I've been with Kindred Healthcare about 18 months. And the reason I came and the reason that I have stayed, are the same set of reasons. About 18 months ago, I had the misfortune of losing my dad and my father-in-law, in the course of about four months. And it was very painful. And after that experience, I filled a very strong movement to want to come back to the four walls of a hospital, but not just any hospital, a longterm acute care hospital that was servicing the patients and the family members who are going through the same problems that I had just experienced personally. It has been incredibly rewarding to know that I can take my own experience and apply that to those who need me on a day-to-day basis. And for that, I feel very blessed and happy to be here.
