Susan Van Sickle

I have always been drawn to volunteering, especially in the medical field.  I also wanted an outlet for my knowledge of Spanish.  I taught Spanish at Lee High School for my entire career. I was raised in the Dominican Republic and Philippine Islands which gave me a real appreciation for cultural diversity.  I see VIM as a community unto itself, with most patients forming warm relationships with staff, and each and every provider helping to create a very welcoming atmosphere.
