So How Does This
Education & Experience Benefit You?
Through her entire nursing career she was faced with a variety of complex issues all of which needed to be solved with measurable outcomes as people’s and/or their loved one’s lives depended on it. Choosing to serve others overseas in New Zealand and Dominican Republic stems from her true belief which is: "we are all individuals who deserve attention, have value and are worthy of a fulfilling life."
This mentality has contributed to many people describing her as inclusive, non-judgemental, calming and professionally warm.
We all learn differently, this is the reason the programs incorporate a variety of learning mediums and apply various learning principles.
