I get DMed a lot with followers asking me WHY I chose nursing. I'm actually not one of those people who dreamed of being a nurse as a young child, nor did I even think I would be a nurse in high school. Nursing kind of just fell in my lap. It's honestly a silly story, but I guess I'll share since I'm asked quite frequently. Before I got into nursing I went to school for forensic science. I did a coroner program here in Vegas where I helped out as an autopsy tech for a little while. During this same time I was a semester away from graduating with my bachelors degree. The month of graduation I kept thinking of "what more" I could do with life. I didn't feel complete, I started thinking about graduate school and what other options I had. I guess you can say, I wasn't 100% happy with my career options. Fast forward to graduation day, from UNLV, I was walking out after graduation and on the floor there was a graduation sash on the ground and MULTIPLE cars had run over it. Immediately I grabbed it knowing someone worked hard to receive it. When I turned it around, it was a nursing sash. It sounds silly, but that was literally the final sign I needed and I applied for my first pre req class the following day!! Prior to that I had dreams of myself in a nurses role. I specifically remember this one dream where I was performing CPR and saved a patient's life. I felt good knowing I had made a difference in one's life. Nonetheless, all these signs pushed me to go to nursing school which is why I'm where I'm at now- 2 weeks and 3 days away from being done with my final class in nursing school. It's never too late to go back and fulfill your dreams- never think you're too old, never think you can't do it, and never ever ever stop until you're HAPPY with your life and career. I sure didn't- and look where it took me 🤗 #IbelieveInSigns #superstitious

Our last clinical EVER!!! @candiicane87 thank you for being a wonderful friend, clinical partner and study buddy. I’m so lucky to have had you by my side throughout this journey over these last 2 years!!! Guys, find yourself an amazing friend your first semester of nursing school! It’s soooo vital to be able to have others to help you through this difficult journey, you cannot do it alone. Nursing is all about team work and helping your co-workers, build those relationships early on and you’ll be good. Love you candisssssh

Blink 182 album cover or student nurse?? 🤔🤔 Either way, I’m still in shock that I took this pic over a year ago!!! LIKE WHAAAT! Sometimes I can’t believe how quickly nursing school went by. Although it definitely didn’t feel quick while I was suffering through the countless hours of work. I look back now, and it seems like just yesterday that I was learning all of these new skills. So crazy how time flies!

Doc says prob. One more day to keep me here, gotta keep up on my breathing treatments. I'm getting a bit stir crazy. My butt is sore from this bed. Need a shower, need to cuddle with my wife, doggy Shelby, and holding my baby boy again. Big thanks to all my family for their huge help since been in here. Love you all.

It’s still surreal that I’m all finished with nursing school. This has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life and now this is the end of 1 journey and the beginning of many more. Accepted a job at one of the best hospitals in Indianapolis and I’m excited to continue to grow in my passion💉 #RN #madeitlookeasy #toGodbetheglory ❤️

Adventures in kidney transplant. One benefit of not relying on dialysis anymore is that during the zombie apocalypse I can survive without a machine.

Virtual reality exercise. Getting blasted by so much wind while on my exercise bike I feel like I'm actually out on the road riding. Got my sweats and wind breaker and still freezing.

When the weather gets cold it's time to be prepared for bed. After kidney transplant, anything below 75 degrees I am cold, so this windy chill tonight has me freezing and trembling.

My new hybrid/cruiser to keep active with my kids as my new kidney pushes me forward. Yes, those are red solo cup valve covers on the wheels. Since my primary bike is too fast to pace with Mia, this new addition to my stable will be a fun adventure in Project Rolling Kidneys. If you are a kidney patient or want to show support for kidney warriors, jump on board and ride with us in Pasadena, CA or start your own chapter.
Be sure to hashtag #projectrollingkidneys to bring awareness to the plight of live kidney donation. #bike #biking #exercise #fitness #healthy #recovery #weightloss #fattietrying #kidneydiseasesucks #kidney #kidneytransplant #cutenurses #shareakidneysavealife #spareakidneysavealife

I want to get some kidney warriors in my area together for short bike rides. Nothing too strenuous. Just to get us out and keep the blood flowing. Any dialysis and transplant patients around the Pasadena area who would like to get out for a lap or two around the Rose Bowl please contact me. It's a little over 3 miles around and we can keep it at a slow pace. Or just hang out with other kidney patients to share stories and experiences about our struggle. We can set up a picnic site for those who can't bike as a sort of home base and spend a couple hours bonding and offering moral support. #bike #biking #exercise #fitness #healthy #recovery #weightloss #kidneydiseasesucks #kidney #kidneytransplant #cutenurses #shareakidneysavealife #spareakidneysavealife #rosebowl #pasadena

Don’t forget what’s truly important in life. Yah, money is cool and buying nice things, nice cars, Louis Vuitton’s purses and what not is definitely fun, but will any of that mean anything once your time is up here on earth??? Don’t work yourself to death for objects that don’t mean anything to the soul. Don’t get me wrong, a girl loves dropping a hot dime on shoes and makeup, but what’s truly important is family and cherishing moments with them. They won’t remember that you bought them the new Yeezys for Christmas when they’re grown, but they will remember all the holiday traditions you have ingrained in them throughout the years. Never lose focus on what’s important in life. “Things” are not important, but family is. 📸: @makeitlastphotography

Adventures in kidney transplant. Reached my goal today of a 10 mile ride and scared a few folks along the way.  Only cramped once during the last mile. Time will tell how my body will react later today.

I can only physically handle one shoot a day so don't all be flooding my inbox now. #photographer #photoshoot #portraits #familytime #kidneydiseasesucks #kidney #kidneytransplant #cutenurses #shareakidneysavealife #spareakidneysavealife
Adventures in kidney transplant. Had a good morning challenging myself on a bike trek from Pasadena to La Cañada to Altadena and back to Pasadena. Thanks to cousin Mike B. for riding along and helping me challenge myself.  Thought I was gonna pass out on the big upward incline at the start but Jack, my new kidney, said to do it. So glad I found the strength to tackle that hill and complete the almost 9 mile trip. Laid out at home now but grateful to have attained another goal on this recovery journey. Now if only I could stop bruising and catching colds from people. #fattietrying #bike #biking #exercise #fitness #healthy #recovery #weightloss #kidneydiseasesucks #kidney #kidneytransplant #cutenurses #shareakidneysavealife #spareakidneysavealife #ucla #uclamedical #stillfat

@uconnlymcrew @loveyourmelon 
Working in a pediatric emergency room, I see day in and day out what childhood cancer does to our children and their families. It is so heart wrenching to see what these families and patients go through and that’s why I’ve teamed up with @loveyourmelon to help raise money to donate to those affected by this horrible disease. It is their goal to reach 1 million dollars to donate this week!!! They’re at 300,000, so let’s help them get to their goal by purchasing one of their items on their website. 50% of sales goes directly to those fighting pediatric cancer!! Let’s change lives and help fund childhood cancer research because our kiddos deserve more than 4%!!! #childhoodcancer #childhoodcancerawareness

Today is a great day to reflect on everything you’re grateful for. A day after giving thanks and spending a day with family and friends who mean the most to you. It’s important to be thankful not just on special days like Thanksgiving, but everyday! Each day, name 3 things you’re grateful for and you’ll see how quickly your perspective changes on life and what you have. So many of us always key in on things we don’t have and we fail to realize that we are blessed beyond measure. I admit that I’m not perfect and sometimes I want more too, but I also find it so important to reflect on the things we do have. Today, I am grateful for the ability to learn so that I can one day utilize all the skills I’ve attained to save lives. What are you grateful for today??

2,500 miles apart on this first holiday after transplant but the bond is strong as we wore our matching shirts on Thanksgiving Day without even planning it. #twinsies #myhero #kidneywarrior #esrd #kidneydiseasesucks #kidney #kidneytransplant #cutenurses #shareakidneysavealife #spareakidneysavealife #ucla #uclamedical #mohawk #joico #bedhead #hairglue #selfies #thanksgiving #grateful #orlandotolosangeles #floridatola @jackietunaya @uclahealth
