My role at Vascular Specialty Center to ensure this is the case for everyone who walks through our door. And it starts with compassion and commitment.

“I never forget why I’m here: To help take excellent care of every person who walks through our door. Few things are as personally fulfilling as being able to make a direct, positive and dramatic difference in the lives of others. This is why I elected to become a nurse. It’s also an important part of how everyone here treats each person in our care. We love what we do, which is to improve lives. I put my heart into it. And it’s always worth it!”
