My first year working as an RN was at Loma Linda University Medical Center in the CCU.  It was here that I met the dear sweet Dr. Cogen  that gave me the opportunity of a lifetime.  I applied to go on a medical mission with the Loma Linda University Heart Team to go over and help set up a new hospital in Khamis Mushait, Saudi Arabia.  After that trip I was determined to go back to school get my BSN and join the Heart Team.  I did just that  and worked with the LLUMC Heart Team for 10 years and went on 2 more mission trips with them to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.  I since got married,  raised my children and have always had a longing in my heart to do more mission work.
