What is the most inspiring part of your career?
The most inspiring part of my career as a nurse has been the ability to make an impact in the lives of my patients, meet them at their point of need and help my patients to make positive changes in their lives
Why did you choose to specialize/work in mental healthcare?
I chose to specialize in mental healthcare because of the sometimes unstructured nature of the work. Every patient care situation is different and the need to sometimes "think outside the box" when attending to a particular patient issue.
What are your interests outside of work?
Chess, Mobile computer programming, 5K running and reading up on the latest developments in psychopharmacology and reading fantasy novels
What’s the last book you read?
Game of Thrones by George RR Martin - "A feast for Crows"
