She enjoys helping patients and has a comforting and caring nature. She would like to volunteer at a shelter so she could help those in need. She is always polite and is a good listener. She often puts the needs of others in front of her own and will go out of her way to offer assistance. She enjoys reading, cooking, and spending time with her family. She has two sons and a miniature schnauzer named Odie.
