James Hoag, RN
James is a Registered Nurse (RN) at AToN Center. James quotes Ralph Waldo Emerson , “the greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.” We learn to accept this rise and fall as the rhythm of life. Nursing harmonizes my two passions perfectly; care giving and teaching. These passions have existed within me from a very early age however obscure. The magnitude of influence my past has had in transforming me into the person I am today is immeasurable. It is wise to look in the past to assess the measure of a man but what is not easily seen is the change one’s past plays on their future. Today, I am a grown man whose priorities lie in being a positive contributor to society, providing for my family, and on all occasions, helping others.
