Rich Scinto

TRUMBULL, CT — When times are tough, heroes emerge. We all know someone who's making a difference right now as we live through unprecedented times. Here at Patch, we've launched an initiative to help recognize these everyday heroes.

Claudia Montoya was nominated by her coworker Katie Tighe.

Is the nominee considered an “essential worker”?:
Yes

What does the nominee do for work?:
Nuvance -Norwalk Hospital

Why do you believe the nominee should be recognized or honored?
She’s a great Pediatric Nurse but back in April- Pediatric’s was closed and reopened as adult unit . She has graciously accepted the challenge of heroically battling covid-19 in the adult arena. A very different world than caring for children.

What’s one thing you want everyone to know about your hero?:
She is amazing and has the biggest caring heart.
