Raquel Robinson has been working at Waterbury Hospital for 20 years. She is a Patient Care Technician in the Intensive Care Unit where she works closely with nurses and physicians. During the height of the COVID 19 pandemic, the ICU was full of extremely sick patients fighting for their lives. Robinson and her colleagues came to work each day and faced the devastation of the pandemic without fail.
For Robinson, going for a run after work was like therapy. She found solace in being alone and decompressing. Now, she has a half marathon under her belt and is training for the NYC marathon in November.
