Oseleah De Jesus;
Leah graduated from the Hawaii Pacific University with Bachelors in Nursing and Minor in Psychology in 2010. Since she graduated as an RN she has worked with a wide range of population from infants to the elderly and her clinical experience includes Urgent care, Longterm Care and Skilled Nursing, Clinic Manager at Arcadia and 15Craigside, and most recently in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at Kapiolani Medical Center and Kaiser Permanente Moanalua caring for critically ill infants, toddlers, teenagers and young adults.
In the PICU she encountered children with a history of substance abuse and mental health concerns which developed my passion in working with individuals in this population.
In her free time she enjoy arts and crafts, sewing, planting, and watching food/ travel Vlogs. She also love to travel, so far she has been to Japan, Canada (Calgary, Montreal), London, Paris, Switzerland, California, Houston, New York, Boston, Missouri, Oregon, and Washington
