I was born and raised in Yonkers, NY. I have volunteered at animal shelters since a young age which always brought me joy. I began volunteering at White Plains Hospital a few years ago to get myself acquainted with the medical field and how things work in a hospital setting. Volunteering led to my present position as a Nursing Technician at White Plains Hospital. My current goal is to become a registered nurse. The experiences I’ve had throughout my two years of working at the hospital have been great. I love being able to help people whether they are young or old, and becoming a registered nurse will enable me to expand the ways I am able to help each patient. Eventually I would like to further my education even more and become a nurse practitioner so that I can reach and help more people.
