I’ve decided that I’m pretty darn lucky. I get to wear comfortable clothing in both my personal and professional lives. Now, don’t get me wrong, ‘comfortable clothing’ is definitely up for interpretation. But, lets be honest here, would the majority of the population honestly admit that wearing a suit or professional dress be the most comfortable clothing?
I’ve lived in the world of, “I can’t wait to get home to get into my ‘comfies”.
Well, now I ‘work’ in my comfies.. so to say. Heh heh.
I’m a Nurse Practitioner who works at a hospital, in the ICU. My professional garb is scrubs and maybe a lab coat.
I happen to see this pic on allnurses.com. How befitting?
The majority of my time spent outside of my profession is spent within the walls of my CrossFit world. Yes, a gym. So I workout and/or I coach CrossFit (including weightlifting). So, yeah, gym clothing.
Yep. Pretty darn lucky.

Yep. That’s me graduating from nursing school (diploma program). Me and my dad posing for a quick pic. Seems like a lifetime ago…
HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!!! We celebrated by taking a road trip to Chicago. Yours truly is finally taking his CrossFit Level 1 Certification course. Here are a couple pics from our road trip:
Other exciting news?
Oh, yeah… I have my very own YouTube show. Me and another nurse will have weekly videos featuring everything nursing. Real nurse. Real talk.
You may have heard or even seen this other nurse. Her name is Katie Duke. Ever heard of her? Ever heard of that reality TV series on ABC called NYMed?’
Yeah. She’s that nurse.
Our YouTube channel is called scrubsBeat. It may sound a bit familiar. This channel is partnered with the folks over at Scrubs Magazine, where I’ve been blogging for the past several years.
Here are some videos to get you started.
Here’s my premiere video:
And don’t forget to have a look-see at Katie’s video:
Be sure to visit our channel and subscribe!!!!!
So, this one time I got asked if I’d be interested in video blogging. And I accepted the invitation.
Here’s a sneak peak for what’s in store. Stay tuned for the first episode on Wednesday, July 2nd at 10 am Pacific/1pm Eastern and then a new show every Wednesday at that same time. Be sure to subscribe to the Scrubs Beat YouTube channel, that way you won’t miss watching me (and Katie Duke) talk frank and honest about the ‘real’ world of nursing.
Did I happen to mention seeing me on video is really weird?
I’ll hope you’ll tune in this week.
We were doing a travel assignment as first-time travel nurses in Baltimore, MD. Whew.. I’ve changed a bit.
Today I wasn’t the patient.
Just take a moment and be thankful for what you have gang. Life truly is fleeting.
A somber shift at work for me. I thought I’d end the day with some needed laughter.
Is this not the best Dad & Daughter duo ever?
Calling All Angels- Train – YouTube.
This song comes to mind.
Thank you to all my fellow angels who fight the good fight for others. EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.
