Linda Rockey's first experience at Mayo Clinic was in 1971, when her grandmother insisted that she come to Mayo Clinic for treatment of her worsening Crohn's disease. "It was a week that just changed my life," she says. Thirty years later Mayo neurosurgeon Dr. Fredric Meyer operated on Linda to repair a double aneurysm in her brain. In the video below, Linda describes how her life-changing experience as a Mayo Clinic patient led her to move to Rochester to become a Mayo employee so she could help serve patients:
As you can see, Linda's passion for Mayo Clinic and for helping our patients (and those who care for them) is obvious. It was a pleasure meeting her last week, and we look forward to her future contributions here on Sharing Mayo Clinic. Just as she enjoys helping first-time patients and their families find their way in the downtown Rochester campus, Linda will be sharing stories and observations as a regular contributor to this blog.
