Whether it’s a business or community involvement, what inspires you?

I am inspired by my day to day interactions with my patients. Sometimes the smallest of patients can have the greatest impact. It amazes me to see a community come together to support and love a family during the most difficult times. I am truly humbled to be a nurse.

 

What aspirations do you have for yourself?

I want to continue growing as a bedside pediatric nurse. Eventually, I plan to further my education by getting a Master’s in Nursing Education and continue with my love for teaching as well.

 

What is your favorite way to give back to the community?

I think the best way to give back to your community is by having a mindset of putting others before yourself, which I am lucky enough to be able to do through my career. I also love to participate with fundraising events such as the Heart Walk, Walk to End Alzheimer’s and March of Dimes.

What is your favorite thing about the Ocala area?

This is home. I was born and raised here. Ocala is filled with good people. I love the opportunities that Ocala has to offer while still have that small town feel.
