Welcome to The Found Down Podcast.

This is a weekly show full of untold nursing stories that are sometimes hilarious, macabre, insane or anything in between.  This is show is brought to you by me and by your fellow colleagues.  This also is a show that is devoted to nurses and other healthcare workers.  I interview different individuals in the healthcare space and talk about issues related to our work in order to create an authentic space.

In this height of the Covid 19 pandemic, the most stressful time any nurse has lived through, it is important to offer an outlet and a space for us. It is time to offer a mental vacation so you can laugh or cry or laugh cry... whatever suits you.  This is geared for medical professionals and so there will be a lot of medical jargon but for the tourists who jump on board, we’ll try to use laymans terms at times but we will not always get this right.  This is rated E and is mature in content.  We often discuss life and death because as nurses we commonly meet our patients at the intersection of life and death.   So this can get heavy.

I hope you enjoy this show and that you can relate to the reality that is nursing and healthcare these last two years.

My background

I have over a 13 years of experience as an ICU nurse with a myriad of experience in leadership positions such as lecturing, onboarding, mentoring and supervising nurses.  I am a podcaster and podcast producer.  Found Down is my personal project and I can't wait for you to listen to it.  This show intends to pull back the veil on what is it really like to be in healthcare.

Also, I started Unwoundretreats.com, a travel and wellness business for nurses where I help nurses practice self-care together, learn, and travel to amazing locations.  We are going to Morocco and Mexico this 2022! I aim to build resiliency, battle burnout, and foster community.  Additionally, I speak to nurses about nurse burnout and host mini-retreats that allow for us in healthcare to practice self care.  Get in touch here!

My mission

I want to pull back the veil on the reality we as nurses experience by coming together as a profession through storytelling.  Each week I aspire to interview interesting guests and host a variety of different topics relevant to the healthcare world.
