Ever since I became a nurse I was driven to be the best nurse I could be. Throughout the years I have be blessed to touch the lives of many patients and staff and I truly had no idea the impact I was making until a nursing assistant contacted me many years later to let me know that I inspired her to go to Nursing School. I take great pride in the impact I have as a Nurse Leader upon nurses. The DAISY foundation allows me to live out my mission of inspiring nurses to be the best that they can be by putting a spotlight on excellent nursing care and having a platform for nurses to see what a great nurse looks like. I would definitely have to say that presenting DAISY Awards to Wesley nurses is one of the most rewarding aspects of my job and it is a great way to "fill my cup".
