Signallamp Spotlight features interviews with some of our talented and passionate team members.

This spotlight features, Corrin McAlarney.
1. Tell us a little bit about your role and a day in the life.
I am a key link connecting the patient and their provider to help manage the patient’s health between office visits. My role is to provide education, answer questions or concerns and relay any medical information over to the patient’s provider. Ensuring the very best patient care is my goal for each of my patients each day.
2. Why did you decide to do the work you are doing now?
I came to a point in my nursing care where I felt I was unable to provide the care my patients needed. Being a care manager at Signallamp gives me the opportunity to connect with my patients on a regular basis about their health as well as anything going on in the lives which may affect their health. During our conversations, we are able to discuss their diagnosis, medications and any concerns or questions regarding their health. I love the relationships I have built with my patients and hope to continue to be a resource as well as an advocate for them.
3 What’s your favorite thing about working at Signallamp Health?
Our TEAM. I am grateful to be a part of Signallamp’s nurse-centered approach to managing the chronically ill. I get to work alongside a team that is diverse in our roles but is always focused on providing optimal care for our patients.
What’s the most poignant lesson you’ve learned about seniors from working in senior care?
All the knowledge they have to share. They have experienced first-hand what others may have studied in history books. They have lived life and have a wealth of knowledge, advice, and some funny stories to pass down.
If all jobs had the same pay and hours, what job would you like to have?
A full-time yoga instructor. Along with nursing, I am also a Registered Yoga Instructor. Being able to promote health and wellness through a different outlet by encouraging students to tap into their movement and breath through their yoga practice is a gift.
What would be your ideal way to spend the weekend?
My husband and I are always up for an adventure. We love to travel and to be outdoors but also enjoy catching up on our favorite TV shows with some take out.
What are some small things that make your day better?
Kindness- holding the door for someone, saying hello, giving a compliment. A simple act of kindness can change someone’s whole day.
