co-chairperson of the 2012 Nurses Week activities, we expanded the festivities to include all health system staff. She also serves as the leader of the unit based retention and reward committee.
She currently serves as co-chair of the Night Nursing Council. Our goal is to create a healthy work environment for our night shift workforce at UTMB. Partnering with the Employee Health Promotion team, we conducted several health promotion events and are planning more in the future. She believes an engaged staff with healthy choices will give us a work force filled with high morale and positive energy. She is also a member of the Retention, Research Council and Coordinating council.
She would like to serve as the voice for the employees especially those working the night shift. She looks forward to the day when our dreams come true; a quiet space for staff to relax and rejuvenate during their break along with affordable, and healthy food choices for the night shift employees.
She would like to thank all my colleagues who believed in her and took their time to vote. She is very proud to be a part of this council.
