October Mission Team
Hi everyone! My name is Sharon and I would like to share a little bit about myself. First, please call me Sherry. I have 2 children and I also have 2 beautiful grandchildren ages 10 and 11.
I have been a nurse for 25 yrs and have always worked in the operating room. I love being a nurse and am so grateful for the skills and knowledge the Lord has given me. When I became a nurse, a medical mission trip became top on my bucket list. I was so excited to learn about Nurses with Purpose on a travel nurse group site on Facebook and grateful for this opportunity. I am looking forward to meeting everyone, sharing this journey with you and making lifelong friends. I hope this be the first of many trips to come!
Hello, my name is Kristina and from Vermont! I decided to get my nursing degree later in life, my desire was to find a life long career that would be challenging, diverse, and gratifying. I have been an RN for 6 years now. I have a passion to travel, and to offer my medical assistance and a helping hand to communities in need. I am excited to be able to go on this Nursing Mission Trip to South Africa so that I can immerse myself in their culture and to learn as much as I can from this amazing opportunity.
Hey! My name is Chantelle and I'm currently living in Tampa, FL. I am a new nurse with 1 year of experience on a cardiac telemetry floor and a few months into training in a cardiac intensive care unit. Outside of nursing, I am constantly traveling to learnother cultures and experience different traditions. On my free time, I work on building a brand with a few close peers called Nurse Vibes to help spread education, tips, and nurse humor. Visiting the Motherland has always been on my long bucket list and I am beyond excited to serve to the community and create unforgettable memories with the October 2018 team!
