Submitted by Lora Graetzer, FAADOM, Baltimore/Annapolis, MD Chapter Vice President
The AADOM BAM Tribe extends our most excited CONGRATULATIONS TO JANE WALKLEY! At the 2022 AADOM Conference Jane was surprised with the very first “Leave the Ladder Down” award. This term was coined after a heartfelt speech given by Theresa Duncan at the 2021 Conference during her acceptance of the Lifetime Achievement Award. During this speech Theresa described how each of us should pass along our knowledge, expertise, and professionalism to the new generation of practice administrators coming into the industry.
Jane exemplifies all these qualities on a consistent basis. She lives the AADOM mantra that “You’re not alone”. Jane opens herself to anyone who needs guidance or advice. More often than not, she has responded to most inquiries, conflict, or dilemma posted on the Dental Excellence page with a positive response. She will take her personal time to email, chat and mentor you. In her own office, Jane radiates positivity, comradery, and an unending commitment to her craft & patients. Each one of us should be more like Jane; Challenge yourself to lend a hand, help someone up, and show them the way.
Congratulations Jane on your most deserved award!
