“Faye is very hospitable, she greets every patient with a smile on her face,” commented a co-worker.

When explaining why she became a nurse, Faye responded, “My grandmother, Ruth Shears inspired me through her many years of compassionate care of the patients at St. Mary’s Hospital; plus I truly care about people.”
“The people I work with, the caring displayed toward the patients and co-workers,” replied Faye when asked what she likes the most about her job. “Through the worst time of my life my co-workers stood by me and held me up when I needed it. I also thoroughly enjoy working with my provider; I love her sense of humor,”
