TEDxAlmansorPark 2019 Speaker | Nurse, Educator, Speaker, Coach.
Sandee is passionate about nursing and has over 18-years of experience in the Emergency Department. She knows all too well about life in a fast-paced work environment where nurses are selflessly giving to others while constantly running on fumes. Sandee is the founder of Nurses First, a coaching business specializing in nurses overwhelmed with heavy workloads and unable to find optimal balance in their lives. Nurses are known to put the care of everyone else first and sacrifice their own wellbeing. Sandee is raising awareness about social perceptions while influencing others about the power of caring for those who care for others.
Since childhood, Sandee has had the natural desire to save lives. She took in stray animals only to be told by her parents to return the neighbors’ dogs and cats she had “saved” from their own front yards. Sandee has a love for all living beings, and eventually found her calling in healthcare.
She currently works as the Nursing Informatics Specialist for a Pediatric Emergency Trauma Center in Orange County, California. She obtained her Baccalaureate Degree in Nursing, and she is a Certified Pediatric Emergency Nurse. Sandee is a Trauma Nurse Core Course (TNCC) Instructor, an Emergency Nurse Pediatric Course (ENPC) Instructor, and a Basic Life Support (BLS) Instructor.
