Q. What do you love about being a nurse?
A. I first became a nurse because I enjoyed helping patients and their families’ when they were most vulnerable. My nursing career has since evolved and allowed me the ability to grow professionally in a variety of environments. Ultimately, I have learned my passion is in nursing administration.
