    Personal Statement regarding possible contributions to PNAA Foundation:

    I believe in the overall mission of the PNAA Foundation. My humble contribution to the Foundation mostly involves continuous commitment to financial support. Attendance in the regular meeting of the Officers and Executive Board does not always agree with my work calendar, however, I find ways to fill-in with the issues and the project of the foundation. I serve in the various humanitarian committee projects such as the medical mission. As Max Depree claims, “The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality. The last is to say thank you. In between, the leader is a servant”. Currently, I have been in the quiet zone due to the impact of pandemic on students’ performances in the licensing exams. I am part of the team mandated to plan strategically with the goal of improving NCLEX passing rate. PNAA Foundation will continue to be my charity of choice to support both financially and in kind in the form of my servant leadership. A viable team consists not only of productive innovative leaders but also proficient followers. I am an excellent follower, that is my expertise, I follow the leaders (plans or instructions). God bless us all, and to God be the Glory.

My expertise came from working in various departments such as geriatrics, medical-surgical, cardiac telemetry, medical procedures, labor and delivery, clinical research, hematology –oncology and medicine-pediatrics comprehensive care. I completed my Bachelor of Science in Nursing at St. Paul College of Manila, and MSN on Administration and management with active RN license and PHN certificate from California BRN. My passion for service goes outside the doors of healthcare institutions. Graduating BSN with community leadership recognition has been the flying start of my commitment to various community services and leadership. My awareness and desire to promote quality of life is reflected on all diverse community volunteer participations I do. In summary, as catholic certified volunteer for Cathedral Of Our Lady of Angels, leadership council member at Los Angeles Downtown Women’s Center, community outreach chair for Philippine Nurses Association of Southern California (PNASC) , annual medical mission volunteer thru The Philippine Medical Association of Southern California. I can possibly contribute to PNAAF with creative projects . I currently serve as president for PNASC West LA subchapter.
