1. What inspired you to become a nurse?
When I was in high school, I was a member of the Future Health Professionals organization known as, HOSA. We traveled throughout Georgia and across the country, attended leadership conferences and competed in health care skill competitions. That’s how I fell in love with health care early on. My first job out of high school was in my local ER as a Patient Care Tech. I worked with some incredible nurses who inspired me and encouraged me to apply to nursing school. In 2015, I graduated from AU’s BSN program and now I work in the Trauma ICU at Augusta University Health. I am currently back in school seeking my Doctorate of Nursing Practice degree. When I am done, I will be an Adult Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner.

2. What would you like people to know about nursing?
The possibilities are endless and the relationships are priceless! There are a million different directions you could take as a nurse. Many nurses enter the profession and it’s their second or third career choice.

3. Share a message to fellow nurses in honor of Nurses Week!
In honor of Nurses Week, I would like to extend my deepest gratitude and appreciation to all of the nurses reading this. Many of you feel overworked and under appreciated. I see you. I respect you. I hear you. I stand with you. We are nurses. We are one of a kind and together as one! You guys are amazing! You inspire me every single day. Thank you for everything that you do!

"Someone once told me that Occupational Therapy is all about helping people get back to what they want to do. As someone who wanted to help people but couldn't decide in what capacity, this was a profound concept. This was the moment I knew I wanted to be an occupational therapist. What better way to support and treat others than by focusing your care on tasks that are truly important to them? Now that I am nearing the end of my time at Augusta University, I can truthfully say that this program gave me every opportunity to do just that. I've had countless opportunities to serve the community, met so many amazing and inspiring people, and even went to Jamaica for a fieldwork experience. While graduation is always a bittersweet time, I am confident and excited to start my career as an OT knowing this program has prepared me to continue helping people."

IF YOU’RE A STUDENT, A COLLEGE GRADUATE OR THE PARENT OF ONE, you might want to vote Blue Jan. 5: Biden plans to ease student loan debt and make it much easier to get training and an education. https://www.google.com/search?q=picture+biden+to+help+students&source=lnt&tbs=qdr:w&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjaqLLS093tAhXWsJ4KHVv3DlcQpwV6BAgHECE&biw=1536&bih=722&dpr=1.25 If Georgia puts democrats Jon Ossoff and Rev. Warnock in the Senate, a lot of reasonable and overdue good things will happen for average people. The McConnell Gridlock will stop, and Biden will have the Senate votes to contain Covid and rebuild our economy by doing right and smart things—just as FDR did to lift America out of the Great Depression. o As Obama’s Recovery Czar, Biden re-built the economy after the 2008 Crash, saved millions of auto-related jobs and helped protect homeowners from foreclosures. o He and Obama created affordable health care and got rid of pre-existing conditions. o When they left office, America had the longest period of job growth in history. On January 5, vote for democrats Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff. It’s time we had leadership that knows how to get things done, and cares enough to do them.
FOUR SELFISH, SMART REASONS FOR GEORGIANS TO SEND TWO DEMOCRATS TO U.S. SENATE JANUARY 5: • Democrats will improve affordable health care and prevent pre-existing conditions. • Republicans will be blocked from killing affordable health care and resurrecting pre-existing conditions in Supreme Court • Democrats will protect Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. • Republicans won’t be able to pass their 2020 budget, which slashes all three. If Georgia puts two democrats in the U.S. Senate this January, the McConnell Gridlock will end. Biden will be able to contain Covid and rebuild our economy by doing right and smart things—just as FDR did to lift America out of the Great Depression. o As Obama’s Recovery Czar, Biden re-built the economy after the 2008 Crash, saved millions of auto-related jobs and helped protect homeowners from foreclosures. o He and Obama created affordable health care and got rid of pre-existing conditions. o When they left office, America had the longest period of job growth in history.

BODY BAGS: Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue Used a January Classified Senate Briefing to Make Illegal Stock Profits in Body Bags. They’d learned that massive death was coming to Georgia but downplayed the danger. https://www.facebook.com/meidastouch/videos/138996561314719 Today: 10,000 dead Georgians. Looks like Georgians may have been more valuable to them dead than alive. Despite their self-promotion as normal people, Loeffler and Perdue reject all religious and moral principles. By ethical standards, they are far below normal, decent Georgians. They are lost souls whose hearts reject common decency. From the moral sewer of that sick place, they throw into Georgians’ faces the lie that Rev. Warnock and Jon Ossoff are “radical” or “socialist.” Warnock is a man who takes the Bible seriously. The GOP cherry-picks his sermons out of context to paint a phony dark distortion of a true man of Christ. He and Ossoff are exceptional in their lifelong service to others. On January 5, vote for normal, decent people: Rev. Warnock and Jon Ossoff. They will put their constituents—not their stock portfolios—first. Joe Biden, who found lifelong joy in serving others, needs them in the Senate to break the McConnell Deadlock.

EVERY YEAR: THE RECORD TEMPERATURES ARE HIGHER AND STORMS ARE MORE VIOLENT THAN THE YEAR BEFORE. Today’s extreme floods, fires, and wrecked communities are small portents of far worse to come. We slide toward a planet “hostile to human life” as “climate in chaos leads to an economy in meltdown.” THE UNINHABITABLE EARTH by David Wallace-Wells, based on 99% scientific agreement. KELLY LOEFFLER, DAVID PERDUE, AND THE TRUMP GOP sped up this climate change by killing environmental laws—allowing toxins to be dumped into drinking water and the air we breathe and destroying national forests. They used their January 2020 classified Senate briefing to make illegal stock profits in body bags, not protect Georgians. https://www.facebook.com/meidastouch/videos/138996561314719 Before Trump Republicans accelerated the climate clock, Obama/Biden slowed that clock with ten initiatives. https://www.edf.org/blog/2017/01/12/ready-defend-obamas-environmental-legacy-top-10-accomplishments-focus. Biden knows how to reverse climate change, but he can’t do it without Georgians. He needs them to elect Jon Ossoff and Rev. Warnock January 5 so that he has the Senate votes to break the McConnell Gridlock. If Georgians vote for these democratic senators, Biden will create millions of good-paying green jobs that will help average people pay their bills, keep their homes, and take care of their kids.

REPUBLICAN SENATORS WOULD BE BAD FOR GEORGIA AND AMERICA ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Senate Republicans are working for the wealthy elite and big corporations, not for the working and middle classes. They have been waging war against working people for many years in the following ways: #1 Republicans are supported by big business, which finances their campaigns, while shipping jobs overseas and decimating American factories and jobs. #2. Enabling illegal immigration (for example in meatpacking plants and service industries) in order to keep wages low on American workers and increase corporate profits, They express sham anguish over the problem of their own making whereas they could fine or prosecute the employers for ignoring the rules and using “contract labor” or the underground economy, but that would offend their donors. #3. Passing laws and regulations to weaken labor unions. Republicans have lowered tax rates for the wealthy by more than half since the Eisenhower years. This has widened the gap between rich and average people in the country, and now a small number of billionaires have more combined wealth than the entire 330 million rest of us. One of the first things the Trump administration did with Republican control, was to vastly lower taxes again -for the wealthy-, creating a deficit of more than a trillion dollars, which has come back to haunt us now that people are going sick and hungry and at risk of losing their housing in a troubled economy and with only grudging help from a callous Republican-controlled Senate and White House. Republicans have been trying to eliminate the Affordable Care Act, with no viable plan to replace it, and especially with the elimination of the pre-existing conditions clause during a pandemic. They have also been cozy with the drug companies and not made a serious effort to lower drug prices, which would be easy to do with the government’s buying power. They have collaborated with the failed leadership of the Trump administration, resulting in many thousands of deaths over the per capita rates in other advanced countries. They are trying to weaken and reduce medicare and social security coverage for senior citizens, destroy the post office, split-off aid from public schools to also benefit private schools, etc. I could list much more, but I need to keep this brief.----------------------------------------------------------------- I would like to add a simple but important note. If you- the average Georgian, were sitting at the kitchen table, would you be discussing these issues or the usual “red-meat” distractions the Republicans always use to distract you, such as guns, abortion and race? The wealthy elite control the Republican party, but they need lots of other people to vote with them, so they bring up emotional issues to excite people but which have no real impact on your lives. Perdue and Loeffler not only represent the wealthy elite, but they are among its’ ranks. They have used their power to enrich themselves with insider trading. They have supported attacks on our democracy. They have misrepresented themselves and made false accusations against their opponents. They have disdain for workers they controlled. Don’t let them stiff you. Fire them.
