I’m Jon Brockelman. I’m an oncology certified registered nurse at a large academic medical center here in Chicago. I’ve spent most of my 20 year career working with oncology patients, and I’ve recently started a master’s degree in Healthcare Quality and Patient Safety at Northwestern University. I’m on Facebook and LinkedIn, I’m on Insta as well, but I’m not so insta-savvy. Brené Brown says that when we share our stories, we heal the world. I think of that each time I share mine.

Jon and Sarah discuss the change that one person can make in the world, the balance of nursing as an art/science, and how perfectionism feels harder to heal from than addiction, being gay and being HIV+.
