What motivates you to do/pursue science and/or medicine?

I absolutely love being a registered nurse. Nursing is my ministry. I love taking care of people and now have the honor of taking care of our nation's heroes. Penn State provided a quality education that prepared me for the workforce.

What does Black History Month mean to you?

A time to reflect and honor the individuals who have paved the way. While we still have a ways to go, I am forever grateful for the foundation laid.
