About Sarah

I enjoy helping others and if I can do something to help someone feel better or whatever it may be it makes me happy. I see over the years even the slightest attention and care can go such a long way. Seeing a smile and a thank you from a patient or family members is satisfying. I have had numerous personal one which I still wonder how I did it was graduate Nursing school with all the challenges thrown my way by my personal life with divorce, custody issues and doing all I can for my kids one which is disabled and the love of my life. I am currently studying for my Boards for RN license and currently working in a Pediatric ER and have for over a year now and love every day I am there. It is fast pace which I like. Have learned and seen many things, some sad and some rewarding.

I worked in several homes one with 2 individuals on hospice. I truly enjoyed that and it was a rewarding job for the individuals I cared for. Rate is neg
