Miki is passionate about working as a patient advocate, and simplifying healthcare concepts in a way that patients and their families can understand. She has also been a volunteer with the American Red Cross for 9 years, and served as part of their National Youth Council.

In her own words,
"Nursing is a challenging, fast-paced career requiring critical thinking, time management, and prioritization skills. I really enjoy being able to communicate with patients, and working at the bedside. I always ask myself, “What can I do today to help make this patient have the best experience possible?”
Professional style means the ability to look fitting for my role in healthcare, while making my patients feel that I am approachable and friendly. Comfort and style is so important in healthcare, due to the long working hours. I always want to look professional, put-together and feel comfortable all at the same time!"
