from Masonic Villages’ Linked In:

Ashley Watts works as a registered nurse and clinical liaison for Masonic Village Hospice and is often the first medical professional to access and guide incoming patients and their families. Although nursing was a career that chose her, Ashley chose hospice. The care she provides centers around the comfort of her patients, which can be difficult at times, as patients aren’t always able to explain their needs. Although she has years of hospice experience under her belt, Ashley still faces the tough feeling of losing patients she’s grown close to. “In hospice, they say you hit a point in your career where you break down,” Ashley says. “I had that moment with a patient and many others after that, but then you pull it together because people are looking to you for comfort.”
