Bio

I will be pursuing a Master's in Professional Nursing through the University of Pennsylvania. It has been my dream to go there. When I got my acceptance letter I knew I would finally have the tools to propel me into the career I have dreamed of. I am passionate about pediatric healthcare and becoming a change agent for healthcare workers around the U.S. I have struggled with my own heath as a child. Through that experience it has pushed me to pursue this career.

    Hi, my name is Alysha Crowther I am from Santa Cruz California. Understanding my journey is crucial in comprehending my motivations and aspirations. My life has been shaped by overcoming health challenges, instilling in me a heartfelt kinship and advocacy for patients. These experiences have fueled my desire to become a nurse, driving me to ensure others receive the care and support they need during times of vulnerability just as I did. My communication degree has equipped me with valuable skills to navigate the complexities of the medical field and connect with patients on a deeper level. Additionally, my role as a real estate agent, assisting a family after their house burned down, emphasizes the importance of compassionate assistance in times of crisis. As a seeker of knowledge, I am committed to continuous learning, enriching my understanding and capabilities to better serve others in healthcare and beyond. In the next year, my focus lies in returning to school to achieve a Master’s in Professional Nursing at the University of Pennsylvania, laying the foundation to specialize in pediatric care. Over the next five years, I will immerse myself in the complexities of this field to become a beacon of knowledge and compassion for young patients and their families. My long-term goal, spanning the next decade, involves leveraging my expertise and passion to become a change agent within the pediatric healthcare landscape. I aim to advocate for the needs of pediatric patients, educate others on best practices, and influence policy to ensure that children receive the highest quality care possible. To achieve these goals, I plan to continually learn through hands-on experience, staying up to date on the latest developments in pediatric healthcare, and actively engaging in educational initiatives to promote awareness and understanding of pediatric patients' unique needs. My diverse experiences as a patient going through a difficult diagnosis, phlebotomist, volleyball team captain, and assistant teacher at Seven Directions and Cabrillo College have honed my unique blend of qualities: empathy, advocacy, and leadership. At Seven Directions I was able to guide students of different learning needs to perform at their best. My ability to see things through others' eyes allowed me to foster strong bonds and mutual respect for others. My punctual and energetic nature makes me excellent at multitasking which has benefited me in all that I do. In every role, whether drawing blood, leading my team on the volleyball court, or guiding clients as an assistant teacher or realtor, I foster a welcoming presence that puts others at ease when completing tasks efficiently. As a natural leader, I inspire and motivate those around me, setting a strong example of integrity and dedication in all I do.
