Allie is unique in that she knew from middle school onward what profession she wanted to pursue – nursing. She shared how she discovered her goal of “spreading God’s love and grace” to others, and nursing was a clear fit!  Allie now works at Children’s Mercy Hospital as a pediatric float nurse who works in all units. Even though she works difficult night shift hours at the moment, she likes the variability of her day-to-day and gets to see a range of pediatric treatments.
