Name: Amy L. Sieracki
Company: Catholic Health
Title: Administrative Assistant
Why joined NYSW: The role of working women is evolving in response to a changing economy and the changing demographics of the workforce. I joined the Buffalo Niagara Chapter of NYS Women Inc.to enhance my career, and for my own personal and professional development, not only as an administrative professional but also as a working woman facing changes in the workforce and in the job market. I want to position myself to meet the changing expectations and responsibilities that go with my current role as a C-Suite level administrative assistant. Board members and senior executives require me to embrace new technology, and support and train as needed the other users within our organization. Professional communication and etiquette are also daily must-haves, and they too are evolving as digital communication outpaces face-to-face communication as the norm in our field. I expect face-to-face learning opportunities with colleagues and top-notch presenters will give me confidence and a solid toolbox to meet the demands of my current job, and also position me to advance not only within the healthcare system where I work but also within my chosen field.
Interesting Facts: Traveled to Scotland at age 5, again for my junior year of college, and hope to return there with my children so they can see where one branch of our family came from.

Bio: Proud lifelong resident of WNY. Thrilled to see the renaissance of Buffalo - new buildings, new businesses, new places to live and new faces and new neighbors moving here to WNY.
Present: I am currently an admin assistant to two senior leaders at Catholic Health. Located in the c-suite, I support the COO of an 8300-employee health system, and am also the virtual assistant to the VP Clinical Operational Effectiveness Team. I am also the board secretary for the board of directors that governs acute care, home and community based care, and long term care services.
Past: Before that I supported both the Chief Nursing Officer and the VP Mission Integration at Sisters Hospital (400 beds – 2 campuses). To work for people responsible for healing the body and the spirit was a great combination, and that combination and holistic approach is what makes me proud to work for Catholic Health.
