Turning the spotlight on some of our amazing Nurses
Learn more about what inspires our registered nurses and what led them into this compassionate field and why they have decided to call PASCO home.
Grace started her healthcare journey early in her life. Even before she graduated high school she knew that this was the compassionate path for her. Once she turned 18 years old and was able to work in healthcare, she jumped at the opportunity. This journey eventually brought Grace to Colorado and into the PASCO family in 2014.
Peggy started her nursing journey in 1988. She worked as an LPN in an Iowa hospital as a nursing extender, all while going to school to complete her nursing education. She started in Neurology but found her passions lie with pediatrics. “I like seeing children excel and then families are more involved,” she said. This love for pediatrics translates wonderfully into the life of home health, where she gets to meet and interact with children and families regularly.
Everyone’s career trajectories have a story behind them, a unique experience that transcends their resume and cover letter. Our PASCO Nurse Jenny Jordan, RN, is no exception. When she is not working with PASCO (going on 10+ years) you can find her as a school nurse over at Fletcher Miller, a school for special learners.
Jade, an artist-turned-nurse, studied Fine Arts and Graphic Design prior to working for an insurance brokerage firm. Sitting in a cubicle behind a computer for the rest of her life did not appeal to her artistic impulses. Unexpectedly but not surprisingly, her artistic insight would ultimately translate innately into a career of compassion and connection through nursing. Much like art, nursing requires a high level of adaptability, creativity, and the ability to share in the wonders of this world.
In becoming a nurse, numbers and statistics are essential in helping treat a patient’s pain or discomfort as they heal. June Lamb’s experience as a nurse has become a shared experience with her patients, a spiritual journey through the trials and tribulations of life. This perspective is not learned but attained through her own experiences.
