I actually started in the medical field when I was 17. I started as an EMT, then Respiratory Therapist, and then Nursing. I have always worked in the Critical Care Areas. I loved the one one care I could give to my patients and meet their families. It is always a good feeling when you can brighten someones day. A touch, a kind word, a back rub, or just a conversation. I also worked for the states. During that period I deployed to areas after the hurricanes. Helping those in need is a reward all by itself. I am a VERY compassionate person. I enjoy helping those in need. I have been on both sides, as a patient and healthcare worker. I made it a point to go that extra mile, as I would want one to do for me. A small "Thank You" from a patient is a great reward. Helping others is what I do best. Some people just do the motions, well, my heart goes into it. I have been blessed to help so many and I hope I was able to bring some cheer, comfort, or a smile to patients and family members. My body is getting worn out so now I work for a Veterans Clinic. This is my way of Thanking all our vets for what they have done for this country.
