"God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago," Ephesians 2:8-9.
I seek to share what I've been entrusted as a steward of knowledge and experiences for the growth and mentoring of future health care professionals. I am passionate about the impact that we can make as servant leaders in the growing field of PA for the glory of our Lord and King, Jesus Christ!
