Who or what inspired you to pursue your profession?

My mother was my main inspiration to pursue nursing.

What is your favorite memory from working with us?

The office staff. They are incredibly helpful, respectful, compassionate, understanding, trusting, and honest. I would say more, but that could turn into a book.

What is one piece of advice you would give to your younger self in this field?

Continue to strive for your goals. Your age does not determine when you stop making your dreams become a reality.

In what ways has healthcare changed throughout your career?

Healthcare has taught me prioritization, a continuation of medical knowledge on focused patient care, communication, and observation of details. It has enhanced my critical thinking skills and application of the nursing process effectively for patient-centered care.

How have your patients inspired you?

My patients have inspired me wholeheartedly by providing me with encouraging words and knowing that I have made a difference in their lives.

What do you find most rewarding about your job?

The most rewarding part of my job is getting up every morning to make a difference in someone else’s life.

What keeps you motivated when times are tough?

To be honest, the tough times that I go through keep me motivated. When I know there is a struggle throughout life or work, I reverse it into a positive outcome.

What skills do you think are important to possess to be successful in your profession?

Skills are very important when it comes to nursing, but I would suggest if skills were a weakness, continue to enhance them. No certain skill will make you successful in nursing. Acknowledging and knowing all skills will make you successful in your nursing profession.

Tell us what makes you unique! What do you enjoy doing outside of work? Any hobbies or interests?

I’m unique because of my personality and I will be the first to obtain my RN Licensure and the first to obtain my High School Diploma in my immediate family. I enjoy relaxing, shopping, dancing, traveling and reverting to being a kid (only during Halloween). As of now, I’m currently enrolled in school for my RN with the intent to graduate in May 2021. It’s been a struggle, but I’m almost to the finish line!

What three traits define you?

Loyalty, Devoted, and Compassionate.

What are the biggest lessons you have learned while working during the COVID-19 pandemic (personally, professionally, etc)?

Hand hygiene is the most efficient way to prevent the spread of anything. Everyone should value their gift of being able to live.
