Personal Statement

I decided early in life that I wanted to work in a healthcare profession to serve others by assisting in their recovery from accident or illness to promote a return to independence in their daily lives. I am a Kentucky native that enjoys sports of all sorts including: University of Kentucky Basketball and Football and Cincinnati Reds Baseball. Most of all, I enjoy watching my 2 kids pursue their interests in volleyball and baseball.
