Epic work fails

Franciscan Children's patient US Citizenship/FANnual

It's okay to make mistakes and ultimately it will lead to understanding process and how to fix it for next time.

Am I lucky?

Yes... but I also think the world gives back the energy you give it.
Most fulfilling project cover image

Most fulfilling project I've worked on

a patient discharge from Franciscan Children's Hospital

To see this patient, who was only 2 years old, be reunited with her family outside of the hospital was extremely heartwarming and filled me with so much joy. Knowing how special family is to me, this moment was extremely touching and fulfilling.

The best environment for me is:

I learn best by…

doing itSeeing it

I am an extremely visual person. As soon as I see someone do something, I will be able to do it. For example, once I see how to get somewhere, I will know it forever (finding meeting rooms in MHQ)

A fun fact about me is…

I have been skiing since I was 18 months old :)
