“Leadership is not measured by the number of accolades, positions you hold, or amount of wealth you accumulate. You’re on the path to being your best when you have reached a point on your leadership journey where you can be of assistance and influence a larger sphere of society.
I became a nurse because I wanted to care for others, and I wanted to reduce health disparities and inequities. But I learned early on that I needed to care and act. That’s why I’ve sought out leadership positions in organizations that help to provide safe and equitable care and access for everyone. I’ve tried to change structures and policies to break down barriers and reduce disparities so that more people can lead healthier lives.”
