I met Vickie when we worked together at the University of Chicago Hospitals in January 1997. Vickie had moved from Oregon USA where she had been a staff nurse. She had earned her Master’s degree in nursing and was working as a Clinical Nurse Specialist for Cardiac patients. In 2000, Vickie moved back to her home state of Ohio to be near family.
Vickie has worked with cardiac patients in 3 different states and is very good at her job. She is kind and compassionate, intelligent, and regarded highly by her patients and colleagues. Her professionalism is unmatched. She is an excellent Nurse, sister, daughter and friend. Vickie is retired now, and I consider our friendship and professional relationship a true blessing.
