What got me interested in pursuing a career in the health care field:
My grandmother was a nurse and my father worked in healthcare – in one way or another – for most of his adult life. I grew up listening to stories about the joys and trials they experienced. I would accompany my father to work sometimes and watched first-hand the nurses and physicians caring for other’s in a time when it was needed the most. These experiences instilled in me a desire to serve others in a similar capacity.
I enjoy gardening, reading, sculpting, drawing, photography, and spending time with my loved ones in the beautiful Pacific NW.
