my dad had a heart attack and the next four years were spent in and out
of the hospital. I got my nursing degree 10 years after my elementary
education degree to follow that passion.”
“Nursing is education, they go hand in hand. My goal when interacting
with patients is to make sure they understand everything about their treatment.”

her family, bar-b-ques, hiking and boating.
