Senior Staff Nurse Renal Transplant Nurse
I love building relationships with patients and families while providing education that enables them to be active members of their own healthcare team. In kidney transplant, the survival of the transplant depends on patients complying with their medication regime every day for the rest of their lives. For people who were just diagnosed with kidney conditions, they can slow down the disease progression through dietary and lifestyle modifications. I am passionate about giving patients the information they need so they have the knowledge to take ownership over their health.
What was your most rewarding moment being a renal transplant coordinator?
For me, the best part of my career is being able to see someone who is really sick return to good health. I’ve seen children return to college, dialysis patients who were difficult to deal with become cheerful, happier and more approachable. I’ve also heard of patients who get married and now have children of their own.
