"I believe that patients have the right to make informed decisions regarding choices that affect their health. Ultimately patients make better choices the more information they are provided. As a healthcare provider, it is my responsibility to provide them with the information necessary to make those informed decisions."

Why I Became A Nurse
"I think some people are born with a natural passion for caring for others, and I believe this is what led me to nursing. I believe serving patients is about more than just caring for the illness, but about serving the entire patient and family system in a holistic manner. I come from a large extended family, and I want my patients to feel that I care for them as I would for any member of my own. The impact a healthcare provider can have on one patient or family's life is a tremendous honor with a great responsibility."
