I knew since I was a little girl that I wanted to work in the medical field. At first I wanted to be a doctor, but due to my moving around so much as a child and lack of caring for the school I was in my grades were terrible. I love science and have always had a knack for memorizing things. I became a CNA at 17 and a Med Aide at 18. When I was 21 I worked as a unit secretary/CNA floating between the ICU and progressive care units. This is where I found where I want to work. I love the adventure of nursing. There are some days I ask myself what have I gotten myself into. Then there are those days you are reminded that you are right where you’re meant to be. I can’t wait to go back to school to learn and do more.
