A high school dropout, married, with two children by the age of 19 Dr. Elaine has gone on to a full and successful life. Depression has played a role in her life since her early teens. With the help of numerous people and programs, extensive reading, and support Dr. Elaine has been able to pursue a life journey full of richness and happiness. Not every day, but most days are beautiful – who could ask for more? As a single mom, Dr. Elaine returned to school to become a nurse. She was fortunate to have the financial and social support of her ex-husband and his family.
Dr. Elaine, a retired RN, is compassionate, kind, open, respectful, and loving with a passion for nursing and leadership. “I believe everyone is a leader.” We all have what we need to be a leader, but sometimes it is buried deep inside. The first step is to lead yourself. During her years as an RN, Dr. Elaine saw a need for the development of leadership skills in the nurses with whom she worked. Most of the nurses had strong leadership skills but didn’t see them in themselves. When asked what kind of a leader they would consider themselves to be, the response almost unanimously was ‘I’m not a leader’. Had they spent too much time in a paternal environment to see their leadership skills?
