What got me interested in pursuing a career in the health care field? I have always had a love and fascination with anatomy and how the human body works as well as a deep-seated love for caring for people. Healthcare seemed like the logical and perfect professional fit.
My interests/hobbies: I enjoy sports with football being my favorite; traveling with my husband and discovering quaint towns and trying local cuisine. I also enjoy hiking, kayaking, fishing and spending time with my 4 “adult” children.
