Greetings All! I am a passionate, spiritual writer and nurse, disaster volunteer and mother with a devotion to caring for people. In my professional nursing practice I tend to gravitate toward working in critical care units or in areas affected by natural disasters. The stress associated with working in a profession and specialty area that is continually impacted by illness, injury and death helps me reflect upon my own life. I have spent the past few years volunteering in Haiti after the devastating earthquake in 2010. Although it has been difficult, living and working with Haitian people has given me such incredible joy and filled my heart with gratitude. I have worked in many places around the world, from Tennessee to California and Guam to Hawaii. As a writer, I enjoy reflecting on past experiences that give meaning to living a present life and expressing them through short stories and poetry.
