Healthcare worker has been instilled in me for years, as my first career choice as a military surgical specialist for the United States Army. Making the late decision to pursue the profession of Nursing seems to be the perfect time to transition as I decide to make a career change, continue my education, and follow the desire that has stayed with me all this time which is to make a difference in the lives of others, by providing health, wellness and care.

I spent most of my time in a revolving cubicle (they didn't have enough space for me to have my own cubicle), writing data cleaning programs in SAS and developing surveys in EpiInfo. I often took breaks from my primary task in order to attend lectures and presentations onsite at CDC, as well as attend weekly meetings with my team and other shadowing opportunities.
