Additional Information

I love to be with the right people; God fearing and faithful. Working in the current position, I do not have this kind of relationships. No one knows I am in the building, no communication or involvement. No help from manager to complete tasks if additional help is needed she will pass on to someone else. I realize she is new but we all have to learn at some point. I love my Supervising Nurse, she is wonderful and helpful but she cannot always be in one place. Prior Manager was on top of it and a rubber to the road kind of influence and she motivated each and everyone, unfortunately she retired. I am in a square box with no interaction other than Middle School students, lol. I love my students and it is also very stressful being the only nurse in the building.

I rarely ever miss work, I am always here, maybe not with bells on but I show up. I love the time freedom it allows. Being with family is my number one priority. I do not consider my job to take my life over. I have 3 sons, 2 daughters-in-law, husband and 2 grands, they are my life and they are the ones that matter most.

When I worked in Urology, I loved it and should have never left that position but God only knows what I avoided by leaving. Urology is my forte so to speak, it clicked with me and I will always cherish the experience to work 11 years with a great physician and nurse practitioner.

I love to bake! I do this for people that want to buy something special. I love to craft, ribbon making, wreaths, etc.
