Nickname?- My nickname is Puddin’. It was given to me by a Physician I worked with when I first became a nurse over ten years ago & it has stuck with me ever since.
Who would you most like to meet & why?- I would love to have met Jim Valvano, the coach of the N.C. State Wolfpack in the 80s. He had great passion for the game of basketball, was an amazing coach, motivator, & person, with a positive outlook until the day he died of cancer. His speech when he received the Arthur Ashe award was extremely inspirational to me & still brings a tear to my eye every time I watch it.
