Jan HartWhat transplant work do you do?

My transplant social work career started in 1992. Currently I am a heart transplant and MCS social worker, working with pre and post patients, primarily in the out-patient setting. I am also the ILDA for renal living donors and previously worked with pre and post renal transplant patients and families.

What is your experience with STSW?

I joined STSW in 1992, three months after starting as a transplant social worker, and attended the STSW conference in St. Louis. The session for new workers was the perfect introduction for a newbie. The camaraderie among those attending helped me know this was a group I could count on! I attended many conferences after that and continued to feel this was my “home base” for the niche world of transplant social work. I joined the Board in 2008 as bylaws chair and learned how the Society functions, was treasurer in 2010 (and survived!), then agreed to run for Vice President in 2011 as I was inspired about the growing mission and vision of the Society and its dynamic leadership. I believe wholeheartedly that we should continue our mission: “to inspire and support our membership” and would be proud and excited to place my time and dedication for the coming years with OUR society.

What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?

Goals and realities aren’t always the same, yet I’m still hoping to learn to play golf. I am doing better about walking more frequently and enjoy cooking (on weekends). Just found a great peach cobbler recipe but it’s not calorie friendly. Husband Mike and I downsized our home this year and live closer to our adult daughters, sons-in-law, and grandkids so I have a toddler seat in my car again!
