What made you choose a career in nursing?
When my daughter was terminally ill and spent a lot of time in the hospital, I saw the compassion and caring the nurses gave her and I wanted to give back. Due to financial circumstances, I was not able to go to school after her passing, however, my grandmother, who believed in me, left me the means to go for my dream when she passed. So in 1999, that is what I achieved my LPN. Since then I obtained my ADN, now I am completing my BSN, with plans to go on for my Masters Degree in Nursing Leadership and Education.
What Do You Attribute Your Success To?
I very much enjoy my career path as a nurse, helping and caring for others; making a difference in other peoples lives. I also have a very supportive family and friends that appreciate and encourage my dreams and the work that I do.
What motivates you at the start of each day?
Knowing that I enjoy going into work every day as much as I like going home. I go in knowing I can make a difference, not only in my residents/patients lives but also in the lives of the families as well as my staff.
How do you make a difference in the lives of your patients?
Compassionate caring. Getting to know them as individuals. They know I am genuine and I care about them as a person. I want them to be happy and feel cared for/about.
