Jessica remembers from her youth feeling called to the nursing profession. She would often tell her parents “I want to be a baby nurse when I grow up.” Naïve comments from her childhood innocence could never prepare her for the life that nursing has given. She along with so many of her peers could tell you endless stories of chaos, joy, death, trauma, and the greatest triumphs known to every single one of our careers. Shared stories of meaningful connection bind hearts in deep humanity and belonging. Jessica has dedicated her life’s work to building resiliency, enhancing empathy, and connecting clinicians meaningfully to their work.
