Brittany is a Nurse Practitioner.
In what area of nursing?
I just graduated from the Oncology Nurse Practitioner program at UCLA and now I am working my first job at Wilshire Oncology.
What have you been most surprised by at your job working with cancer patients?
I thought I was going to be the one to do the nurturing and giving. I had no idea that I would get back so much.
Do you believe in a higher power? If so, what do you call it?
Yes, and I call it God.
If you were fearless, what would be the first thing you would do?
I would take a greater professional risk and pursue a more pointed area of cancer study. I would also work overseas to help change health policies to provide cancer care for people who can’t afford it.
For what would you like to be forgiven?
I can’t share it directly, but there was a time in my life when I lived in fear. I took actions then that I regret. I am trying to reconcile that with myself and everyone that I affected. I have learned from my mistakes, but I wish I would have handled that time of my life differently.
