Brief summary of your nursing background
When I received my BSN, I worked in NICU for five years. When I received my MSN, I am currently and have been working as FNP for 4 1/2 years now.
What made you choose a career in nursing?
I was inspired to seek nursing as a career because of my father. My father is an Anesthesiologist and admiring the success in his medical career, inspired me to do the same.
As a FNP, I am very grateful, appreciative, and love to help my patients.
What Do You Attribute Your Success To?
I attribute my success to my parents for their support, example and encouragement they have given me throughout my nursing career. I truly enjoying working with my patients. 
What motivates you at the start of each day?
I truly enjoy going to work each day to help my patients get well in all aspects of their lives. Seeing my patients get better and are able to take care of themselves with their chronic conditions is a success for me.
How do you make a difference in the lives of your patients?
I always strive that my patients improve their overall health. By encouraging, educating, listening, respect, and letting them know I am here to help them.
