Amidst the winds of change, Trisha Richardson has remained steadfast in her care for patients and nursing duties. She has worked the past 30 years at the doctor's office located on Main Street in Trumann, which is now NEA Baptist Clinic. Though the building has been renovated, she has cared for patients in the same three exam rooms since the clinic opened its doors 30 years ago on Aug. 5, 1985. During her tenure, she has watched major technology changes, served under three different physicians, and even stayed when NEA Baptist purchased the clinic from Dr. Mark Brown. "I've enjoyed it here the past 30 years," Richardson said. "We've gone through some good and bad times. There have been a lot of changes, but I've enjoyed working with great co-workers and a great manager. Most of the people that work here are like a family."
