My dad studied in Lima, Peru and came to the United States of America to practice medicine; my mother served as a registered nurse in the U.S. Army Reserve. Both have taught me the lesson of working hard and making a positive difference in my community. I have had an interest in the health field growing up, being born and raised in the state of West Virginia known for their poor health care. My small, rural town called Bluefield, the town that I call home, is part of a healthcare system in Southwest Virginia. My goal growing up was to make a difference in my community and give back to the people in need.
