Why did you choose your profession? I chose my profession because I get to help people. I wanted a career that is challenging, interesting and makes a difference in the lives of others. I am a very caring person and I believe that is one of the biggest traits a nurse must-have. In addition, I genuinely love the feeling I get after a hospital shift knowing I saved someone's life is an indescribable feeling and I wouldn’t trade that for anything.
Biggest Inspiration: My mother is my biggest inspiration.
Current Passion Project: I am currently conducting my own research project.
Fun Fact 1: I am all about healthy eating and living a balanced life.
Fun Fact 2: I love to read! I make reading apart of my day no matter how busy I am.
Do you have any advice for others interested in entering your field? My biggest advice is to never give up on your dreams. There will be many times where you will fall and get hurt along the way, but know that as long as that fire burns within you it will get you places! Never take no for an answer and if you’re not at the finish line by the end of it all then change the game plan but believe in yourself that you will get there.
