After having her only daughter, Annie, she put herself through nursing school all while having another job as a disk jockey in Meridian, MS. She then became a nurse in the ICU, as well as a traveling nurse for two very sick children. She loved her patients and they knew it. She was always told that she needed to remain "Professional" and to not get attached to her patients but that just wasn't in her nature.
