Grown Folks Talk, Homeschooled by a single mom (12:30)
One lesson that stood out about Amelia’s experience was Amelia’s Mom was a nurse who was also a single mom, but she was able to find time to homeschool Amelia and her brother. Here’s a little more information about Amelia and her podcast. On the Business of Nursing, she shares a personal collection of information and inspiration related to nursing. Amelia states that the sole reason she is still a nurse in such an emotionally taxing field is that she loves facilitating human connections that alleviate all sorts of pain.
