Growing up where I grew up, healthcare isn’t the first option in careers. I thought very differently and began my career as nurse assistant in a SNF, transitioned into ALF as a caregiver, and eventually became the building manager. Thereafter I pivoted into account management here at the pharmacy. Along the journey, I was blessed to have met many beautiful and influential people that mentored and helped mold me into the person I am now. I am forever grateful for the opportunities that presented themselves and were able to work towards.
