About Sarah

I have always had a passion for helping people. I always knew I wanted to be a health care provider. I received my CNA license at the age of 17. I took time away from the field to raise my 3 children while they were very young, however. It was very important to me to be able to be with them full time. Especially as my middle child was born with a severe disability. So I postponed my career goals at least until all were school age. Upon caring for my mother this past year as she battled terminal lung and brain cancer. I became overwhelmingly inspired to return to nursing. She was admitted to a Hospice facility with \"days\" to live. It was the experience together at this facility I became very inspired seeing the level of care my mother was able to receive in her last days. I was also highly appreciative for the care they staff, and facility gave to my entire family during the darkest days my family had ever experienced. They answered all our questions honestly while maintaining professionalism, but doing it in a way that was comforting and empathetic. My mother was able to pass after 4 days with dignity, and reasonably pain free. They were respectful after her passing and let us take all the time we'd like, and handled my mother with utmost respect cleaning her, and preparing her for the funeral home. They even provided some grief counseling for me about a month later. It was a life changing experience being a part of her final moments, but the caregiver in me couldn't stop thinking about how appreciative I was to this staff. In such a heartbreaking situation was this ray of light calling me back to health care. I wanted to show others, and their families the kind of complete care I was given. I wanted to make a difference and help best I can other families in similar situations get through it a best as can be possible.
