My name is Izak. Currently I work as a nurse on the Trauma Cardiac Surgical unit at Sunrise Hospital. Before that I working in the neurological sciences unit at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. Earning a minor in Spanish may not come into play every day in the obvious ways-speaking or writing in Spanish, but the LLL department equipped me well for stellar performance as a nurse. Because of my language courses I have great communication skills and I better understand the Greek and Latin roots of healthcare terminology. This allows me to better explain complex healthcare problems in a way that my patients and their family members will understand.

I enjoy cosplay and tabletop gaming, I love my cat, my favorite color is blue, and I have a slight cheese addiction.
