Every Story Matters
“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’ve always been interested in the body, because I think it’s a magnificent organ. Most importantly, when you’re given a body, you need to take care of it and understand that. It’s so magnificent. As I started to explore different parts of it and how it worked… it just became more fascinating. That’s why I came into the nursing field.”
“Although life in the NICU comes with many emotional challenges, being able to observe each baby, discovering their unique temperament, and responding to their individual needs - the challenge is well worth it. I get to watch newborns heal and parents gain this confidence to be healthy guides for their children.”
