As an RN in the chronic transfusion program at the Pauline Allen Gill Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders (CCBD), Shelley is able to cultivate long-lasting relationships with her patients. When her patients come in for their check-ups and blood transfusions, Shelley treats their visits as family reunions.
“That’s a piece that I love so much about Children’s Health, she says. “In a way, I have another family.”
Shelley began her career at Children’s Health as a new nursing graduate in the in-patient General Pediatric Unit. During her seven years there, she explored different areas of the hospital and honed her nursing skills. After caring for several sickle cell patients, she knew her future was in the CCBD clinic.
“I feel thankful that I can be here and provide care for these patients,” Shelley says. “Children’s Health is a piece of who I am.”
