ATTRACTION TO CAREER:

My sweet Nanny (grandmother) volunteered at a local hospital, and she always said I had the compassionate heart of a nurse. I took her advice, and knew from a young age I would be a nurse. I enrolled in UCA’s nursing program and had incredible teachers and mentors, many of whom I stay in close contact with even today.

SURPRISING FACT:

Growing up, I was an athlete. I do not love the spotlight, but I am very competitive. I played basketball for the Beebe Badgers and was named All-State many years ago. I may be sore the next day, but I can still shoot the ball with my kids.

LESSONS LEARNED DURING THE PANDEMIC:

Humans are resilient. I have watched my team and my kids adapt in amazing ways. At work, I witness a level of daily sacrifice, teamwork and compassion that seems incomprehensible. My kids have embraced changes in their schools with such maturity and poise.

FAVORITE PART OF YOUR JOB:

I am driven each day by knowing my team will improve the lives of our patients. It is my duty to ensure those providing direct patient care have the support and resources needed to do their jobs to the best of their ability.

REMEMBER ME FOR:

Kindness and positivity.
