Born and raised in the Lubbock area, I wanted to be a nurse ever since I was little. Working as a charge nurse in the Ruby house I am able to be the eyes and ears of the floor and it’s a responsibility that I enjoy. I started in the healthcare industry as a CNA when I was 17 years old, and during that time I worked for a nursing home while attending South Plains College.
The atmosphere Crown Point provided here is warm and hospitable; that along with the great group of people working here makes me look forward to the workdays. Its great because it has a family owned vibe which brings a sence of closeness between the staff, employees, and guests who are here. Working here has been such a positive thing. I have been able to do what I love and my different experiences in short-term care here have helped me grow as a nurse.
My favorite thing about working here is that I can see the role I play in the guest’s recovery. I can watch them get better and be able to walk out of here, and that has been a feeling I have felt like no other. It’s a great experience; geriatrics is my thing so I’ll stick with it.
