I consider myself a detail oriented person with a big heart. I had my first thought of wanting to be a nurse back in 1999 when my grandmother fell ill and I helped my mom as much as I could at the time when I was 15 , I saw how the nurses and the care staff attended to my grandmother it left a warm print on my heart, One of the last things I told her before her passing was, "I wanted to be a nurse and help other families as much as I could. I have learned so much since then about caring for others and even found myself assisting in emergency situations as a good Samaritan and although it took me almost 2 decades to finally go for the dream, life has taught me to not give up and eventually the calling has always been within me, I am now currently enrolled in nursing school, and I am expected to graduate April 2020. I currently hold a BLS certificate and i'm also a Certified Medical assistant. I have two beautiful boys who are 14 years apart and family togetherness is one thing I hold close to me.
