I've been a nurse for 24 years. My experiences range from the OR, Sub Acute Rehab, and post-op Ortho/Neuro/Stroke nursing to LTC, Hospice and Home Care. I believe the qualities that make me an excellent nurse and caregiver are compassion, empathy, humor, experience, and creativity. My maternal grandmother was an RN in a small town in Maine. I spent my summers growing up with her and my grandfather, a barber, learning what they knew of life in the Maine woods. What an amazing way to grow up! I know that for every person I care for, every life story I hear, every family I comfort...I become a better version of the person, the nurse, the daughter, the friend and the mother I am meant to be. To be a nurse and caregiver was woven into my soul before I was born. It's who I am.
