About David

I am a 48yr old male professional going back into my passion, which is nursing with compassionate and dignified care. I had stepped away from my passion for quite a few years, due to caring for my father who suffered a long term illness which was MS. I felt that I could not carry on in the profession after his death, being that I was unable to cope with his loss. I re-purposed my career into a very successful postion where I resided for over a decade. I realized that it was not where my heart was at, and that I had a void in my heart, it was as a care giver, it is and will always be my passion to care for others. There is no reward greater than that of humanity service.
