Now about ICU nurse Adrienne:
For the past twenty-five years Adrienne has been a professional nurse. She actually started in home health care. She is now an Intensive Care Unit nurse who is responsible for the most critically ill and cares deeply about her patients. She has raised two successful children, and her spry eighty-year-old mother gets phone calls and regular visits from her. Her daughter was seriously ill recently. Did Adrienne get flustered? Absolutely not! No matter what the emergency, even when it occurs in her own family, she never loses her calm. Adrienne is also a loving wife. She grows her own vegetables and herbs in her terraced garden. This gal is super nutrition conscious. And yes, she too is passionate about Avida.
A match made in heaven, you say? Totally!!!
