I began my nursing career in 2014, after I graduated from Chamberlain College of Nursing. I knew at a very young age that caring for others would be my calling. I chose nursing because I am compassionate, empathetic, caring, honest, loyal, and dedicated. These qualities come natural to me as I believe that my main purpose in life is to care for others. Most individuals describe me as self-less and hard working. I have cared for patients of all age groups. I truly believe one of the most important things we can do is to build ourselves back up, and come back even stronger.
