After my daughter, Shannon Brassil, ’15 (human development and family studies) graduated from URI, she went to New England Tech and became an RN. In 2018, she began working in the ICU at South County Hospital. She’s a new nurse, but has stepped up to the challenge this pandemic has created. While caring for the sickest patients, she has also become their friend/family member/comforter due to the restrictions on visitors. During this very stressful time for the medical community, she never fails to have a smile and a word of encouragement for others. She is my hero.
