As a child, Julie wanted to pursue a career as a nurse or dance instructor. MCHC is thankful she chose the nursing route as she is a wonderful asset to the team and her devotion is appreciated. Julie is a helper and doer. She strives for the best care with her patients. Julie states, “I enjoy the patients that I come in contact with. I love to see the progress of the patients I take care of. Knowing that I had a part of their recovery is such a rewarding feeling that makes me know I am doing what I am here to do.”
As part of the MCHC team, Julie expresses, “I enjoy my co-workers. Nursing is a team effort to provide the best care to our patients. It doesn’t just take one nurse to take care of patients, it takes a team of health care professionals that I enjoy working with every day. That team is part of MCHC. I am so grateful for the opportunity that MCHC has given me.”
