Why I love my job
Employer: Boston Health Care For The Homeless Program
Job: Nurse practitioner
"I am very humbled by caring for the Boston homeless population. Here I am, providing care for men, women, and children, when I could have easily been in their shoes. I am originally from Haiti and grew up very poor, but was given the opportunity to come to America.
"I started as a per diem nurse, transitioned into a full-time nurse, then became a nurse supervisor, and finally now a nurse practitioner. I like the challenges I face every day.
I rely on my co-workers as part of a team. We rely on each other and need each other's skills."
