“My name is Gabriella Tyrrell, I am 23 years old and I have lived in the FL Keys for 20 years. I am a Registered Nurse who works on a Medical Surgical unit at Fishermen’s Community Hospital in Marathon and Mariners Hospital in Tavernier. In addition to working as a nurse full time, I am also a full time student in an accelerated RN-BSN program with an anticipated graduation date of December 2020. From there, I will be enrolling in a Masters Program to pursue becoming a Nurse Practitioner. I also serve as an active member and social chair for Alpha Delta Upsilon, a local sorority composed of driven women who host numerous events each year that raise money to donate to local families in need, such as the Miss Junior Orange Bowl. I am also an active member of the National Student Nurses Association. I graduated as Valedictorian of my Nursing class in May 2019. I started my nursing career in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic and continue to serve on the frontlines for our small but strong community.”
