What do you like to do in your spare time?
I enjoy spending time with my family and my dog; going for walks or hikes in nature, going to the movies or out to eat. I also really enjoy spending time at home binge-watching a new TV show, swimming and barbecuing.
What are the top three items on your bucket list?
Lots of Travel! I would love to travel to Europe and go on a river cruise along with visits to Ireland, England, Spain, and France, and one day make a return visit to Disney World. I would also like to participate in a medical mission and a dream would be to open an animal rescue farm.
What is your idea of a perfect day?
My perfect day would include sleeping in and waking up to a beautiful view, followed by some kind of outdoor adventure, enjoying a great dinner with another spectacular view and then end the day relaxing watching a movie with my dog or sitting outside around a fire-pit enjoying great company.
If you had unlimited funds, what would you do?
There are so many things I would love to do with unlimited funds. However, the first thing I would do is buy both of my parents a new vehicle followed by paying off their homes.
They have both done so much for me in my life, that I would love to be able to give something back to them. I would also use these funds to fulfill my bucket list of items for travel and to purchase a large area of land to open the animal rescue farm and make my new home there. Once all of that was settled, I would donate to multiple research organizations for a wide variety of medical issues. It would also be amazing to help impoverished areas around the world and make a difference in the lives of so many by providing things such as medical care and housing.
Lastly, considering these funds are never ending, I would like to organize a scholarship fund for individuals seeking Master’s and Doctoral degrees, particularly in the medical field. As a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) student, I have found it more difficult to find and apply for scholarships, that I am considered qualified for, at this level of education. It would be great to make this dream more accessible to those seeking it.
