What motivates you to advocate for heart healthy and stroke smart policies? There are several things that motivate me: I have a positive family history for heart disease and stroke. I have lost several loved ones from complications associated with both. My children motivate me. The patients I have cared for as a cardiac critical care nurse and their families also motivates me. Heart disease has an impact on all of us each and every day.
Fun Fact: I recently graduated with a Master of Business Administration (MBA), Health/Health Care Administration/Management from Southern Nazarene University.
