What motivated you to become a nurse?

I knew in my heart that I always wanted to help people. It might have something to do with my role in my family—I’m the oldest of six children. Also, my dad was a surgical corpsman in World War II, and he always talked about his experiences working with patients.

What would you like people to learn from Shara’s story?

Shara is a person of faith, openness and love.

What word do people most often use to describe you?

I hope they describe me as kind.

What is your health ambition?
