What made you decide to enter out contest? 
I chose to enter the contest because I was excited to represent a brand that I personally use and honored to share my profession.

What made you decide to go into the healthcare profession? 
I decided to go into the healthcare profession because I love being able care and to be there for people when they are in there most vulnerable situations. Hospitals are a scary place in general, and especially for children. As a pediatric nurse if I can help to make their experience in the hospital not quite so scary, while helping with their health needs then I have done my job.

I was inspired to enter the health care field by my family. My mother, as well as my sisters suffer from chronic conditions and after spending many days and nights in the hospital by their bedside I grew to appreciate just how significant a nurses role played in their care.

What do you like to do in your spare time? 
In my spare time I enjoy exercising, and spending time with family and friends.  I like to think of myself as a coffee enthusiast. And I secretly really enjoy watching The Bachelor every Monday night.

What went through your mind when you found out that you won? 
When I found out I won I was completely shocked. I didn’t believe it at first.

They have been very supportive and excited for me. They are looking forward to seeing the finish product.
