February 2017

Just got back from an amazing trip to Los Angeles California where I had the privilege to be a speaker at the 1st Annual NeuroNICU Nurse Conference put on by the awesome team at SynapseCare. The kitty family in the photo was crafted from play-doh used for one of my activities - it was tons of fun!

With over 180 attendees, the networking, learning and problem-solving was dynamic and clinically relevant.

Attending these types of events reminds me how blessed I am to be part of such a passionate, knowledgable, human-centered profession. All too often it's easy to get lost and overwhelmed by the competing priorities that confront us over the course of a shift. But, when we come together to problem-solve, learn and enhance the service we provide to other I think we are reminded that we are not in this alone; when we come together with a common goal we can move mountains and change lives!

Thanks again Kathi, Shannon, Jenn and the rest of the Synapsecare team, with a special shout out to my new BFF Marsha - let's do this again!!

And to all the attendees, please stay in touch!! Let's keep the momentum going! You make a difference everyday, touching lives and impacting lifetimes!

Take care and care well!
