Where are you from?
Why did you choose to work in health care?
My grandparents were both nurses and they would take me to work with them. I got to see the impact of good nursing and the difference they made in their patients’ lives.
What does a typical workday look like for you?
I listen to report from the previous shift with my team and prepare patient assignments for my team. I begin the day talking with patients and developing goals for the day. I am able to do nurse-led education and goal-setting with patients. I get to work with patients regarding their mental health and substance abuse.
What do you enjoy most about working at Pardee?
I feel the people at Pardee genuinely care about one another and the community we serve. This organization participates in community events and makes working here a gift.
What is a surprising fact about yourself?
I married my high school sweetheart.
