Regina Finan - Medical Secretary

Carer at Nurse On Call



Current location


Work category

Admin and Clerical



I am an enthusiastic and friendly person who enjoys meeting new people.

I have experience in many different fields of work, such as Carer, Sales Assistant, Receptionist and Bartender, but am currently completing a Medical Secretary course with Pitman Training in Dublin.

I hope to find work as a Medical Secretary as it's in a field that I have a lot of experience in but in a role I think is hugely underrated by most people.

I've been an active member of the Roscommon Civil Defence since 2007 and have a good grounding in First Aid and CFR, as well as AED training.

I love theater and being involved in productions (especially musicals).
