I grew up with a grandpa who had a “half finger.” When he was a young man, he accidently cut off the other half with a saw and was rushed to the hospital. He really liked the nurse who cared for him in the emergency room—so much, that he asked her out on a date. Eventually they got married and had a family. That ER nurse was my grandma!

It showed Nurse Lisa getting into her car in a heavy rainstorm and driving at night to reach her client who was sitting alone in his wheelchair, waiting by the window. Would she arrive?

It allows me to be of service to others, which I believe is my gift.  And so began my journey to where I am now.

I grew up as part of the BAYADA family. My mom has been working here in operations and support roles for almost as long as I’ve been alive. I started working here as an office assistant in 2004, when I was a teenager. In college for my BSN, I had a part-time job as a BAYADA Home Health Aide. That was a little scary at first, but it turned out to be a great experience. I remember my mentors gave me all kinds of training and support in the simulation lab until I felt very comfortable and prepared.
