Hello! I’m Marissa. Nice to meet you!


I’m a twenty-something Emergency Room nurse with over 4.5 years of various experience (including inpatient!) who just started grad school. I’m Catholic, perpetually single, generally nerdy, and always up for coffee. This is my story, the stories of my patients (altered and wiped clean of any HIPAA identifiers), and spiritual musings that have helped me to grow in my faith in Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Want to explore the site? About will tell you more about my story. Bookshelf is a listed of recommended reading (spiritual, scientific, fiction, and more!) and books I want to read. Policies and Procedures is the boring (but necessary!) legal mumbo jumbo.

The sidebar called Let’s Talk About will list a variety of topics I blog about frequently.  Otherwise, general categories of blog posts include:

I spend a good chunk of time researching, writing, editing, etc. instead of working extra shifts. If you’d like to help me financially, you can do so by shopping!
