Why do you love your job?
First and foremost, the kids crack me up! I also enjoy the challenge of explaining complicated medical topics in a way that is entertaining but also informative. On a more serious note, it is extremely rewarding to just be there to support a child or parent that is anxious about an illness in any way I can.
