“Growing up, I was surrounded by my grandparents and elders in my neighborhood, who were part of my extended family. I enjoyed listening to the recollections of history and life experiences, which I found to be intriguing. As I look back, my passion of caring for our elders was always present and has been strengthened over the years through my life experiences. I grew up in an environment where my family had the opportunity to care for our elders in the home and provided support to our elders in the neighborhood.”

“I was raised by my grandmother during the first six years of my life. She was an excellent role model and the values that she taught me have remained with me for my entire life. She was very compassionate and read the Bible frequently and she me to ‘always treat people the way you would like to be treated.’ I believe the teaching she provided me had a positive impact on my career as a nurse. To this day, I have a passion for providing care and service for the elders.”
