It offered everything that I was looking for. Nursing was my calling. I love assisting others to help them achieve their highest level of functioning, their quality of life and their healthiest state of being.
Describe your experience at Spencerian.
My favorite thing about Spencerian is that we were a family. Everyone I came in contact with, from my instructors to my classmates, were instrumental in helping me achieve my goals. Miss Marie McCormick is one of the many instructors who impacted my journey greatly. Her ambition and hard work is astounding, as she left a huge impression on me. I felt like all of my instructors were there to help me achieve what I wanted and prepare me for my career by working hard. In both of my nursing programs at Spencerian, I made life-long friendships and I wouldn’t change the experience for anything!
Why did you take the position at Fresenius?
I took this position after working as a facility administrator with another dialysis company. I love what I do while getting to see the world. I thank Spencerian for laying the foundation for myself and so many other students.
What is your advice for students?
Work hard, set expectations of excellence, and know that your instructors are there to assist you in your educational goals. What you get out of your education is what you put in. You have to be the change you want to see in the world!
