What is your favorite quote or motto?

"If you want to live an extraordinary life, stop asking for permission.  Just do what you want to do."

What is your dream job/career?

Ultimately, I want to become a Physician's Assistant.  Maybe surgical PA or emergency medicine PA. I haven't exactly decided what I want to specialize in. 

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

Keep learning, keep exploring.  The medical field has so many positions and titles. I would have never thought of becoming a PA until the providers that I work with kept nudging me about the idea.

What do you like about working in healthcare?

The sense of community. From all the sites that I have worked in, CCC, MedSurg, and now the North H Center, every staff member has been so welcoming. We all have the common goal of providing patient/customer care.
