Helen has stated that she became a nurse because she wanted to have a positive impact on the people in her community at a time when they need it most. As a DAISY Award Honoree in the oncology unit there is no doubt she is achieving her goal! In the words of one nominator, " When Helen walks into room, a ray of sunshine has come to take care of you. She has a gentle, healing touch and an upbeat, caring personality. Your day is brighter and you feel better after Helen has cared for you".
