April 9, 2020

Villanova taught me about compassion and resilience.  I am currently working at the Asplundh Cancer Pavilion which is part of the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center Jefferson Health network.  We are continuing to see and treat patients for their cancer diagnosis.  Our patient’s do not want to hide from cancer, let alone COVID-19.  So, my Villanova experience has taught me the strength to show up and continue to work hard to ensure that our patient’s treatment continues. We continue to make safety our number one priority.  Our patients teach us about strength.  All the staff provides compassionate care, and we are taking time out to prop each other up and help maintain our emotional and physical resilience. Together, as a team, I am proud to be a Villanova nurse providing care throughout this epidemic.
