I knew from an early age that I wanted to have a career in healthcare. I initially wanted to become a pediatrician, but as I got older and advanced through college I knew emergency medicine was the route I wanted to pursue. As an undergraduate student, I worked as a student nurse in a level one trauma facility. Upon graduation, I immediately found my place as a new RN in a much smaller, but busy ER.
In 2015, my family's life drastically changed. My paternal grandmother died in April, my brother was involved in a life altering accident in August and my paternal grandfather died in November. Needless to say, these losses and experiences have made me realize the importance if creating lasting memories while loved ones were still with us. In January 2017, my brother and only sibling unexpectedly passed. The loss and void that I felt was unbearable, yet I found peace in the fact that the night before, the last words he heard from me were "I love you".
Precious Memories Hospice Homecare, LLC is a place where we take pride in creating lasting memories that will be cherished for a lifetime. My grandmother suffered from Alzheimer's Disease, my grandfather from Dementia and my brother from a Traumatic Brain Injury. The ‘precious memories’ of my loved ones are what keeps me motivated and is the inspiration behind the birth of this agency. With this passion as the driving force coupled with my nursing expertise, Precious Memories will ensure that your loved ones receive exceptional care customized to their individual needs.
