My Family: My fiance, Marcus, and I own a home in Norfolk and are a proud military family. Marcus has been on 4 deployments. I am originally from Lancaster, Pennsylvania; but moved here 4 years ago when Marcus was re-stationed. We have two huskies: Lilly, who is 1 year old, and Max, who is 5 years old (pictured below).
My greatest accomplishment: I would have to say making it through nursing school. It was one of the most challenging things I’ve ever done! I graduated from the Pennsylvania College of Health Sciences before I moved to Hampton Roads. It is a passion of mine to ensure my patients receive high-quality care and feel that “personal touch” that is so often missed in today’s typical, busy healthcare system.
No one wants to be “just a number”. We all want to be treated as individuals, which at a private medical practice (like Family Medicine Healthcare) is much easier to do.
Someone who I greatly respect and why: I greatly respect military families (especially, now that I am part of one and can understand the commitment it takes). I admire and appreciate the work of the non-profit, military organizations (like Wounded Warriors and Operation Homefront) that support our troops and families.
In another life, I would be: A flamingo – because I would be tall and skinny and able to hang out on a warm beach all day!
If I ever played hooky, I would_____: You could find me with Marcus and the 2 huskies on a beach somewhere!
