INDEX

The simple answer is people.  After 30 years of life experiences, I have come to realize that I love helping people,  whether it be something concrete, as in completing a specific task, or a subtle gesture like giving someone a listening ear in an attempt to make their day a little better.  As the child of a nurse who is also a cancer survivor, I was able to witness the skills required to be a nurse. I also saw the small moments that are exchanged between the nurse and the patient that are equally important.  A smile or a touch on their hand at a difficult moment has the power of letting that patient know that they matter and that they are cared about.  All of my life experiences have led me to have a heart for connecting with and serving people.  I am able to do both through nursing and it is a great privilege.
