I want my patients to know that they always come first. Nursing, for me, was the end product of exceptional training, mentoring, tutoring, kind nudging and loving support through medicine. I have worked as an EMT, home care assistant, medical assistant, phlebotomist, EKG technician, radiation ambulatory care assistant, Registered Nurse and Oncology Certified Nurse. Every patient is unique and different, offering an opportunity to provide the most up-to-date health and wellness teaching available. Before I enter the doors at Marin Cancer Care for my shift, I repeat to myself, Let me dedicate my life today to the care of those who come my way. Let me touch each one with a healing hand and the gentle art for which I stand. And then tonight when the day is done, let me rest in peace if I’ve helped just one.
