Heroes Among Us: Graham Valley, RN, BSN 

GrahamHello friends! We are delighted to continue our Cherokee Heroes series and introduce you to this month’s Cherokee Hero, Graham Valley. Graham has been a nurse for over two years and works in the Emergency Department at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. He always knew that he wanted to work in Critical Care, and he thinks one day he may eventually go into Medical Transport. His favorite part of his job is the randomness and spontaneity of the Emergency Department and the fact that each night is different from the next. He says that having the opportunity to truly help children while working with amazing and talented coworkers is what makes his job “incredibly enjoyable.” Plus, Graham really likes working the nightshift and doesn’t see that changing anytime soon.

Here are some fun facts about Graham:

  • He describes himself as energetic and outgoing.
  • He finds his work to be rewarding, very fun and incredible.
  • He enjoys anything music-related, and he does a lot of writing. In fact, music and journaling help him unwind from work and life in general.
  • As a kid, he always wanted to be a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, not only because the turtles talked to humans, but because he loved pizza!

Graham would like to tell new nurses to stick with it. He urges them to listen and take everything in that they can, test out new skills and try out new things. Specifically, for men pursuing nursing, he hopes that they disregard any resistance they may face and fight any stigmas, as “men can be just as powerful in that profession.” Graham enthusiastically proclaims, “Go into nursing!” And we are certainly glad that Graham followed his own advice.

For more about Graham, check out his inspiring video.

Love his look? Graham is wearing a Cherokee Workwear Originals Men’s V-Neck Top in Pewter and a Cherokee Workwear Originals Men’s Drawstring Cargo Pant in Pewter.

Heroes Among Us: Jennifer Steib, RN, BSN 

Jennifer Steib

June is all about Jennifer! We are delighted to introduce you to this month’s Cherokee Hero, Jennifer Steib, RN, BSN, as we continue our Cherokee Heroes series. Jennifer has been a pediatric nurse for five years, and she works in the PICU at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. In the PICU, she takes care of children who are the sickest of the sick, suffering from a broad range of serious health issues. For very personal reasons, Jennifer always knew from a young age that she wanted to work in pediatrics. Her brother was in and out of hospital during the first five years of his life, and the nurses went above and beyond to help her brother, as well as her and her sister, feel more comfortable and have a sense of normalcy during those difficult years. These nurses truly inspired her to pursue a career in nursing, and the positive and profound impact that they made on her is echoed every day in the way that Jennifer connects with her patients and their families.

Here are some fun facts about Jennifer:

  • Her hero is her mom, who, while dealing with chronic illness on a daily basis, raised three children who all graduated from college and have thriving careers.
  • She describes her job as rewarding and has learned to find what the child or their family is interested in so she can connect with them on a deeper level while caring for them.
  • In her spare time, you can find her running after her two children and volunteering at church in a group for moms.
  • The love she has for her family, including her extended family, is what keeps her going every single day.

For more about Jennifer, please check out her video. As Jennifer tells us, being a nurse has been “awesome every step of the way.” And we think Jennifer is truly “awesome,” too.

Love her look? Jennifer is wearing a Cherokee Workwear Originals V-Neck Embroidered Top in Royal and a Cherokee Workwear Originals Low-Rise Drawstring Cargo Pant in White.

Heroes Among Us: Mita Davis, RN, BSN 

Mita Photo

It’s time to meet Mita! We are thrilled to continue our Cherokee Heroes series and introduce you to this month’s Cherokee Hero, Mita Davis, RN, BSN. Mita has been a pediatric nurse for more than 10 years and works in Radiology. Growing up, Mita always enjoyed helping with her aunt’s four children, and she knew from this young age that she wanted to become a pediatric nurse. In fact, her favorite part of being a nurse is that she gets to be herself. A self-described Betty Boop, Mita likes talking to everyone, and it’s evident that her outgoing personality and positive energy touch the lives of the children she cares for as well as their families. As Mita tells us, “You know you’re a nurse when you have that feeling that you’ve helped someone. You know that you’ve done your part, even if it may be a small part.” But after spending time with Mita and sensing the warmth that she brings everywhere she goes, we know that the part she plays in helping those around her is anything but small.

Here are some fun facts about Mita:

  • She describes her work as “exciting,” and even though it can be sad at times, it is incredibly fulfilling.
  • The bond with her coworkers and their strong sense of teamwork, “make her whole day awesome.”
  • Just like her stethoscope, the flower in her hair is one of her must-haves for a day on the job.
  • She’s known around the hospital as Superwoman because she once lunged onto a moving train!

Mita calls herself “vivacious,” and it’s clear that her bubbly nature, positive outlook and generous spirit make an impact on the people around her every single day. And once you watch her video, we know she’ll make an impact on you as well.

Love her look? Mita is wearing a Cherokee Workwear Originals Mini Mock Wrap Top in Ceil and a Cherokee Workwear Originals Pull-On Pant in Ceil.

Critical Care Awareness Month 

Hi friends! Did you know that May is Critical Care Awareness Month? We are delighted to honor critical care professionals and the incredible work they do each and every day. Patients are admitted to the ICU during the most vulnerable times in their lives, and the scope of knowledge, help and support that critical care workers provide to these patients and their families is beyond compare. Lives are saved every single day. While the care provided is indeed critical, it’s the professionals themselves who are truly key in aiding people during their time of greatest need.

As a way to celebrate and thank critical care professionals, it’s traditional to wear the color blue throughout May. In fact, ICUs are decorated in blue as a way to highlight this special month. Cherokee Uniforms is proud to offer many blue looks that are a perfect way to honor the blue-ribbon professionals working in critical care.
