What is the biggest obstacle that you’ve faced in your life?  “Myself.”
Do you have any goals that you’re working towards?  “The next song.”
“Some of my most amazing experiences in nursing have been just holding somebody’s hand as they passed away. Some people think that’s really morbid, but it’s the most important life event other than being born.”
