Since being trained as a registered nurse, raising 3 children, and being employed in various settings, I've realized I gain much satisfaction in helping individuals mature in their abilities, overcome obstacles, and be the best they can be. In any endeavor I also greatly enjoy the realm of design and creativity, organization, and teaching. My experience over the years has been as an in-home RN (various ages from seniors to pediatrics with trachs), hospital RN (assistant head nurse on a 40-bed skilled nursing facility), as an art tutor, and raising 3 children (challenges of developmental delays, ADHD, speech and reading delay, and memory retention issues). The challenges encountered during these years became a valuable life teacher with applicability toward all that would come thereafter: development of an ongoing work ethic headed by honesty and trustworthiness, training individuals for maximum independence (while being cognizant of impacting health issues and their effect within daily life), ability to interface with people of many ages and ability levels, overseeing and organizing schedules and completion of tasks, establishing goals, helping as necessary with the daily tasks of living and medical concerns; recognizing that all people, especially those encountering a hurdle, will develop and respond most profoundly in an environment of value, respect, and nurturing with help as needed. Enjoyable hobbies include piano, design, art, and organization.
