Model Profile – Meet Veronica Parsons – Annisi
Veronica has worked as a Registered Nurse in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit since 2004. She chooses to participate in Fashion Heals because she wanted to be part of an event which helps raise money for cancer research. She also thought it would be a fun thing to do with her daughter. Wow, yes, Fashion Heals is definitely a family affair!
Her Most Memorable SickKids Moment
I have to say that every shift here will create some type of memory. There can be so many feelings experienced within the same shift which can be wonderful and at the same time exhausting. Although I have to admit that letting parents to hold their newborn baby for the first time, or even better discharging their baby home are my favourite kind of shifts.
Her SickKids Testimonial
My daughter had surgery this past December and I was truly overwhelmed by the amount of support and services that were available to my daughter and my family during those 2 days; the experience has humbled me as a person and as a nurse and it has brought me closer to the parents of our babies.
Her Key Message To Her Younger Self Would Be…
Don’t hold on to grudges. Life is short
We agree with that! She grew up in Ecuador until she was 11, her bucket list is simple… to travel to Greece. And if you ever happen to be stranded on an island with this lovely lady, you can expect to borrow a knife, lighter and salt from her.
What are your three go to items if stranded on a deserted island?
