I have been a nurse for quite a few years and have worked in various settings. Like other nurses, seeing my efforts benefit another is extremely satisfying. As a clinical instructor in the Adult Education program, I work with the CNA students as they learn and perfect the manual skills they will use in their careers as they give patient care. Some will use the CNA certification as a basis to pursue other degrees. I am proud of each student as they prepare to follow their particular career path.
At home, I love nature and animals, birds in particular, and am an avid gardener. I grow the offspring of the same flowers my grandmother grew before I was born.
