The human body homes the person. Each person is an individual with goals, dreams, rights and needs. When sickness and illness inevitably happen, I advocate for the person. This is through acknowledging the intricacies of their ailment, their health and their individual life. When we combine those intricacies with ongoing medical treatments, we aid in getting them to live the life they desire.
From childhood, I knew I was going to be a nurse. I wanted to help others, and what brought me value was by being valuable to others. I felt I am valuable because of what I give, not what I take. As I actually got into the profession, I loved the expansion of learning that it forced me into. I’m excited to be part of the transformational profession of health care in my lifetime.
I have four young kids who absolutely bring craziness and passion in life. They are often my greatest teachers.
Beyond caring for patients, I enjoy running and hiking. I like home projects and crafting. I enjoy being around people, but in solitude I love reading history and philosophical books. I’ve taken a couple of medical trips to Haiti and Mexico, and I hope to get more involved in aiding the underserved communities and countries.
