If I could have one superpower, I would choose Empathic Power Randomization: the ability to gain random powers based on one’s emotions. Emotions are such a powerful part of who we are, and I think being able to express them in tangible superpower ways would be awesome.

LaShandra McLaughlin, DSW, LCSW, AHPSW-C

Program Manager

If I could have one superpower, it would be Power Bestowal: the ability to bestow powers or jump-start latent powers. I choose this superpower because nurturing people’s gifts and hidden potential creates a constellation of magic that expands far beyond what can be reached by an individual.

SOPHIA PARASCHOS, MD

Sophia Paraschos, MD

Pediatric Medical Director

I turned to my trusted universe of Harry Potter for an answer. Apparition (the power to disappear and reappear in a different place instantly) would significantly cut down on time to be where we are most needed in the most timely fashion – a truly useful power in our line of work.

KRISTEN ADELMAN, BSN, RN, CHPPN

Kristen Adelman, BSN, RN, CHPPN

Team Lead

If I could choose a superpower, I would choose Infinite Energy and the ability to transmit that energy to others. If my energy were limitless, I would never become tired or depleted, and I could share that with anyone I encountered – especially caregivers.

ZACH NUSBAUM, M.DIV.

Zach Nusbaum, M.Div.

Pediatric Palliative Care Specialist – Preceptor

If I could have a superpower, I would choose Realm-Walking, the ability to easefully travel to (and fully adapt to) any realm or dimension in creation. There is such an abundance of mystery, and I would like to be able to explore it without restraint and bring back some of that magic and wonder to this place where we are.

There are many superpowers that I would love to possess, and they all bring with them advantages, but I decided on the superpower of Omni-Lingualism. With this superpower, I could instantly learn, speak, and understand any language fluently. If I had this power, I could communicate with any family regardless of where they are from or what language they speak. Until I acquire this superpower, I will continue to use interpreters.

If I got to choose any superpower, I would have to pick telepathic communication. It would be so cool to know what people are thinking and/or feeling, without even saying a word! Plus, it would make it much easier to know how to help family, friends, and patients when they need it.

I would choose the superpower Translate Animal Communications because animals amaze me, and humans have much to learn from other animals.

SIENA BUCKLEY, MSW, LCSWA

Siena Buckley, MSW, LCSWA

If I had a superpower, I would want it to be teleportation so that I could travel the world, see places I have always wanted to see, and visit people that I don’t get to see often enough.

Louisa Walter

Louisa Walter, MSW, LCSW

Family Support Specialist

If I could have any superpower it would be telepathy. I’d love to be able to understand the thoughts/wishes/worries of others without having to rely on traditional means of communication. With this superpower, I also wouldn’t have to worry about language barriers and could communicate with people from anywhere!

RC Collman, MSW, LCSW

Family Support Specialist

If I could have any superpower it would be the ability to travel within memories, books, and movies! I would love to visit my favorite characters and see their worlds.

MJ STEELE, MD

MJ Steele, MD

My superpower would be shape-shifting – the ability to turn into another form. Imagine getting to be a blue whale or a baboon or a kangaroo for the day! The possibilities are endless.

On-Call Team

ZACH CARLETON, RN

Zach Carleton, RN

On-Call Nurse

I’d go with…the ability understand and speak any language fluently – Omni-Lingualism – because it would make traveling a breeze!

MIA DEL MOORE, BSN, RN

Mia Del Moore, BSN, RN

On-Call Nurse

My superpower would be time travel—I have always felt as though I should have been born in the 70’s and I love that funky era. Also—this way I could meet loved ones from the past and future that I have always wanted to know.

PAMELA MCDONALD, MSN, RN

Pamela McDonald, MSN, RN

On-Call Nurse

My superpower would be unlimited access to sound waves so I can hear music and voice from any culture in human history.

KRISTEN BALBONI, BSN, RN

Kristen Balboni, BSN, RN

On-Call Nurse

I would choose elastigirl abilities (super stretching) because then I would always be within reaching distance of a snack. It would also be helpful to reach the top shelves without having to climb on things.

Jaclyn McKinley

Jaclyn McKinley, RN

On-Call Nurse

My superpower would be self-duplication. This would allow me to be productive, have fun, be with family, and sleep ALL AT THE SAME TIME!

Ryan Fulcher, RN

On-Call Nurse

My desired superpower is the ability to fly.

Adriana Aleman-Crane, RN

On-Call Nurse

My superpower would be mind reading. This would impact not only how I react to a person or situation but could also be used as an advantage to help diffuse conflicts.

Bereavement Team

BRECKLYN WALTERS, MSW

Brecklyn Walters, MSW

Pediatric Bereavement Specialist

If I could have any superpower I would choose astral projection, the ability to traverse different planes of consciousness and existence through out of body experience. I’d love to access and share teachings and new ways of perceiving outside the conventions of time and space.

ABBY YUAN

Abby Yuan, MSW

Pediatric Bereavement Specialist

If I could have a superpower, I would love to be able to manipulate time. I think we’ve all had our own experiences with regret whether that be wishing we did or said something different. Also, wanting to relive certain moments in our lives with the people we love.

MARQUIA GREEN, MTS

Marquia Green, MTS

Pediatric Bereavement Specialist

If I had a superpower, it would be super senses, which allows me to heighten my senses when necessary to see, hear, feel, smell, and taste what’s not easily recognizable. It would allow me to capture the deeply rooted things that have yet to come to the surface and give me the advantage of finding ways to help others heal.

Clinical Support Team

KELSEY SCHIMMEL, RN

Kelsey Schimmel, RN

Resource Coordinator

If I could have one superpower, it would be Multi-Location. As the mom of three young kids who is attempting to work from home, it would be amazing to be able to devote my full attention to one task at a time as opposed to doing three to four at a time!

ALLIE LINDAHL, MS, BSN, RN, CPN

Allie Lindahl, MS, BSN, RN, CPN

Data Analyst

My superpower would be Mind Reading – I could help people address concerns they didn’t know how to bring up, and I could break up my kids’ arguments before they even start!

LAUREN MEREDITH, MA

Lauren Meredith, MA

If I could have a superpower, it would be to read other people’s minds. I want to listen to people’s true thoughts.
