Meet Grant

 

  • I live in St. Louis, Missouri

 

  • I am a nurse at Barnes-Jewish Hospital

 

  • What made me want to become a nurse was when our first child was hospitalized with RSV when he was about 8 months old.  He needed to be hospitalized for a week.  The nurses were very busy but found/made time to be present and compassionate with our son and us.  It made me want to be there for others in their time of need. 

 

  • My favorite thing about being a nurse is being there to help others.

 

  • A fun fact about myself is that I played baseball for an international traveling team that went to Japan for 3 week when I was about 12 years old.
