What is your favorite part of working at CWCC?
I started working at CWCC in September 2023. On the second day of work, I learned that my certification board required an additional course before I could become certified. I am so grateful to CWCC administrators for working with me while I completed this additional and unexpected requirement! During my time awaiting my certification I was able to provide medical services as a family nurse practitioner. I also had the opportunity to learn about alcohol withdrawal management. Through this learning, I developed a standing order protocol, which I hope will be helpful as we expand this service here at CWCC. Upon completion of the required course, I was approved by the certification board to sit for my licensing examination, and I am so thankful to report that I passed!
What do you like most about the work you do here?
I have enjoyed learning about the many different programs that are available here at CWCC. During these past few months, I have really treasured the opportunity to meet many of my colleagues. It has been exciting to learn about the valuable services they each provide.
What’s the most interesting thing you’ve done recently?
The course that was required for my certification was Advanced Pathophysiology. Although it was unfortunate that the need for this course delayed my certification, I honestly loved taking it! I learned so much and feel I am a more knowledgeable provider because of the content in this course!
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?
This is an interesting question! I have lived in many countries around the world. My late husband was from the island nation of Fiji and I learned a great deal about island culture while living and working in Fiji. I would love to travel back to Fiji to see my nieces and nephews again. Unfortunately, I may not be able to go to Fiji anytime soon. However, I do have a nephew living in Mexico. He is getting married later this year. I look forward to traveling with my husband to Oaxaca, Mexico, to celebrate with my nephew for this wonderful occasion!
