I always knew I wanted a career in Healthcare because apart from having a fascination with the sciences and the human body since my early days, I also had this great fear of not knowing what to do in an emergent situation, and was determined not to be that person! It was that drive that lead me in the direction of becoming a Registered Nurse.

I always wanted to work in the ER, but it intimidated me. I got my EMT license in 2013 and then immediately applied to a tech position. I was not hired immediately, because there were not any positions at the time, but I hung on for four months until something opened up. As soon as I got my RN license, I transitioned from an EMT to an RN.

In recent weeks, I have been reflecting and am proud of the way our team continues to weather the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic together. We began taking steps to prepare our facility before the virus was in our community. We implemented a robust emergency operations plan and executed it down to the final detail to keep our patients, providers, employees and community members safe. Every member of our team was ready to step up to the challenge and make our hospital even better. While we always maintain strict infection prevention protocols, we introduced new processes and procedures – such as having everyone in our facility wear a mask and screening all who enter for COVID-19 symptoms – to further reduce the spread. As life returns to a “new normal,” please know that we aren’t letting our guard down. You can have every confidence that we continue to take all possible precautions to help protect you when you come for care. We want you to feel comfortable coming to see us and not ignore any health concerns you may have in hopes the pandemic will end soon. Your health is important to us and we thank you, as always, for entrusting Memorial Medical Center with your care. It is our privilege to serve you.

The example was set for me by my family to always help others. My grandfather worked in healthcare as a pharmacist and my mother as a nurse. Maybe you could say it was in my blood. My motivation for my career in healthcare is seeing hope in the eyes of my patients as they have overcome some of the hardest days of their lives and being a part of that treatment is truly priceless.
