More than a meme! Grace Cindric ’16

She’s never been a fan of the spotlight, but she admitted it was fun to laugh at the memes that were made from the viral photograph of her working as a nurse early in the COVID pandemic.

She’s now working as a travel nurse in hospital emergency departments around the country. She completed an assignment in California and started a new one in Denver.

The constant traveling works great for Cindric, whose favorite activities include rock climbing and mountain biking. Her plans are to work as a travel nurse for a few more years before picking a more stable position, she says.
