Desiree Tubbs; Office Manager, CNA

Desiree

I have always dreamed of working for a family doctor.  I never dreamed that doctor would be my own brother.  Yes, Dr. Rial is my older and much wiser big brother. Although, I don’t have much memory of growing up with him as he is 13 ½ years older.  I thought that I would be a medical assistant or a nurse of some kind. I entered CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) school in 1992 and then went to work in Long-Term Care Facilities.  I have always enjoyed working with the elderly.  As a child, my brothers, sisters, and I would sing in care facilities about 4 times a year.  I worked as a CNA caring for the elderly until I moved to Washington state and chose to stay at home and care for my small children.  I was thankful to be able to stay home with my four small children, nurture them, and watch them grow.  I returned to work in 2002 for Goodwill Industries in Portland.  I was fortunate to obtain employment as a job coach for individuals with disabilities working in many of their retail stores.  This journey has been a great learning experience for me.  I moved around in their programs working in both their Alternative to Employment and their Production and Contracts programs.  I applied and eventually was given the opportunity to work as a Case Manager for all the Program Participants working in retail stores on the west side.  I even advanced to Case Manager II after a year.  Many times, they would be short handed on Case Managers due to job turnover.  I would get the opportunity to work with many of the participants at other Goodwill’s.  My favorite Goodwill to work with was the Gresham Goodwill.  I assisted with the relocation to the brand new building on Burnside in Gresham.  The store manager at the Gresham Goodwill and I worked together when she was the District Manager over the Westside. 

I currently live in Vancouver, but if I had to choose one place in Oregon to live and raise my family it would be Gresham, Oregon.

In 2008, as I was undergoing treatment from Dr. Rial for an auto accident, he offered me a job as his office Manager.  The training and education I received from Goodwill has finally paid off.  I accepted the position and Goodwill was kind enough to keep me on part time, so I can still work with the program participants.  I am learning a lot from my time here at Eagle Chiropractic & Massage Therapy about my body and nutrition.  However, implementing what I have learned is a whole other story.  I am thankful for this opportunity to use my skills in a more relaxed environment.  The new schedule has opened up more time for my family and for myself.  I know with all my heart that Dr. Rial serves his patients with his whole heart and is greatly elevated when he can use what he has been taught to heal others and help them heal themselves.  It takes both doctor and patient to complete the process.  I have found my ultimate place in the work force and will be here until I can’t any longer. Please come and visit.  I promise you will always be greeted with a smile and even bought’s of laughter.
