“I enjoy the christian environment at HLGU,” she says. “There is an atmosphere of love and civility which radiates from the staff and faculty at this facility. I came to HLGU to share the joy of my profession as a registered nurse and share the importance of christian values in our professional practice through serving other’s needs. I encourage students to explore their spiritual growth and allow God to lead them in their professional practice.”
