Maria I Eargle

Job Title
Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN)
Education
Associates Degree in Practical Nursing and Bachelors in Psychology
Experience
1 Year of Experience
Bio

First of all, I am a mother of two boys who are my world. I graduated in Psychology from the University of Knoxville, Tennesse and worked in that field for many years. After that, I went into sales and enjoyed it very much. I married, had my boys and the privilege to stay home with them while they were younger and was so thankful for that time. Once the boys started school, I felt that there was something missing from my life, something for me... I had said that in the past that if I could go back and do it all again I would go into medicine, so here I am. I have always loved medicine because my father is a physician who I have always looked up to as my mentor. I buckled down, juggled full-time school and with the help of god, my friends and family here I am.
