Sylvia Herrick, a retired nurse, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Health Care Providers for dedication, achievements, and leadership in the field of health care.
Specialized in public health nursing, Ms. Herrick provided more than four decades of professional experience to her role as the director of utilization and quality management for Children First Medical Group in Oakland, California, from 2001 until 2016. Long dedicated to helping those within her community, she previously served in high leadership roles with the East Bay Medical Network in Emeryville, California, and the Visiting Nurse Association and Hospice of Northern California. Ms. Herrick initially served in the field from the 1970s until the late 1990s as a public health instructor for San Francisco State University and two years with the Alameda Unified School District as a school nurse and health coordinator. She was also a consultant for Med-Power Resources and a public health nurse with the city of Minneapolis.
Ms. Herrick’s performance in the field was born of her academic journey, which began at the University of North Dakota, from which she earned a Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 1967. Following this accomplishment, she attended the University of Colorado and graduated with a Master of Science in public health nursing in 1970. She concluded her edification at San Jose State University, from which she received a school nurse credential in 1991, after which she undertook postgraduate coursework. Well qualified in her field, Ms. Herrick was certified as a professor in healthcare quality, health service and public health nursing, as well as a registered nurse in the state of California.
In accounting for her success, Ms. Herrick credits her love for the profession of nursing. She gravitated toward working with patients in their own homes, as well as with children, and has long considered her work a most laudable occupation for both men and women to pursue. Looking toward the future, Ms. Herrick hopes to be remembered as someone who worked to expand her horizons by working on behalf of her local community.
