I decided to pursue nursing because I wanted to do something in my career that is challenging, interesting, and makes a difference in people’s lives on a daily basis. I graduated from Keiser Career College and have been a nurse for 8 years. I was born and raised in Miami, FL. Prior to coming to UF I worked at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital in the Pediatric Allergy and Immunology Department. During my free time I like to spend time with my son Daniel, and our Labradoodle Clover.
