I specifically run programs for high school students, and I love being able to make a difference in their lives, and wanted to transfer that passion over to the hospitals.”
What is your favorite #MOCmoment? “My favorite #MOCmoment has got to be the time we played for a patient who requested mariachi music. The musician played the closest thing they knew, and the patient started to run around the floor and eventually came back with a flower for the musician that he stole from the nurse’s station vase of flowers. I have tons of these stories that I save on my phone from each session, but this one definitely sticks out as one of my favorites.“
