Friends and Family:

I am beyond excited to share the news that I was selected as one of six members for the Global Health Internship to Haiti in June 2014 with the Global Health Perspectives group through the Denver School of Nursing. For this internship, we are partnered with Barb Wilkerson, a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner, and her husband Dr. Rick Wilkerson, an Orthopedic Surgeon, and their Non-profit organization Love Takes Root.

I will be assisting in a nursing role in orphanages and the surrounding community in Jacmel and Port Au Prince. Our goal is to not only relocate the 50 orphans to their new home, but we also want to educate the community and Haitian health care providers as well, to teach preventative care that will enable these individuals to thrive independently long after our departure. My heart is filled with joy and gratefulness for this opportunity to contribute my knowledge and skills on a global nursing level, and would be deeply honored if you too could partner with me to raise the funds to get me there and support the work of Love Takes Root! My goal is to raise $2000 by May 5th. All of the funds go toward airfare, medical supplies and equipment for the Love Takes Root orphanage that will support them throughout 2014. Every single dollar helps. I would love to keep you posted as I prepare for, attend, and return from this life changing experience.

Please let me know if I can include you in emails about this internship or if there are any questions you might have. Thank you so much for your thoughts, support, and donations.
