COVID-19 is always on my mind, so I thought I would share my inner thoughts with you.
In addition to my music career, I work full time as a Nurse Manager at a continuing care facility, providing care for people of all ages.. My clients really keep me going, sometimes sending me home at the end of the day with inspiration for new songs.
These have been some of the toughest days we have ever faced. But we will get through this.
How are we doing, well, I continue to put my patients first providing them with a holistic approach on their healthcare that consists of physical, mental, spiritual and emotional health.
If you have someone in a long term care facility - Take a moment out of your day to reach out, say hello, draw a picture or swing by the home and give your loved ones a wave. This will truly go a long way. I see it every day in the faces of my patients.
My cowboy boots will always keep me grounded and remind me of where I came from. Home is where my heart is.
