My mom is a nurse practitioner, and my dad works in radiology. I grew up
around medicine. I’ve always hated seeing people sick, and I wanted
a way to help them feel better and heal. I got a degree in nursing, and
then later, a medical mission trip to Honduras motivated me to return
to school. Being a nurse practitioner enables me to help patients more.
I love working with children because they are fun and so tough. They come
in with awful colds but will still be smiling and playing. I also love
watching them grow up from infants to high schoolers.
