Annabeth Borg, now retired, has had more than 26 years of secretarial experience that involved working in several fields. Her early background included working for the New York State government and in the private legal sector prior to taking a 12-year hiatus to raise a family. After rejoining the work force, she worked briefly in private industry, followed by 21 years as a medical secretary at the Nassau County Medical Center in East Meadow, NY. During most of that period she served as secretary to the Chairman and Program Director of the Department of Medicine. In this capacity, Annabeth became familiar with, amongst other things, the hiring process for new house staff, both American graduates and international medical graduates. There were approximately 100 house staff in the Department of Medicine. Annabeth estimates that she assisted in the recruitment of between 500-600 house staff during her tenure at the hospital.
