Meet LaShonda Washington

LaShonda is a Medical Secretary III and has been with us since April 2022. Her favorite part about her job is being multifunctional. “As the secretarial float I have to learn all the other scheduler and secretary job functions for when they’re not in office that day and/or week. I have learned a ton of new and useful job skills since coming on board.”

What do you do outside of work? family? hobbies? 

I have 3 of the most well behaved, awesome, phenomenal kids you could ask for! Jada- 19 full time college student at CHICAGO STATE UNIVERSITY, Jade -17 & CJ-10. I’m a sneaker head, I love jazzy kicks. I’m ALWAYS hanging out with my huge family. We’re very tight knit. I play pool, roller skate, swim, travel & read. 

What’s something that most people don’t know about you? 

I am a self taught freelance makeup artist. I have my own business, BeatItUpByShonda, LLC. I specialize in full glam, strip eyelashes and everyday makeup looks. 

Name some things you’d take to a deserted island.

My makeup & Bible. 

What is the best advice you’ve received and who was it from?

“Always document everything”, Gail Buchanon, BJC. This is one that has really stuck with me since i started with BJC in 2016 and to this day I use it daily in my professional career.
