He also gained experience in the areas of gynecological surgery, oral maxillofacial and ENT surgery. It was in this setting that he learned the responsibilities and skills of being both a good scrub nurse and circulating nurse. It was also in this arena that he moved on to learn the skills and knowledge required to working in the anesthesia side of perioperative nursing, both pre- and post-op.

    Nineteen years later, Dunleavy is running the day to day operations of three cardiac operating rooms at Hoag Memorial, including their new hybrid OR.

"I pride myself on my ability to be flexible, combined with my passion of learning new things, and not being afraid to take a chance. This has lead me here to California and to my current position."

    Dunleavy has an Associate's Degree in Nursing as well as a BA in Health Studies.
