In 1633, the Daughters of Charity, were founded in Paris, France, by St. Vincent de Paul, and  St. Louise de Marillac. Both were deeply concerned with the extreme and pervasive poverty, and suffering of the poor.St. Louise de Marillac was the patron of St. Vincent de Paul, and his Ladies of Charity in their work of caring for the sick, the poor, and neglected. This was the beginning of the Sisters of Charity, SOC, of St. Vincent de Paul .

The Daughters of Charity, as they are known today, can still be found doing the work of St. Vincent and St. Louise de Marillac with 17,000 Daughters working in 90 Countries. The Daughters are actively involved in prayer and have a web page where here where you can make a request for inclusion in the Daughters prayers.

Like the Sisters of Charity,  I believe every act of caring is done as a Divine act and expression of the Divine.

Additionally, like the Sisters, I also believe sickness in life is a “teachable” moment offering the ability to get closer to the Divine or as I believe, an opportunity to find meaning.

Why tell the story? Because just like the Sisters of Charity, my dedication to nursing is serving the greatest good and highest vibration of this Planet as an instrument of healing.

My mission is to nurture the ability for each of you to be your own best primary care provider and healer.
