"Nurses come up to me and they're like I have an idea, and I’m like great…continue continue continue...That is how healthcare is going to evolve."
“That was one of the first moment I realized wow I'm trained to be looking at her disease and symptoms but really the interaction of the environment and her ability to use it are what really will lead to...her ability to be who she wants to be.”
“Nurses should not be afraid to be innovators.”
“Calling myself an inventor wasn't something I really did until I was hanging out with other people to use those words all the time. That’s when it clicked to me that that’s what we do. We have ideas and those are worth something in the world and they should really have an audience.”
