In 2012 I quit my job with the Department of Justice because my husband and I were doing therapeutic foster care at that time and we had taken in a young girl who had very high needs. I made the decision to stay home and care for her which continued for more than six years. When she left our care I made the decision to go back to school and pursue a career in nursing. I thoroughly enjoyed the two weeks I worked at mercy during my clinicals and I believe I could be an asset to the team and patients at Mercy.

During my time employed at DHS Senior Services I was one of two individuals selected out of 40 for a 6 month leadership training program. The training was focused on developing awareness of culture biases, communication styles, how to positively impact work culture, and a team development project.
