My name is Sophia Thompson and I am currently a Nursing Major at Montana State University. I am one who loves to help people in any situation, emotional or physical. I love to work in high-risk, fast-paced environments with those who share the same values as I do. I am a quick learner and can think quickly. I have shadowed multiple doctors and nurses for a total of about 34 hours from a clinical setting, to a large hospital. Socializing and making people feel welcomed and comfortable through empathy, patience and knowledge are my biggest goals for my career future. I love answering any questions people ask and knowing that I am always there to help.
