‘Thanks to Skiff, my life will never be the same’


April 26, 2018

Lives are often saved by caregivers at Skiff. Sometimes, though, it’s the caregivers themselves who find their lives changed for the better because of Skiff.

Kaylin Dohman has been a nurse at Skiff for more than three years, and it was there she met the man who would turn out to be her soulmate.

Mike Browning is a firefighter and EMS worker who often made appearances in the Emergency Department where Kaylin did her shifts. “We worked with each other for six months and, other than patient reports, we never even spoke to each other!” Kaylin said. “It wasn’t until we found ourselves at the same party that Mike asked me for my number.”

That was on Oct. 16, 2015 ... and two years later, to the day, he asked her for something else: her hand in marriage.

“I owe my thanks to Skiff,” Kaylin said. “Without this hospital, I wouldn’t have met my future husband.”

The happy couple aren’t the only Skiff-associated faces who will be in the wedding party. Several members of Kaylin’s self-described “bride squad,” including her maid of honor and matron of honor, are fellow Skiff employees.

“My life is better for being part of the Skiff family,” Kaylin said.

“I’m so happy to work for this organization and serve alongside the fantastic Skiff staff.”
