Why did you select your profession?
For the many opportunities there are to make a difference.
Where do you see yourself professionally in 10 years?
I see myself at Newport Hospital. … [It] has been very good to me and my family in the past, and so I feel an obligation to be the best that I can be at this facility.
What’s the best career advice you’ve ever been given?
I was told by my first nursing leader to continue pursuing my education at a young age to allow me more opportunities in the future.
What advice would you give your 22-year-old self?
Work hard, but enjoy the good times.
What is your favorite escape or hobby?
I enjoy plenty of activities, but my favorite would be playing or watching sports such as baseball, basketball, football and hockey.
How do you keep a work-life balance?
Raising an 8-year-old son is not easy, so once I pick him up from day care every day, I devote time to him.
What one thing in your professional life would you like a do-over on?
I would not change anything professionally as it has made me the leader that I am today. •
