Tell us a little about yourself.
“During my spare time I am a world traveler. I am originally from Kankakee, Illinois. The oldest of two children, no children and married for 21 years. Raised by my mother who is entirely my heart and best friend. Although I am not working directly with COVID-19 patients (I treat everyone as if they are positive), I feel like I am giving back to the community by educating the staff about the proper use of a mask, social distancing, hand washing and many other ways to stay safe during the pandemic.”
