I grew up in the restaurant business alongside my parents and siblings, and nursing was what my mother always wanted me to study. It wasn’t until she became ill with cancer and I nursed her until her passing that I realized it was my calling.

I get asked why I became a nurse so much, and it is never a one word, or short answer. So I will do my best; It’s a tough job, definitely not for the weak of heart. I genuinely love people. It is so rewarding to help care for someone.

I did not find Nursing, Nursing found me, I believe my Mom being a caregiver started my path to serving others. Having young children and knowing how my parents struggled I had a deep desire to change my path and the path of others. Becoming an RN has been life-altering.
