About Talaya

Greetings to all! My name is Talaya Duncan. I have a lot of experience in healthcare. I really enjoyed what I do. I started when I was young taking care of my grandmother. She always stated I will be a great nurse one day., which I know I will. In conversations I may have with others or employers I will always say you must have a passion for people to serve people. A passion to care and support for someone else other than yourself. It is vitally important in this industry. This is something I live by and do my best to provide the best care for each of my patients I encounter
