What is your job title and what do you do at work?
I’m a registered nurse with a background in clinical research. I am currently pursuing a Ph.D. and am in my third year of graduate studies at the University of Cincinnati.
Where do you work?
I’m a graduate assistant at the College of Nursing, working with faculty and nurse scientists on research studies that are happening in our community.
Why is this work important to you?
These past 15 months have really highlighted the stressors of our healthcare professionals. I am hoping to use my research in occupational health and wellness to better promote the well being of nurses in their work environment. Nurses are change makers and leaders and I hope they can feel empowered to embrace their roles with more support.
What is the key lesson learned from last year?
I learned that it’s ok to slow down. Family has always been the most important thing to me, but I learned to really appreciate and soak up ALL the moments, big, and small.
How do you practice self-care when you’re not working?
I love to bake, get ice cream with friends, play tennis and go hiking—exploring new trails—along with biking or spinning, camping, and rock climbing. I also enjoy spending time with my bunny, frequenting farmer’s markets, trying new restaurants, and practicing yoga. Yoga has really helped me as part of my personal self-care process to connect with myself.
