“I grew up on a tiny island, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and I never envisioned myself in my current circumstance. When I was younger, a family member of mine became gravely ill. It made me feel helpless not knowing how to help”.
“I knew I would not like to be in that situation again, so I wanted to learn everything I could and that led me to nursing. I believe in the profession, and I love the ability to be there for someone when they are vulnerable and need someone to help them make life-changing decisions”.
“When I meet a patient, I always ask family members to tell me a bit about them as a person because I seek to understand the uniqueness in everyone. What I love most about my job is the ability to inspire people. I mentor others formally and informally, whether it is supporting new grads in their journey, or having development discussions with other supervisors”.
“The most rewarding thing for me is to help someone be the best they can be and hear that they are happy. I want to be an inspiration to my children by showing them with hard work and dedication, you can achieve anything.”
