Ashley Dufault is a busy mom of three, with a long commute to and from work as an RN on the Inpatient Unit. She’s also RiverView’s Employee of the Month for June.
“I often get asked how I handle driving 50 miles each way to and from work, and every time I say it doesn’t bother me at all because I love where I work, and the biggest part of that is my exceptional co-workers,’’ shared Dufault, who lives near Argyle. ”Working for a place like RiverView where they have invested a lot into my training and education makes me want to give everything I can into every shift I work.’’
Dufault has worked at RiverView for three years on the Inpatient Unit; she sometimes works a float position in the Emergency Department when needed, as well. She is a graduate of NDSU and Northland Community and Technical College.
A Stephen native, Ashley, and husband Nick have three children: sons, Beckett (6) and Whitten (4), and daughter, Violette (4 months). They also have two dogs: Gunther and Ladybird and a cat named Camo.
Dufault spends most of her time with her family. She enjoys being outside and has a large garden and pumpkin patch that keep her busy. She also likes to spend time at the lake, fishing, shooting a bow and she deer hunts every fall.
Of her recognition, she stated: “Even being nominated for EOM is a huge honor. To receive EOM at a place like RiverView where there are so many great employees is amazing! I absolutely love my job and feel lucky to work at such a great hospital.’’
