I got into nursing totally by the Lord's design. I was a florist and youth worker first and didn't know what I wanted to do for sure.
My mom is a hard working RN and I first started being her gopher with her Red Cross blood draws when I was around 13. I was exposed to nursing and medicine, as all children of nurses are.
When I moved to Nebraska I tried back-breaking CNA work, and decided I'd try LPN school to see if nursing and medicine were really my interests.
I love learning. I love how our bodies function and I love intervening to help the body. I found myself to be a natural caregiver and I had a lot of compassion for people.
I decided to go from LPN to RN with my Bachelors. During RN clinical and work at various hospitals, the big shift in me occurred that my desire was to prevent people from getting sick and into the hospital in the first place.
At that point I set my eyes to go all the way through my masters and family practitioner schooling. Deep in my heart the desire to have my own practice was birthed without me even realizing it (Holy SPIRIT seed planted) I wanted to start a faith based practice because we are body, soul, and spirit - and I wanted the freedom to speak spiritual truth into people's lives, which can be more healing than medication.
In January 2014 I had a very clear word from the Spirit that will make up part of the next phase of my journey. He whispered...God is ready to show His power in your area through healing.
