The average adult has a high school education. I look for ways to provide the best patient education to this community. I have volunteered in Nicaragua where the patients barely had means to live by.

    What made you choose a career in nursing?

    I grew up with a missionary background where serving others less fortunate was the family motto. My parents dedicated their lives to improving the quality of life to destitute populations worldwide. My mother taught me that nursing was a noble career path that would result in touching the lives of others. Her unconditional love to perfect strangers in need inspired me to become a nurse.

    What motivates you at the start of each day?

    I wake up each morning to the opportunity to make a difference in the life on one person. If I am able to do that for two people I end my day with a smile. I know that by doing my best everyday I will inspire others to do so as well.  

     

    Attributes Success To:

    I see success as being prosperous.  I like the interactive, ongoing journey. I enjoy the challenge of being the best version of myself everyday. Being prosperous keeps the energy on raising up those around you that can barely stand on their own. I believe that success is short term and can happen overnight. Being prosperous is a journey over a lifetime.
