"I decided I wanted to be a part of the medical field after taking care of my grandmother who had multiple myeloma. During the course of her treatment, I met many nurses and doctors working hard to help my grandmother's quality of life. This experience helped me understand that I wanted to make a difference for someone else too. I enjoy working with patients in their own homes because I can spend more time with them than is typical in other healthcare settings, and I can give them undivided attention and care they deserve."
