Inspirations

Caring

  • This is the 60 Minutes interview with the nurses who cared for the gentleman who passed from Ebola.  This is a truly inspiration piece about the power of our work.
  •  Leeza Gibbon recently the winner of Celebrity Apprentice held herself in a place of highest integrity throughout the TV program.  No small accomplishment in my opinion.  She inspired me by her passion for individuals with Alzheimer’s through the Leeza’s Care Connection foundation.   Her lovely jewelry supports her mission.

 Dr. JoNeil Smith

joneil_smithOne of my true best friends Dr. JoNeil Smith’s doctoral dissertation studied the incidence and predictors of bullying in Surgical Suites.  Her dissertation is fascinating and compelling as it tells the story that bullying is alive and flourishing behind the doors of our ORs.

“I attribute my success to this- I never gave or took any excuse.”
“The object and color in the materials around us actually have a physical effect on us, on how we feel.”
“How very little can be done under the spirit of fear.”
