What is your favorite quote or motto?

"By doing what you love you inspire and awaken the heart of others"  

What is your favorite part about your job?

Being able to experience life being brought into the world. Seeing the excitement and joyfulness on the family’s faces when their loved one has been born. 

What is your dream job/career?

I would like to be a Registered Nurse in a NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit). 

What’s your advice for getting into your career field?

Never give up. If you work with anyone in the field you are aiming for, ask them for advice and what they did to get where they are. But remember, the same path doesn't always work for everyone, so do what works for you. 

What do you like about working in healthcare?

Being able to help and care for people. 

Why did you choose your career?

I have always wanted to be a nurse since I was a little girl, but once my great-grandma got sick and I helped my aunt take care of her, I knew that Nursing was right for me. I knew I wanted to help people who are unable to do things for themselves and help them get better, so they can go back to their everyday lives. Or give them the comfort and care they need when no one else can do it for them.
