Why did you become a healthcare provider?

I became interested in a career in healthcare, after spending time in the hospital as a teenager and receiving excellent care from the nurses.

What do you enjoy or find most fulfilling about caring for patients? 

I enjoy explaining things to patients, so they have a better understanding and decreasing anxiety and/or fear.

Do you have hobbies or a way you like to spend your time away from work?

On my days off I love to go hiking while listening to an audio book.

If you could be anything else, what would you want to be?

I have always been curious about the economy and how it works. I can picture myself doing something in finance.

Do you have children? If so, what are their ages?

I have 2 adult children and love spending time with them whenever I can.
