Helping other is something that I've always desired. For me, it isn't about money, it isn't just a career, it's about making a positive impact on the lives of others. To me, stna is making a difference in people lives that can never pay you back... that's the reward that makes my heart smile. By nature, I've always been understanding, respectful, compassionate, patient and a judgement-free individual. As a former employee at University of Cincinnati Medical Center emergency department, I challenge myself and put my skills to the test. By helping those of different ethnic backgrounds, different walks of life, people with very different personalities and this helps me constantly learn different ways to communicate. On a daily basis, I encountered crime victims, severely injured patients, mentally challenged patients, elders with terminal illnesses, substance abuse patients, and patients at their most vulnerable state etc., and when I walk in their room I am improving on ways to approach patients at their level of comfort. In my early life, I lost one of my sisters from complications of cerebral palsy. A little over 10 years later, I lost my mother to a massive heart attack and soon after my father had hip surgery, he then told me he had diabetes. Each of those moments in my early life, I was forced to come up with a solution to try and help others in any way possible. Obtaining a career in the medical field was the first step for me, medical assisting, stna, phlebotomy and now in Nursing school. I still have a long way to go and so much more to learn but this is where I am now.
