Professional Summary
I've known from a young age that the medical field is where I wanted to be. I started my career in the HST program my freshman year of high school. I received my Certified Nursing Assistance, phlebotomy, and pharmacy tech traniee. I then continued to the EMT- basic program at Lamar Institute of Technology. I recently graduated from the Licensed Vocational Nursing program at Lamar State College Orange. During my clinical orientation for the Emergency Room I realized my passion for trauma nursing. My ultimate goal is to be a RN- BSN specializing in Emergency care with my CEN Certification.  I love to learn and I'm always the first to volunteer for skills I have not had the opportunity to try. The experiences I had during my clinical rotations at St. Elizabeth made me know without a doubt that this facility's morals and values align with my personal morals and values and that this facility is the place I would love to pursue and grow in my professional long term development.
