We’re so proud to work with each and every one of our staff members here at Donor Alliance. In our Staff Spotlight, we like to take a minute to let you learn more about who we are and why we work at Donor Alliance.
Name: Noël Stout
Position: Family Support Coordinator
Years at Donor Alliance: 5
Why you chose to work at DA: I had previously worked in the Family Services Department at Statline/MTF as a Tissue Donor Coordinator and was aware of Donor Alliance’s stellar reputation in the community for caring for families and honoring the gift of donation. It’s been an honor to help save lives, knowing that people in our community are being directly impacted.
Why do you like working at DA: I love working with such dedicated co-workers, knowing that they understand viscerally what it means to do this challenging work. I have developed very close relationships and feel the support every day from my co-workers.
What does donation and transplantation mean to you: Donation and transplantation is the ultimate gift. The true generosity and altruistic kindness of strangers speaks to the best parts of human nature. I am fulfilled and touched every day I have the honor to do this work.
Any direct connection to donation and transplantation: I have a good friend who suffered multiple severe complications during a pregnancy, the result of which ended in her having multiple amputations and requiring dozens of skin grafts. Those grafts prevented life-threatening infections and saved her life. 6 years later, she is the proud and happy momma of two beautiful little girls. Her life was saved through tissue donation.
What do you enjoy doing when you’re not working (hobbies and such): Spending time with my wonderful boyfriend and sweet little puppies is my favorite hobby! We enjoy great restaurants, watching movies, and traveling all over our beautiful state. We are excited to be going on a “Bucket List” adventure in 2 weeks and travel to Indonesia for a good friend’s wedding.
