I would like to thank all District 14 Board members, district members, NYSPANA State Board members, and all of you who I have had the privilege of working, networking, socializing, and becoming close friends with during my years in the perianesthesia arena. I will never forget what I have learned from all of you so that I can care for each patient with respect and dignity. As my career path has taken me in a new direction, I know that each and every first week of February, I will reflect and cherish the memories of NYSPANA.
To each and every one of you, it has been my pleasure serving you.
