I am so happy that you have taken the time to visit my blog! My name is Tanisha Terry and I’m from Missouri City, Texas. I was raised in a double parent home by my two very best friends, my mom and dad (aka my M&D)! I am the baby of four siblings, and that plays a huge factor in me being the independent woman I am today. I come from a Christian home with strong values, morals, and all those other things the world lacks today.
The summer before my 8th grade year, I cared for my grandfather while my parents and siblings were away at work during the day. I vividly remember doing things for my paw paw and him saying “Thank you my little nurse” I’d smile and say, “You’re welcome paw paw but you know I’m gonna be a Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader/Dolphin Trainer” (laugh at my innocence). I was there for my grandfather in his last days, and as cliché as it sounds, when we buried him, I could hear him saying, “Thank you my little nurse”…and the rest was history! I graduated from high school with my heart set on becoming that little nurse my paw paw always knew I would be. I attended Stephen F. Austin State University in little ol Nacogdoches, Texas. I wish I could write about how I was destined to be a nurse so nursing school was easy for me but that would be a lie. Nursing school was THE hardest thing I have ever done. I struggled my entire way through school, but glory be to God, I have the most wonderful career to show for it!
After graduating, I moved back home to Houston and accepted a position at the #1 Hospital in Texas: Houston Methodist. I spent a year working in gynecology and it was… an experience. My second year, I trained as a mother-baby nurse in L&D and I currently work as a neonatal travel nurse. I love being outdoors, reading and shopping. I’m a girly girl who loves spa dates, massages, mani/pedis and all those other things I could probably live without, but why should I try? I’m a travel enthusiast with dreams of seeing this entire world. I love this crazy life and I’m so excited to share the adventure with you all! Comment below to let me know you’re here; I can’t wait to hear from you!
