Summary

I am a medical case manager major with a minor in medical assisting at Davenport University. I am also studying to become a nurse as well. So I guess you can say that I am a double major. I have a love for helping people any way that I can. I ultimately believe that nursing is my calling and everything in the medical field comes so easy to me almost like second nature. There is no better joy in the world besides my kids that lights my face up like the medical field. Case management makes me so marketable in the job market because I am then able to practice as a nurse or a case manager and in some businesses I am able to practice as both.

My educational goal is to receive my bachelors in the spring of 2012. After receiving my bachelors I hope to start my nursing clinical in the fall of 2012. I have decided to try and walk a little early so that my internship and clinical does not concede with each other in the fall. I plan to attend Wayne State to get my Master's degree as a Physician Assistant.
