"I find joy in being with patients and families at their most vulnerable times and making a difference in their lives. I know when someone needs to talk or needs me to simply keep quiet company. Guiding patients helps to ease their discomfort and uncertainty. I am their voice and advocate when they may not be in the place to ask tough questions.

I am a positive and upbeat person who can make my colleagues laugh, but I can also recognize when a colleague may be struggling. I like to send out motivational messages to my colleagues, and I’ll even surprise them with flowers or sweet treats."
