After attending college for three years as a music major I realized that my calling lay elsewhere and enrolled in a two year nursing program at the New Hampshire Community Technical College. While in school we learned briefly about the different nursing opportunities abroad and the thought has never left my mind and was always a ‘someday’ thought. I have been an RN now for almost thirteen years and have worked exclusively as a Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Nurse in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. I have a wonderful husband and two beautifully busy young boys ages 6 & 11. Two years ago I decided to further my education and began the BSN program at the University of North Carolina-Greensboro; when I heard that there was a school sponsored trip to Iquitos, Peru I immediately filled out my application realizing that ‘someday’ was ‘now’ and I am now on my way! I am very thankful for the support of ONAAT and cannot thank them enough for giving me the opportunity to share this journey with them!!
