Introducing myself


I am 35 years old, with a BA in Nursing and a Degree in Intensive Care, from Denmark. The first 6 years of my career I worked in a surgical ward (gastro) in Copenhagen, I have also been to Greenland for 4 months working in the Gynological/Obstetric ward in Nuuk. The last 4 years I´ve spent working at, and obtaining my Degree in Intensive Care, at an ICU ward in Copenhagen. I have a real passion for travelling and experiencing the world and it´s people, I very much look forward to serving on the Mercy Africa and meeting the people working and visiting the ship. Some of my interests include; music, books, film, creative stuff (drawing and so on), laughing/having fun:) I will be arriving on the 12th of January, and serving from then until the 21th og March. See you soon!

    Hi Gitte

    My name is Kim and I will be heading for the ship March 13-April 10, I will be the lead in the general surgery room so I hope our paths will cross as we will be there for a little bit together.

    Enjoy your humbling experience as this will be my second service on the ship.
