Children’s Volunteer Services presents: Red-Vested Rockstar!
1. Why she ROCKS?!
“I have always loved working with children; I enjoy seeing their imagination and creativity in action. I also love the opportunity to get a little goofy and join in their fun!
I am a nursing school graduate with an interest in pediatrics. I understand that the mental well being of each child in the hospital plays a big role in helping them get better. Knowing that I am helping these kids forget about the IV lines and monitors for a few hours and just focus on being a kid is incredibly rewarding.”
2. Favorite thing to do outside of volunteering?
“In my free time I love to be on horseback. Riding horses is not only a hobby for me but it is also very therapeutic… I absolutely love it.”
3. Do you have any kids or pets of your own?
“My family has a cat that my father rescued!”
4. If you could create a new candy bar, what would be in it and what would you name it?
“My candy bar would have salted caramel and real raspberries in it. I would call it the ‘Northeaster’ because I was born and raised in Northeast Minneapolis, and we had some raspberry bushes in our backyard.”
5. Share a favorite volunteer experience or story:
“I had a lot of fun spending time on the floors with a boy who was very excited to tell me all about the movie ‘The Avengers’. At the end of our visit, he insisted on making me some hot cocoa, then asked if I could give him a foot massage. It was incredibly cute coming from such a young boy!”
Thank you, Senna, for bringing your ‘inner kid’ to our kids!
