An experience with her younger siblings helped Abby Brinkman discover her career goal.
Today, Abby dreams of caring for preterm babies as a nurse in the neonatal unit, a place where her younger brother and sister spent time after their births.
"I love helping people just like the nurses did for my younger brother and sister in the NICU," says Abby, a member of Briar Cliff's Catholic Daughters. "My mom always taught us to appreciate and do the little things in life. You may not think they are making a difference but they do. A smile goes a long way."
