“I take care of children with cancer and disorders of the blood. I think every day is really sort of a defining day. Children are very resilient even when they are very ill. You learn a lot from them and it’s very inspiring for me to be around every day. It’s always nice to get photos from people who are in college, photos of patients you’ve taken care of who now have children. To kind of be a part of their family.”
“I like kids and the friends I’ve made through Project SEARCH. I enjoy greeting customers at the gift shop, especially on Fridays because I love the weekend.”
