HOW DID YOU GET INTO YOUR CAREER?: “I decided after working for Walmart for 12 years to go back to school and get a ‘real job.’ I was interested in Nursing and working in Surgery, so I received certification in Surgical Technology and started working in the operating room at Self Regional Hospital in Greenwood, S.C. I was hooked from the moment I saw my first Craniotomy and have since become a nurse, graduated with a master’s in Health Administration, and I am currently working on my bachelor’s in Nursing.”
