Jamie Garvey of Fort Smith, AR is also a previous Degen Scholarship winner. She attends UAFS and will get her BSN degree this December 2023! She received a $1,500.00 scholarship.
This young lady also is a massage therapist, yoga therapist, and dog groomer. When the pandemic hit, she had to close her yoga studio and her massage therapy business took a bit hit, but it allowed her to reflect on what she really wanted to do, and she came to the decision to become a nurse.
Once she graduates, she would like to spend 1 – 2 years in ICU and then move on to Oncology or become a Hospice nurse; eventually, she plans to become an Advanced Nurse Practitioner and implement holistic nursing into family practice.
How lucky we are to have her in our area! She will be a great nurse!!
