I have been an active member and currently the Vice President of the Student Nurses Organization group within the University of Maine at Fort Kent. This group does both drives and fundraisers which help raise not only money for our class, but supplied items to community members in need such as the food pantry and the supply of pajamas for a local nursing home. Since being enrolled in the UMFK nursing program I have been able to obtain my SIDS, HIPPA, CPR, Purple Cry, Mandatory Reporter, and You Call The Shots certifications. My hobbies consist of exercising and being an active community member. This allows me to not only stay actively involved in my community but allow myself to provide self-care.
