Bio: Hello! My name is Camie Mendon and I hail from the tiny town of Orland in Northern California. I grew up in a rural farm community where orchards and diesel trucks are found equally plentiful. I am the youngest of 7 children, but for the first 7 years of my life I grew up with 10 older brothers and sisters (we had legal guardianship of 4 additional children for that time). So you could say I learned a lot from them about the “do’s” and “don’ts” of life. Some of my favorite hobbies include softball, white water rafting, and country swing dancing. I recently returned home from serving in the Great Kentucky Louisville Mission (God bless it!). If I didn’t already love BBQ, backroads, and country music I definitely do now! As far as nursing goes, I hope to work in the ER and eventually become a flight nurse. Ever since I was a small child I have wanted to work in the medical field and have been fascinated with emergency medicine. This desire was further instilled in me after one of my older brothers suffered a traumatic brain injury and survived after being in a nearly fatal motorcycle accident. I want to help people the way those nurses helped my brother and my family!
