Where do you work? What is your title?

UCLA Health, clinical nurse 

How has the COVID-19 pandemic impacted your life?

The first six months were dedicated to the COVID effort, including vaccine administration. Personally, its affected our family because our families are all overseas and we can’t see them.

What drew you to the nursing profession?

I wanted direct patient care and I knew it was something I could be good at.

What do you love most about being a nurse?

I can use both clinical and leadership skills in my role, as well as my IT skills. I am able to use my broad range of experiences and apply it to nursing.
